Hood Canal & Puget Sound Waterfront Home Sale Wrap up for 2008~Belfair WA: Are you thinking about summer time fun on the water?

Hood Canal & Puget Sound Waterfront homes for sale

Waterfront home sales along the South Shore, North Shore as well Southern Puget Sound shores of Grapeview and Allyn, stayed fairly consistent with the rest of the Belfair, WA real estate market for the year 2008.

We generally see the waterfront market have a market of its own. What I mean by that is that it will usually lean towards a normal market or a sellers market but 2008 was not like that.  Sellers saw the woes of a high amount of competition which is unusual in our area for waterfront homes for sale.

Buyers had many, many great choices and prices but only a few put their dollars out there as it seemed everyone fell prey to the same scared economy, bad news all around scene.  It was a buyers market even in the waterfront areana.

Overall the 2008 year for waterfront home sales along the South Shore, North Shore and Southern Puget Sound shores of Allyn and Grapeview saw a total of 18 sales. All in all not bad - 2007 showed 24 sales for the same waterfront area. 

The current inventory for waterfront homes for sale along the shores of the Hood Canal's North Shore and South Shore and southern Puget Sound shores of Allyn and Grapeview at a total of 34.  That is still a larger than normal inventory than we generally have at peak season of spring through summer. So there are many good homes and prices to chose from.

The prices for these waterfront homes on the market did slighty decrease, but not as much as we saw non-waterfront home properties prices decrease.

Everyone is curious as to what the new year of 2009 will bring. Will buyers take their curiosity and turn it into action to take advantage of the great choices, great prices and great interest rates? 

 Take advantage of the many opportunities that are awaiting out there.  Who knows when things will change again. 

 What are your plans for summertime fun this year?
