Mason County Washington Sales Market Report Dec. 2008

I am a stat freak, I admit it.

I use the stats on a daily basis and have them in my head all the time so that when ANYONE asks me about the Belfair WA real estate market and more specific home sales, (as well as the other surrounding areas, such as Allyn, Grapeview, Shelton and LakeLand Village), I am prepared to answer them with knowledge and current information.

I love showing home buyers that there are some great opportuntiies out there and that now is the time to get off the fence and do it.  Who knows when things will change?

I love sharing and educating home sellers in the local Belfair WA real estate market as well, and also on how I can get the job done if we use the facts and statistics and aggressive marketing strategies that work (which includes being priced right from the gitgo). 

Below is the wrap up for December 2008 for the last two weeks in Mason County WA and what we saw for closed sales during that time. 

I reblogged this post from Richard Bell, the Managing Broker with Windermere Peninsula Properties of Belfair and Allyn WA. He is a stat man as well.

If you would like  more information on homes sales in Mason County, WA, or something in particular that you would like to know, I would love to share that knowledge with you!  Drop me a line, give me a call or leave me a comment. 

Considering the weather, the sales that Mason County WA area had seen in the last two weeks of December, the sold volume was not too bad.

Take special note of those prices though of the ones buyers are buying...

Mr. Seller  are you priced correctly for the market and for you area?
