On the front page of last Sunday's edition of "The Olympian" newspaper was the following article about the recent drop in Thurston County's home sale prices. According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, March 2008 home sale prices have dropped 1.7% in Thurston County compared March 2007. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a very minor drop in prices, occurring after years of continual price expansion. An adjustment of this dimension is the smallest of any county in Washington. Except for Grant County, every county in Washington showed higher home value depreciation in March; several in the double digits. Another thing to take a look at are the home values as (2 comments)
