Gig Harbor home prices continue to climb out of hole
Gig Harbor home prices are continuing to sustain moderately higher sales prices as 2009 closes out. December is the fifth of the last six months to show improvement year over year. Gig Harbor is defined as the Gig Harbor peninsula and Fox Island.
Gig Harbor home prices are up 1% over 2008, comparing the months of December only. The 4-county Puget Sound area however experienced a 7% decrease in sales price.
Another plus--sales of Gig Harbor homes have been better than 2008 for the last half year now-in each of those … (0 comments)

gig harbor home sales: Short sales small percent of Gig Harbor home sales - 01/08/10 03:44 AM
Short sales small percent of Gig Harbor home sales  National media hypes short sales and bank-owned properties as a large part of the market, but in Gig Harbor they represent a smaller portion of Gig Harbor home sales than the casual observer might think.

This compares to figures as high as 80% of all sales in Las Vegas and 50% in Phoenix and Southern … (2 comments)

Gig Harbor home sales follow western trend
Nationally home sales rose 21% and in the West 10% in October, compared to a year ago. Gig Harbor home sales were up slightly less--8% from 2008.
These numbers are certainly an improvement but October 2008 was a sobering sales month after the financial crises of AIG, Lehman, and others. November 2008 was even worse but this year Gig Harbor home sales are on track to beat 2008 by at least 25%.
 The median price is up in 98333 and 98335 from September, an improvement from the year-over-year figures. We are cautiously optimistic we … (0 comments)
