According to the RE/MAX national housing report, which is a survey of 53 metro areas, October sales were up 9.0% from last year. Most real estate brokers will tell you that as we settle in for winter and the Christmas holidays, that the market slows down. The RE/MAX CEO commented that she believed home sales are in line with levels last year and will hold up through the winter months.
On a local perspective, your friendly RE/MAX agents at servingwateam.com have been observing an increase in buyers looking and making offers, and houses that are listed being sold. In fact, the activity is more like real estate in the spring than real estate from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Good prices, motivated sellers, and incredibly low interest rates are part of the market here in the Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and Greater South Puget Sound area.

"Integrity, patience,and professionalism are words that describe Cari Schwisow. We were out of state buyers and Cari always went the extra mile for us. She previewed many homes for us, took countless photos and videos, which she sent to us for our approval, until we could find just the perfect home. Cari always followed thru every step in the purchase of our home. She kept in close communication with us, letting us know how every process of the sale was progressing. We will highly recommend her to our family and friends. It was a pleasure working with Cari"
