Bainbridge Island Washington Residential Sales for 2013

Buyers are competing for minimal inventory. We encourage sellers to meet this need and speed up their time frame for placing their homes on the market. As of 12/31/2013, only 73 residential units were available. As of this writing, we are below 70. 

Only 18 Condos are on the market. Down from over 240 during the crash. 

We have seen a 9% increase with 414 residential sales in 2013 versus 386 in 2012. Compare this to our peak market in 2005 where we saw 397 sales.

We encourage buyers to 1. Secure a Pre-Approval Letter (not a pre-qual) from a Lender in good standing with local real estate brokers.  2. Set yourself up online with a real estate “auto search” that presents new listings as they hit the market. 3. Work with a Broker who personally visits new inventory. 4. Ask your Broker to invite you to see homes on Brokers Tour.
