It was a very good February, doubling last year’s four sales, and there was a nice spread in price range. If you’re curious, a “Sold-Unlisted” property is just that; an arrangement between a Buyer and a Seller, conducted through their individual Brokers, hopefully by the rules. The home is not listed on the Northwest Multiple Listing Service for other Brokers to show or compete. However, the sale is reported for statistical tracking, after the close of Escrow.

The Elephant Representing BUYERS & SELLERS!

Of course, January started off slow as not many homes go into Escrow during November and December. February and the Ides of March changed the story. Again, there was a nice spread of prices ranging from just over $500K to well over the Million Dollar mark for a pleasing golf course home and location near the club. I like to see nice transitional step up from sale number one to sale number 10, with no big gap in-between. It shows a healthy market vs. sales of primarily the entry level homes or those priced for the seemingly wealthy. Everyone gets what they want. Most of us live in the heart of the boulevard. Last year, we had more of the top and bottom which created a rocky middle of the road for some.

Elephant Observations

Rocky Road was mentioned earlier. Maybe there’s a reason that it’s my favorite flavor of ice cream. I seem to be at my best when times are the hardest. Many of you are the same. We get creative, think outside the box and make it happen; more yet, we help those in need. It’s been said, “success happens when preparation and opportunity cross paths.” Perhaps, this whole thing is part of my big move to Compass and there was a bigger picture than I imagined. “Home” has never meant so much to us and Compass has provided me excellent tools to assist you in getting from one to the next safely. If you had plans, there’s no need to cancel them. Keep your trunk up! Elephants can carry a heavy load. In the meantime, stay positive, stay healthy and stay “Home”.

That’s a wrap for 25% of the year. Let’s keep that 2020 Vision! Thanks for reading. We appreciate it.
