According to a recent Forbes.com article, homeowners in the Seattle area are dancing in the streets!
Why? Because the Seattle area is the Number One Best Housing Markets in the U.S.
According to data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the city's median home price in the 1st quarter hit $380,200, up a whopping 12.3% from a year earlier. And it's not just the Seattle area, but the entire Pacific Northwest Region as well. In Portland, Ore., prices jumped nearly 9% and the capitol city, Salem, it grew up over 15% in the same time period.
Today's weather here on the Kitsap Peninsula was yet another reason why many are flocking to our area. We nearly reached a rather unseasonal 90 degrees! It's days like today that make us Washingtonians quickly forget the long endless overcast days of constant drizzle.
Pretty soon, crabbing season will start up again, and many local boaters with take to the waterways of the Puget Sound, in search of the prized Dungeness Crab!
