Belfair WA Real Estate~Real Estate Homes for Sale and Sold Market Report~August 2010~

Belfair WA Real Estate~Real Estate Homes for Sale and Sold Market Report~August 2010~

Summers end has come and it's time to move forward into spring. Looking back on the month of August, I thought it was time to post the statistics for the Belfair WA area of what has been happening in the real estate market. 

This is specific to Belfair, Dewatto and Tahuya (98588), North Shore Hood Canal,  as well as parts of South Shore with a zipcode of 98528.

90 Active homes for sale : These are homes that are for sale that are represented by Brokers through the Multiple Listing Service.  Actives are a sellers competition especially with the wide array of choices available. With that said remember that it COULD be a "sellers" market within the overall market depending on your price range. Check out my earlier blog : Buyers Market or Sellers Market, The Market within the Market.

The price range for these homes range from $52,500 on up to 1.3 million.  Quite a variety of prices, styles, and amenities!

5 Sold properties. Homes that actually closed and changed ownership or the month.

The average price range was $148,360

The average market time was 368 days; the homes that were on the market the longest had significant price changes from their original listing date and these stats also show the truth in the statement "THE LONGER THE HOME IS ON THE MARKET TYPICALLY THE LESS RATE OF RETURN A SELLER WILL RECEIVE."  Homes definitely need to be priced right for the market!

The most expensive home sold for this area was at $285,000.  The others were under $200,000 which tells you where the buyers are spending their money. 

There are many, many choices out there for buyers right now. Whether you are looking for that first time home, a "move up" home or a vacation home - there really is no better time to buy with interest rates at a smoking low rate!
