I’ve been hearing the same thing at a lot of my listing appointments from my clients, “Are we in another real estate bubble?” My buyers agents are hearing this too from people looking to purchase their first home or sell and buy a house, or second time buyers as we call them. I decided to roll up my sleeves and put my 20+ years of real estate knowledge to the test… I decided to write an article about it!
Here is the post card I just sent out to all my friends and clients:
Hi everyone, Rosie here! My team and I are rocking right now, and it seems like I am getting a lot of the same questions during my listing appointments. My buyer agents are hearing the same thing from their real estate clients looking to buy a home too. “is is a good time to sell a home? What is the real estate market like?” So I thought I would share some exciting Fairwood real estate market stats with you!
For real estate transactions (both homes for same in 98058 zip code and buying a home in 98058 zip code) here are the numbers for residential homes:
Homes For Sale in March 2018: 24 units.
• Up 41.2% compared to last month
Homes Placed Under Contract in March 2018: 62 units.
• Up 121.4% compared to last month
In Fairwood Greens specifically, here are the numbers just for the neighborhood. If you are thinking of selling a home in Fairwood Greens or thinking of buying a home in Fairwood Greens these numbers are important:
9 homes Sold/Pending within last 30 days
Average home is 2,030 square feet, that’s $263.33 per square foot!
Average days on market is 7
Average home value in Fairwood Greens and sold price: $521,667 (104.8% above list price).
WOW!!! Fairwood real estate is sizzling right now! Let me know how the Rosie Rourke Team can help you get top dollar with our proven success strategies in a seller’s market.
AND, my team doesn’t just buy and sell homes in 98058 or Fairwood Greens… we have clients all over the King and Pierce County areas! We did over 130 transactions last year ALONE, making us one of the top real estate agent and teams in King County!
Hi everyone!!! Can you believe that February is almost over? Spring will be here before you know it, which is historically a busy time in the real estate market. But for the Rosie Rourke Team… we stay busy all year long! While other agents are taking time off … we are closing deals! A LOT OF DEALS!
Just look at this… we closed 133 deals last year and helped over a hundred families in the Fairwood, Renton, Kent, Maple Valley, Covington, Auburn areas and beyond! We listed homes, helped our clients buy new houses and helped some first time home buyers navigate the real estate process. The Rosie Rourke team has yet again been named in the TOP 1% of all real estate teams in the area!
Yes, the numbers are nice, right? But what does that mean for YOU, the seller or buyer? It would take the average, stand alone agent over 13 years to gain the experience and knowledge of just ONE YEAR of the Rosie Rourke Team servicing our clients. Now multiple that by the 20+ years of experience that Rosie Rourke has by herself selling and buying real estate. Now add in a 7 person team behind that… can you see what I am getting at?
Because of the amount of clients we help we have the knowledge and the experience to out preform other agents… Your home buying process will be smooth and supported by our dedicated and expert buyer agents Melissa Hudson and Colleen Linder. Your selling process will be seamless and the offers will come rolling in with the know how from listing agent and team Leader Rosie Rourke and listing manager Liz DeSmith. And supporting our producers is an amazing team of Sandie, Jill and Carey!
Most agents are one man or one woman shows… they have to wear many hats on a daily basis! Details can fall through the cracks and quite frankly, they are overwhelmed… especially in this market! This is why a TEAM will always out preform an individual!
Contact us today if you are thinking of SELLING your home or BUYING a home! We are excited to show you personally why we are the TOP TEAM in the area and why over a hundred clients trusted us with their real estate dreams last year!
PS. We also specialize in helping our clients UPSIZE! With home prices going up, it’s a great time to SELL, cash in on the equity, and BUY a larger home! And no… you won’t have to be displaced either!
-Liz Mathewson and Marsh Pancheau bought and sold a home in 2017 in Maple Valley, WA
WANTED… People who want to sell their home and cash in on this incredible market! Our buyer’s agents Melissa Hudson and Colleen Jacobs Linder have pre-qualified buyers ready and waiting to make offers… NOW! I know, it’s only a few weeks into the new year, is the market that hot? The answer is YES! But, there is a shortage of homes for sale in Kent, Renton, Fairwood, Maple Valley, Bellevue, Auburn, and all areas in South King County & North Pierce County!
Don’t wait until spring, NOW is the time to list… Less homes for sale = Less competition and more qualified buyers looking at your listing! https://rosierourke.com/
With this post, I am happy to be continuing my “Fairwood Featured Business” series… and I’m excited to share my recent experience with you!
My ongoing passion as the top real estate agent in the Renton & Fairwood area is to highlight and celebrate the Fairwood neighborhood I live in, raise my kids in and work in. I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings. So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood specifically and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to home.
Previously on this blog, I have featured Plaza Cleaners, Fairwood Thai Cuisine, and Cosmo Nail Parlor, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, Fire District #40, Station 17, Shakey’s, There Ya Go Espresso, Salon Tii Gavo and The Wine Alley, and Handy Man Craig!
This month I am EXCITED to feature Este Egan, an Aesthetician at Salon Tii Gavo!
I recently had a facial done by Este at Salon Tii Gavo! She is a well known figure in the Renton area, she is involved with the area schools and you’ve probably ran into her at Starbucks a time to two! Being as busy as I am, I don’t take a lot of “me time.” But I have to say after spending an hour with Este… I think that needs to change!
First of all, Este runs her business out of Salon Tii Gavo, which is well known as being one of the top salons in the Renton/Fairwood area. The moment you walk in you instantly feel the weights of the world lift from your shoulders! Then you are greeted by Este, she is super cute with a charismatic personality. I ended up with a relaxing facial and collagen treatment mask.
After the treatment my skin was moist, supple, and my husband said I was glowing! Este was able to relax and rejuvenate me in an hour… totally worth it!
Este is also well known for her waxing services.
Este is available via phone, just call or text 425-277-5410. And GUYS… a gift certificate for the holidays is sure to please that special someone in your life 🙂
