Washington in the Top Five Priciest Places to Live

washington_90Home prices continue to go up with costs in Bellingham to Spokane soaring faster than we have ever seen before! Mike Rosenburg, of The Seattle Times writes “home prices are rising faster than in any state in the country — the first time that’s happened in a quarter-century…surpassing its pre-recession peak for the first time.” Peter Orser, director of the University of Washington’s Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies also adds, “We’ve all talked about Seattle, but I’m starting to see the overflow — people are starting to make different decisions and trade-offs in pursuit of affordability.”

According to useful data provided by the data firm CoreLogic, “Washington prices are growing at a rate nearly double the national average, and beating out second-place Oregon (up 10.3 percent) and third-place Colorado (up 9.5 percent).” What isn’t surprising is that Washington draws a large population of people, especially millennials, by it’s mix of both urban and scenic outdoor activities, as well as the relatively slow rate of new homes being built in Washington.

It may not be a bad time to list your home considering the trends that are seen in Washington! For more information on home prices, visit the Seattle Times and don’t hesitate to contact one of our agents at (360)733-3030.

Finding a home priced under $300,000 is much more challenging to do today than ever before.

This price range of homes up for sale has become almost eliminated in Bellingham as inventory continues to decrease, prices increase, and fewer new homes are being built. Furthermore, this trend seems to be spreading across the whole nation; studies show a five percent increase in home prices compared to the earlier year. Dave Gallagher of The Bellingham Herald adds, “The median price for the middle third of homes on the market topped $300,000 for the first time in March and in April hit $303,400. Homes in that middle tier locally appreciated 6.7 percent in April compared to April 2015. The lowest priced tier increased 5.2 percent. The upper tier increased 6 percent, according to the report.”

Lylene Johnson of The Muljat Group, uses the data to underline the impact these changes had on Whatcom County homes; including the “disappearance of the under-$300,000 home in Bellingham.”

A lack of new construction homes also plays a big role in home prices, which helps make the market less competitive than before.

“As home values rise, it could actually lead to further tightening of inventory. In a traditional market, some families will buy their first home, live in it for several years and build equity before moving into a more expensive home,” says Gallagher. Today, instead of moving up homes, families are not putting their houses up for sale while choosing to remodel; leading to a smaller inventory and higher prices on the homes that are available to buy.
