The coming of Spring is always highlighted by the anticipation of a new baseball season. As always, I remain hopeful the Seattle Mariners can do well. But, I'm not just a good time fan (although 2001 was my fav) and I'll enjoy the season no matter what... because there is always next year.
The Wenatchee real estate market seems to be coming alive with the spring bulbs and buds. The combination of low interest rates, plentiful inventory, excellent pricing and happy spring weather seems to be bringing serious back out of hibernation.
In addition to the locals shifting from one home to another, we are also seeing out-of-towners and out-of-staters coming to Wenatchee once again.
The winter was a bit slow for sales. A quick review of the "SNAPSHOT" put out by Pacific Appraisal Associates shows sales activity down about 33% for the same period last year (February), yet the average sales price was only down about 3%. This shows, inspite of the slowdown, our market remained relatively strong. Still we have plenty of inventory and there are a lot of motivated sellers ready to sell their homes and move on.
We, at Willinger Real Estate, remained busy through the winter with our growing Property Management division. We are showing investors higher returns through controlled maintenance costs and low vacancy rates.
Hopefully, I'll be able to spend more time keeping up with this blog and keeping you informed about current news in the local Real Estate market.
