Celebrating in Seattle

By
Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams West Sound Realty

 According to a recent Forbes.com article, homeowners in the Seattle area are dancing in the streets!

Why? Because the Seattle area is the Number One Best Housing Markets in the U.S.

According to data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the city's median home price in the 1st quarter hit $380,200, up a whopping 12.3% from a year earlier. And it's not just the Seattle area, but the entire Pacific Northwest Region as well. In Portland, Ore., prices jumped nearly 9% and the capitol city, Salem, it grew up over 15% in the same time period.

Today's weather here on the Kitsap Peninsula was yet another reason why many are flocking to our area. We nearly reached a rather unseasonal 90 degrees! It's days like today that make us Washingtonians quickly forget the long endless overcast days of constant drizzle.

Pretty soon, crabbing season will start up again, and many local boaters with take to the waterways of the Puget Sound, in search of the prized Dungeness Crab!

Whether you're close to retirement, just starting out, or simply wanting a slower, safer, higher quality of life for your family, seriously consider Washington State for your next move!

Betsy - Hey, Girl! You're right, we do have a 'good vibe' going here! We came from Kansas, with two very extreme seasons. This is much more pleasant, even with all of our overcast and drizzle.

Are you going to the get-to-gether on Saturday?

Carole - things can be a bit slower over on the Kitsap Peninsula where we are, but for those who want a little faster pace, it's only a 30 minute ferry ride to downtown Seattle!
