Are you searching for a Great Pumpkin House in Washougal, Washington? Good news, the housing market is prime for the picking. You can find your dream pumpkin house at such a great value that it's almost spooky.  Don't delay, because the best pumpkins houses are always the first to go! Don't miss out on your chance to get the top pick of the patch. 

Washougal Washington - Great Pumpkin House DealsPrices have softened since September of 2010, but the market statistics look surprisingly familiar. In fact, there were 244 active listings, 63 pending listings, and 28 solds last year in September. There's not much of a change.


What has changed in Washougal's housing market is the pricing. The average price of a house sold last year was $290,480. Compare that to this year's average price of $197,434 and you can see it's a buyer's market in this Gateway to the Gorge community.  The number of foreclosures and short sales has contributed to the pricing decline. However, this situation
won't last forever and prices will eventually start creeping up once again.


If you're in search of a great pumpkin house in Washougal, Washington - now is the perfect time to buy. Remember, just like pumpkins, the best houses are always the first to go.

I love the Halloween themed report and it made me smile even though I know what those numbers represent compared to just a few years ago.

It is a wonderful time for home buyers to take advantage of the attractive prices and the very low mortgage interest rates.

Have a great day and an outstanding weekend.  Be sure to have your camera in hand to capture those special moments.

Hey Debb...Ditto on the great creativity!  Even though the information is important, the average housing report doesn't actually inspire people to click on it.  Your Halloween theme is definitely a treat!

Monday is my Happiness Day.
I visit as many blog posts as I can during the day
and spread happiness, which means I probably didn’t read this post.
I just stopped by to spread some happiness.
Feel free to delete this comment if it doesn’t make you happy.

Happy Monday!

Debb--you "done it again, girl"...made a silk purse out of a sow's ear!  You could write great copy about ANYTHING I think. I sure love how your mind thinks. (I personally have a really hard time with these and since my market is so teensy, I just bypass it altogether).

Debb, I agree with Gayle. I just was thinking that there has to be a clever way to do market reports and I was wondering what it was....well here it is. How amazing you are. I just love it. It is so wonderful to be inspired. I think I'm ready to work on some market reports. I just have not been able to make myself. Thank you! Have a beautiful evening!
