I thought I would do something a bit different this month, and show all of the specific MLS zones within our county, rather than just collective county-wide figures.
As you can see, each area is broken down by ‘Active Listings’ (how many homes are currently available for sale), the calculated ‘Months of Inventory’ for each area, how many homes have ‘Sold’ in the past 6 months, the average ‘sales’ price of those homes sold, the average ‘Listing’ price of the homes sold, the ratio % of sales price versus list price, and the average ‘Days On Market.’
Obviously, East Central Kitsap and West Bremerton are still the selling ‘hot spots’ as are Poulsbo, Port Orchard, and South Kitsap West of Hwy 16.
Where the market is heading right now is anybody’s guess. The tax credits courtesy of Uncle Sam for 1st Time Buyers and Repeat Buyers are soon to expire, so there will probably be some spurt of last minute activity for those. The changing season to warmer weather tends to bring out more Buyers and more Sellers as well. Additional short sales and bank-owned properties will continue to have a negative effect on pricing and appraisal valuations.
Whether you’re a Buyer or a Seller, there are opportunities out there. Give me a call and I can help you make better sense of the market, and determine what is your most wise and prudent direction.
