Jubilee Market Report - Taking a Look at Sales Since January 1, 2013
Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA (Managing Broker - City Realty Inc)

It is really hard to believe that we are approaching the end of 2013, but my calendar says that we truly are.  So it seems like a good time to go ahead and look at what the sales at Jubilee have been like for the year thus far.

 

Jubilee

I know from showing homes in Jubilee that the sales have been pretty brisk - often at least one home that a buyer thought they might like to see has already gone pending by the time we are heading out to look at homes.  And in fact, that impression is borne out by the statistics.  So far, since the first of the year, our NWMLS shows 39 homes in Jubilee have sold at prices ranging all the way from $206,500 to $449,900.  This includes both new construction homes and resale ones. 

The median sales price for this group of sales is $284,530.  This reflects that many of the sales have been of larger homes.  In fact the average square footage for sold homes is 1711, although there are also quite a few resale homes in the 1200-1500 square foot bracket.

Average days on the market shows as 184, but this is somewhat deceptive.  I count a total of 12 homes that sold in less than 60 days.  The average sales price represents 96.83 % of list price (although this ratio is of sales price to list price at the time it went under contract, so does not reflect whether the original list price was higher).

Jubilee is attracting a lot of interest as buyers realize that the homes plus the lifestyle it offers are just very hard to beat for the active 55+ crowd!  Let me know if you are thinking about buying a house in Jubilee and I can help you find one that feels like home.

Jubilee Market Report for November 2013 - What's for Sale??
Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA (Managing Broker - City Realty Inc)

 

Jubilee

The real estate market at Jubilee has been pretty brisk this year, with houses selling fairly quickly and many buyers waiting eagerly for new listings to appear on the market.

Currently I found 10 homes listed for sale in our NWMLS, and they include 4 brand new homes and 6 resales.  Pricing on listed homes starts at $197,900 currently for a resale home that has approximately 1277 square feet and 2 bedrooms, 1.75 baths.  The high end for list price is $ 435,000 for a large home - 1928 square feet.

The median asking price currently is $383,700 which reflects the number of larger homes on the market, commanding a much higher price.  Since the majority of the smaller homes have two bedrooms, the larger homes do appeal to those buyers who would really prefer to have a den in addition to the two bedrooms. 

If you are thinking about moving to Jubilee, let me know if I can provide you with more information about this very cool community or about the homes available to buy.

Top Ten Reasons You Might LOVE Living At Jubilee in Lacey WA
Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA (Managing Broker - City Realty Inc)

Jubilee in Lacey WA

 

The Jubilee neighborhood in Lacey, WA is one of my favorite places to show homes, and it offers a number of benefits to make it a great choice for active 55+ buyers. Here are my top ten reasons why you might LOVE living at Jubilee:

10. There are a variety of floor plans and sizes of homes, all with open living spaces and one level convenience.

9. Perfect for snow bird folks or frequent travelers - the monthly homeowner's fee includes front yard maintenance (even the irrigation in front for watering) and backyards typically include minimal, if any lawn (though plenty of room to barbecue, relax on patio or deck, and putter with the amount of gardening you choose to have).

8. A multitude of outdoor activities available - enjoy a brisk or leisurely walk, hop on your bicycle, play a few games of tennis, hike down the trail to the saltwater beach, or golf every single day at the beautiful pair of golf courses right next door to Jubilee.

7. Indoor activities at the Lodge - everything from a lending library, to pool tables, to card games of any type imaginable, to a comfy couch where you can cheer on the Seahawks with other residents or curl up to chat or read next to the fireplace.

6. Learn something new - there are ballroom dancing classes,or explore how to play pickleball or do genealogy research.

5. Get that exercise in without needing to drive to - or pay for - a gym. The Lodge includes a fantastic indoor swimming pool, a fitness room well equipped with exercise equipment & weights, and more spaces for yoga, balance ball work, and more.

4. If you are new to some forms of exercise, or just want some expert help, there are YMCA instructors ready to help you improve your fitness level, while having fun & avoiding injuries.

3. Convenient location where shopping, restaurants, banking & other services are minutes away at the growing Hawks Prairie commercial area.

2. Also close at hand are the plethora of activities & fun in the greater Olympia area - Farmer's Market, theater & arts, seasonal events like Sand in the City or the spring Arts Walk & unique Procession of the Species parade.

1. But the number one reason is the people at Jubilee - the most recent buyers I worked with reported that as they moved into their new home, neighbors stopped by to welcome them with pies & cakes - even the mailman stopped by to greet them. When I show prospective buyers the Lodge, current Jubilee residents always come up to say hello & say how much they love living in Jubilee ( I always have to say that I really, truly did not pay anybody to say these things!). The many activities make it super easy to quickly make new friends with like interests.

If you are looking for a place for active adults, let me show you Jubilee in Lacey. I think you might just love living there too!
