Are We In Another Real Estate Bubble?

Hi everyone!!!

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:

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!

“It SOLD for HOW MUCH?”

Seattle housing market bubble

This home in Fairwood Greens just sold for $60k above asking price! Our sellers are so happy and so are the new owners! Prices are climbing because there are more people moving to our area than there are homes available. This is not a bubble, it’s the new normal for our market in Western Washington!

Thinking of selling and cashing in? Give Rosie a call and have a casual conversation about it! She will give you a home evaluation and talk about your options, especially if you need to sell and then buy something else!
The Rosie Rourke Team is here to help!
