Closed Transactions July 15-21 A subscriber emailed me this week: "Jeez, Paul, can't you make these reports less like objective Wall Street Journal reports and more fun like we see on Fox News?" Well okay, Tim, this headline's for you. Bet you opened it, too! I guess I can fun it up a little, but I won't lie about the statistics. okay The good news: the market is picking up, especially in Poulsbo, and buyers are snapping up well-priced homes quickly. Buyers are offering 92-100% of what sellers are asking. The hard news: selling prices lower on average than last year during this period. If you'd like the selling details of the home that closed in your neighborhood,  just ask.

These statistics are for Poulsbo, including the downtown core, from the head of Liberty Bay southeast to Ne-Si-Ka Bay, and parts north to Sawdust Hill Rd. Other parts of Poulsbo and its suburbs should have similar trends. The June median sales price for Poulsbo was $359,500, up about 24% from a year ago. This rise in price reflects a change in the distribution of sales rather than an increase in all market closed sale prices. With expiration of the homebuyer tax credit, fewer first time buyers are in the market, while the low interest rates are still attracting move up and downsizing buyers who want to move in the summer. The more stable three month moving average closed sale price was $320,529, about 1% higher than a year ago.The Kitsap County 3 month moving average median price is 2% ...

  Closed Transactions May 15-21 Except for Silverdale, the numbers indicate the market continues to strengthen. The single quick sale in Silverdale is an example of what happens when a home is priced well: the transaction closed in three weeks and brought an offer 5% over the list price. For the second straight week, Kingston was far ahead of last year's activity at this time. Poulsbo showed improvement in all categories. Bainbridge Island average sales price declined. If you'd like the selling details of the home that closed in your neighborhood,  just ask.

Closed Transactions March 8-14 The market remains sluggish except for Poulsbo. The numbers indicate that we are still in a strong buyer's market. Prices are generally lower than even last year. Expect increased activity as the tax credit deadline approaches. If you'd like the selling details of the home that closed in your neighborhood,  just ask.

Closed Transactions Feb 8-14   Significantly more activity this week in all four areas. Sales in Poulsbo and Kingston very fast, with sales prices nearly matching list prices. Bainbridge sellers are still apparently willing to wait a long time for their buyers.   If you'd like the selling details of the home that closed in your neighborhood,  just ask.

Closed Transactions: Jan 22-31, 2010  This was an interesting week. The number of sales this week matched last year's week, which is surprising. But even more surprising is that the selling time was significantly lower in Silverdale and Poulsbo--these buyers made choices more quickly. Selling prices were significantly higher this year in Silverdale, Poulsbo, and Bainbridge Island. And selling prices were very close to list price in Silverdale, Poulsbo and Kingston, suggesting that sellers are realizing something about the market.

My family celebrated my birthday recently, and so my oldest son, Ben Jacobson, made this fondant cake to commemorate the event. Knowing my love for sushi, he created an assortment of nigri and maki rolls using Swedish Fish, Fruit Roll-ups, Rice Crispies & Marshmallows, and donuts. There's a bowl of sticky rice (Rice Krispies & Marshmallows) and Soy Sauce (Chocolate Syrup), and some Wasabi & Ginger (frosting). ~     o     ~     o     ~     o     ~     o     ~     o     ~ Rich Jacobson is a licensed real estate professional providing knowledgeable empowerment and relentless representation for his clients of residential properties and vacant land throughout all of Kitsap County WA and portions of Pierce, Mason, and Jefferson Counties.
