francine viola: Olympia WA Real Estate Market Update Summer 2018 - 08/03/18 10:01 AM
What’s Driving this Hot Market?
The South Sound continues to set records in the housing market.  I’m often asked, “what’s next in store?”  (How long will this last?  What is the longer-term impact on our market?)
Forecasting is a tricky business, but we focus on many trends to anticipate things to come. 
One of those is regional home prices. Coming out of the recession, our market’s gains primarily came from a huge rush of pent-up demand from local buyers.  This pool of buyers is still robust.  However, going forward a big impact is coming from in-bound migration of buyers in search … (0 comments)

francine viola: Why should the REALTOR you hire be a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist? - 05/11/17 09:41 AM
Why should the REALTOR you hire be a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist?
With more than 1 million REALTORS working in the United States, only 3% have achieved their CRS credential.
Why is this important to you?
The more education I have, the better educated my clients are in their sale or purchase of their home.
The education and training that CRS offers to its members drill down on the details of key issues for buyers and sellers.
Earlier this month, I attended a 2-day CRS class in Olympia, WA.  This class was 16 hours of instruction on helping sellers achieve the best results when selling … (0 comments)
