Home owners have been staying in their houses longer, primarily due to the changes in our national and local housing markets. There are still some common reasons for selling a home:
For the Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater area, job relocation is a common reason, particularly if your job is related to the military (also known as PCSing).
Changes in family such as marriages, births, and divorces
The home is too small...
and the opposite, downsizing from a larger to a smaller home.
One final reason is to avoid a foreclosure, which is known as a short sale.
Whether you are moving for work, family, a change of scenery, or need help with a short sale, the best advice is to make use of a qualified realtor to help with buying, selling, or even providing information about the market for renovations in a home, as many home owners are opting to improve and update their home ahead listing it.

"Cari helped us find our ideal home in Olympia in 2013. It took almost 6 months but she was very patient, helpful and insightful. 6 months! That was a lot of properties to drive to and see, a lot of houses in many different conditions. Cari never pushed a sale. She would just stand back and let us see things for ourselves, while being always there to answer questions or get answers for us. That, by itself, is invaluable help.
Now, in 2015, we were ready to sell and she helped us sell our house in record time. That meant the price she suggested was right on and the logistics she did (description, listing, flyers, marketing) superb. She also handled all the negotiations and other issues that arose, greatly reducing our stress levels. All the while, she was very professional and maintained her wonderful sense of humor through all the fray. She promised, she delivered, and we're very grateful"
