Just 22 days into the new year of 2014 and everyone is asking, “Is now the right time to sell?” Historically, the Winter and Spring market is known for increasing inventory and a robust buyer’s market. But there is a lack of competition (AKA Listings) in Kirkland and many other Eastside neighborhoods which lead me to answer boldly: YES!
Every day I log onto the NWMLS and scour for new listings to show. And every Sunday at open houses I meet buyers and they are all asking me the same thing: “Where are all the houses for sale?”
There are just not enough homes on the market!
And who wouldn’t want to live here anyway? Last year I helped three out-of-state buyers relocate to our beautiful city.
Kirkland is a great place to live. I brag on my city as much as I can. Our Lake Washington view walks and sidewalk lined streets are highly desirable. Even the city encourages you with brightly posted signs to EXPORE!
Did you know there are 96 parks between Juanita to Yarrow Point?
These open spaces draw out the community and encourage a sense of pride throughout the city. Not to mention they are just pure fun and enjoyment.
My suggestion is, if you are thinking about selling, maybe it’s time to get an early start on the Spring market and list your home for sale now. Not later. It could really pay off!
Kirkland is beautiful year round. And if you are ready to make a big move, I can promise you there is a buyer just waiting to call Kirkland home.
