January Sales Activity in Auburn, WA

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Select R.E. WA State: 75200

January sales in Auburn, Washington were slightly up during the first month of 2009! Granted these are small gains, but I'll take 'em!

Trying to get a sense for the current market trend as far as how long it might take to clear out the current inventory was a bit tricky, however. Our snowy and rainy weather during December and January, combined with the holiday season, really put a damper on sales. Because the last three months comprises November, December, and January, I've used information for the last six months (August through January) in order to determine what might be a predictor for how long it could take to sell a home.

Remember, however, that this information is just an estimate. Your house WILL SELL as long as, in the eyes of a buyer, it's the best house on the market -- both as far as condition and price. It's important that an agent evaluate the market right around your own home to determine just what's necessary in order to achieve a quick sale. Of course, it's up to both of you -- your agent and you -- to define "quick!"

Why, thank you for dropping by the stats posting, Gary! Yes, let's hope that little uptick continues here ... and across the nation too. I know that I'm a bit busier working with buyers! Whoo hooo!
