 “Is now a good time to sell?” An Olympia home is never put up for sale on a whim. Although outside events can conspire to control the timing of that kind of major real estate venture, in most cases, the sale or purchase of a home happens on a timetable the Olympia buyer or seller thoughtfully wo...
