Fife, WA June 2010 monthly home sales statsIn June there were 10 home sales in Fife, WA. Same amount as last month. I thought this number would be a little higher due to the tax credit expiring June 30th, but as of yet there has not been a surge in Fife home sales. Probably because the majority of them are short sales and most banks still do not have an efficient way to process them (and so most buyers avoid them).Here are the addresses for the 10 sales in Fife-6325 Discovery St E4621 15th St E2621 58th Ave E3438 Celebration Ave4034 Heritage Ave E6625 Park St E4003 Heritage Ave E6440 43rd St E5442 Reflection Circle E6224 Sheffield LaneHere are the averages-The average square footage was 1841.The average $ per square foot was $123.97.The average days on market was 97.

The federal government has extended the $8000 tax credit, they've added a $6500 tax credit, and they're hoping that these will stimulate the housing economy.  Many skeptical folks say that $8000 is pennies in light of the cost of a home, not worth the effort.  My question to you is this:  How many mortgage payments will $8000 make? Take a look at this great home in Fife, WA, centrally located between Seattle and Tacoma, for only $285,000.  If you bought this great home for sale in Fife and got the $8000 returned, how many free months of living is that?  Pretty intriguing.
