spokane realtor: September 2021 Spokane WA Real Estate - 09/19/21 07:49 AM
Greetings from Spokane WA.
The market statistics in September, reflecting back on Aug. 2021 shows the historically enormous % of our average home price as up by 27.4%  over Aug. 2020.
The demand is just far too much for the available supply of homes. 
I am seeing less offers per listing, reflecting the fact that more buyers tend to be out in the Spring. When people ask " how is the market?" it is important to note that each price range could vary on answers, so digging a little deeper on the neighborhood, price range is key.
The Spokane area continues to get a lot … (0 comments)

spokane realtor: May 2021 Spokane WA. RED HOT MARKET! - 06/11/21 06:14 PM
Greetings from BethAnn in Spokane. You hear it all around the country, not enough homes for sale, but here in Spokane it is a real crisis ! We had 224 homes on the market, we could sell 2000! (Literally ).
I am stunned at the level of interest in my HOME TOWN ! I clearly recall the days when people from bigger cities and other areas poked fun at us "Spokanites". Now it seems everyone wants to live here! The quality of life, natural beauty and 4 distinct Seaons is a real draw to our area. 
I have never known a better time … (6 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane WA " The countries most competitive market" - 02/18/20 01:20 PM
My home town of Spokane WA has just been named as " the most competitive market in the nation " according to an article on Redfin's blog by chief Economist Daryl Fairweather.
As a lifelong resident- and REALTOR who works with both locals and many people relocating into my city, I can attest to this. 
What looks like numbers and data on paper, affects peoples real lives while I work with them. While sellers are ecstatic about what price their home may bring, they are concerned about being able to find their next home in this thick competition. Buyers /buyers agents must be hyper … (0 comments)

spokane realtor: 2019 Spokane, WA Real Estate Market Overview - 01/21/20 02:19 PM
2019 Spokane, WA.  Real Estate Market Overview, by BethAnn Long RE/MAX Inland Empire in Spokane Wa.
Below you will find the year end (2019 ) statistics for our market here in Spokane.
What seems to stand out the most, besides the above normal annual appreciation, is the lack of inventory ( number of homes for sale ). We have LESS THAN a one month supply of homes. ouch. This is one factor that is driving prices upward, another is the extreme interest in our area, which has not slowed down.
As a life long resident of Spokane, and Realtor with 17 years of experience, I … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane WA neighborhood tours ; Audubon & Downriver - 08/03/19 07:41 AM
Welcome back to my 2019 Summer Spokane WA Neighborhood tours! This weeks tour is the beautiful 99205 neighborhood known as Audubon Park, also often referred to Audubon/Downriver because of the close proximity of Audubon Park and Downriver Golf course.
This darling area is very popular because of its character, vintage homes, and local shops and restaurants.
The proximity to the VA hospital is a plus for many people when considering Spokane neighborhoods, and Audubon/Downriver is just moments to the VA Hospital.
Downriver golf course is a great course, very scenic and just a few moments NW of downtown Spokane.
Home prices in this area average at about … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane Wa. June ( for May ) 2019 Real Estate Statistics - 06/10/19 05:16 PM
Hey, it's "BethAnn in Spokane" with the latest Spokane Wa. June 2019 Real Estate Statistics!
Closed sales are down 13.1% when compared to May of 2018. Clearly, the lower inventory (number of homes for sale ) is a factor here. Buyers are having a challenge finding homes, especially under 300K , and often have to be patient. 
Both average and median home prices are up over 10% from last year at this time. We seem to have a very steady influx of  out of town people moving into the area, and this seems to a be a trend that will continue based on interest in … (3 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane WA 2018 Real Estate Year end Review - 01/26/19 12:47 PM
Spokane WA 2018 Real Estate Year end Review , By BethAnn Long, REALTOR w/ RE/MAX Inland Empire .
2018 was an epic year for me in Spokane Real Estate.  I worked with exactly half sellers and half buyers throughout the year, making it a great balance. When the dust settled the numbers showed that I was in the top 1% of all individual Spokane Realtors for 2018, which was an honor. I enjoyed working with several people relocating to Spokane WA, as well as family and friends !

spokane realtor: Nov. 2018 Spokane WA Real Estate Report - 11/11/18 07:31 AM

The Spokane Wa. Real Estate statistics are out for Oct. 2018.  Going into the final quarter of this year, we see that the average price is up about 12% since one year ago. This is a very hefty number- and shows the market has recovered from the famous 2008 crash. We can't predict what 2019 will bring, however with the growing, consistent interest in people from outside the area relocating to Spokane, it seems logical to think we will remain stable. Looking back at the year so far I have worked with a healthy mix of first time home buyers, people wanting … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: June 2018 Spokane WA Real Estate Market Update ! - 06/13/18 06:44 PM
June 2018 Spokane WA Real Estate Market Update !
The Spokane Wa Real Estate Market is ON FIRE. Although there is a marked lack of inventory ( homes for sale ) there are more active buyers than ever. This creates competition in most price ranges ( the lower the price range, the more competition).
It is more important than ever to have proactive, experienced representation in selling and buying homes. With the fast paced market, mistakes can be made. Hasty decisions can come back around to burn you. 
In some instances sellers are becoming almost a bit greedy, and buyers are becoming somewhat desperate, making … (4 comments)

spokane realtor: Why are people are Relocating to Spokane WA ? - 03/25/18 04:33 PM
Why are people are Relocating to Spokane WA?
As a lifelong resident of Spokane, WA. I would like to speak to the fact that Spokane WA is the number ONE city in the USA according to Realtor.com where the inbound/outbound ratio is the highest. What does this mean ? At the time of their study which was published (3/1/18)  by Sabrina Speianu, Economic Analyst with realtor.com states:
"In Q4 of 2017, Spokane had a very high ratio (2.8), which means it received 2.8 times more views from residents of other metros looking at Spokane properties compared to Spokane residents looking at properties in … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Defining Questions and Guidlelines When Looking for Home - 04/06/17 11:13 AM
Defining Questions When Looking for Home are as important to the Buyer as they are their Realtor.
If you take just a little time to prepare well and answer some important questions, your process will be much smoother and more satisfying when looking for a home.  Seeing " more " homes is not necessarily as good as seeing less of the right homes. In fact, in my experience it is critical to carefully weigh many defining questions prior to looking at someones private home.
I have seen many ( many ) times when buyer clients seem to think they should view several homes prior … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane Real Estate Market Stats Dec. 2016 ! - 12/13/16 05:09 PM
WOW. All  I can say is, buyers are buying, even though they have 25% less choices ( listed homes for sale ) than last year at this time. This truly speaks to the increase in numbers of serious buyers, and the fact that sellers have an advantage because there are not enough homes for sale in the Spokane area! 
My year has been steady, and I am so thankful to have such amazing clients and such a great pool of lenders, title companies and closers to help make selling a home in Spokane WA a good experience. Although the number of people … (1 comments)

spokane realtor: Spokane Real Esate Market Forecast 2017 ! - 11/23/16 03:15 PM
Spokane Real Estate Market Forecast 2017 !
Well, if the truth be told, I cannot predict what 2017 will bring for the Spokane Real Estate Market or anything else for that matter - But, after 13 years of experience, I have a gut feeling.
2016 brought a record number of " sales/transactions " over al l- however, we had a noticeable lack of sellers/listings when compared to the year before. This is curious. Here is something you may not know: 
In general, historically -about 50% of homes listed for sale in Spokane WA.  NEVER SELL. WHAT???  So why isn't there enough homes for sale in Spokane ?  You see, … (2 comments)

" When Winter Comes Again " an original song by Yours truly...
I wanted to share with you a song I wrote a few years back after a very difficult season of loss, illness and hardship in my life.
I was inspired to tell a bit of my story by the crisp morning air early this morning when I opened the door to let the dogs out and get the newspaper.  It hit me like a brisk slap in the face... here she comes again... Winter. 
It's ironic , as a lifelong resident of Spokane WA. for some reason I have come full circle … (7 comments)

spokane realtor: Why Fall is an optimal time to sell your Spokane Home! - 08/27/16 02:34 AM
Why FALL is an optimal time to sell your Spokane Home!
Why IS Fall an optimal time to sell your home in Spokane WA ?
If you look at the statistics of Spokane Home Sales, you will see they peak in the late Spring, and then again in the Fall.  While the Spring homes sales in Spokane WA might be more in numbers, there are a significant number of transactions that occur between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. People love to get " settled before the Holidays " . Each Season in Spokane brings it's own reason to buy and sell. 
There is something truly … (2 comments)
