Near North Seattle Real Estate Market

The residential real estate markets just north of downtown Seattle including; Ballard, Fremont, Wallingford, Phinney Ridge and Green Lake appear to have stabilized and buyers are once again actively pursuing available properties.  In the last 30 days our Keller Williams Office in Wallingford has experienced a surge in accepted offers.  With the low interest rates and some quality properties becoming available at realistic prices, interested buyers are successful in purchasing homes.

The key to selling a home in today’s market is; (1) pricing the home properly, (2) preparing the home for sale (staging, cleaning, painting, etc.), (3) recognizing that your home should be in the top condition (top 30%) of all homes in your price category.

The key to buying a home in today’s market is; (1) your full service real estate agent should be showing you the qualified homes within 24 hours of them becoming available on the NWMLS, (2) you should be willing to make a decision and write an offer to purchase as soon as you see what you’re looking for.  If not, it’ll be sold to someone else. (3) have your paper work together and follow the deadlines that your agent reviews with you to close the transaction.

Best of Luck
