February 2017 was the month home buyers fell in love with houses in Olympia WA!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Olympia WA

February 2017 was filled with love in Olympia WA as home buyers came out in the rain, sleet, snow and hail and purchased homes!




Many sellers in Olympia WA (in Thurston County) were wooed and pursued by several buyers who offered expensive purchase prices, took off their contingencies and proved their commitment by using a reputable local lender.  Yes, this market is sexier than a steamy romance novel!  Check out these record-breaking love connections:


February 2017 was THE February of all Februarys. 

Thurston County sold the most homes this February than all other Februarys with 294 sales.  The second closest year to this record was in 2006 with 288 sales. (Data gathered from the NWMLS.) 



And buyers continue to be optimistic.

Although there may be fewer choices for buyers than in the past over-saturated markets, they know that new listings are coming on the market.  They are waiting and ready to pounce when the right home comes up.


Many sellers are seeing good returns.

With fewer homes on the market and more demand, home prices continue to drive upward.  Homes sale prices are up about 9% from last year at this time!  What's not to love?!

Hi Francine

That's an impressive statistic, and hopefully bodes well for the rest of 2017, depending on rates and inventory! Hope some of these were yours!
