This is a Pierce County market update that you can rely on every 3 weeks coming to you from me, CJ Stewart with the key2see Team! My focus is on the ever-changing real estate market in Pierce County. You can rely on this blog to show you our market's statistics and developing economical and housing information as it pertains to buying or selling a home in our wonderful area.
The average sales price had a slight increase over the last three weeks as expected. We are forecasting home values in the south Puget Sound to continue to appreciate but at a slower rate than the previous ten years. We are expecting for this appreciation to continue depsite any economic changes in the coming years.
Our highest luxury sale this month was actually out of Buckley! Described by the listing agent as:

Again, average days on market hovering just above ten days. This number has slowly been rising the last few months and we beleive this is due to rising interest rates. The amount of Buyers in certain price points is going down. So we are seeing less offers on homes, resulting in less of a Buyers frenzy and lower days on market.
