Kirkland Condos Are My Jam!

I’m obsessed with Kirkland and selling some of the finest boutique waterfront properties in 98033 and 98034. I’m great at working with HOA’s and Property Management firms! This is where most agents get jammed up! Not me.

I live, work, and play in Kirkland! That’s why I go by @KirklandPeach

You can count on me to represent your sale with maximum strategy for your ROI. It’s not about a sign in the yard; half of these condos won’t even allow for signage! It’s about pricing and presentation!

6620 Lake Washington Blvd. “The Park” Sold.

What is the value of your condo? Let’s talk. Timing and strategy are everything. Let’s get real about your home value while the market is hot.

Does Moving Up Make Sense?

Ask yourself these 5 questions to help you decide if you have house fatigue and are ready for something newer or bigger or in a more desirable location:

  1. Has your income or financial situation improved? If you’re making more money, you may be able to afford higher mortgage payments and cover the costs of moving.
  2. Have you outgrown your neighborhood? For example, you may have realized that you hate your commute or your children might excel in a different school district.
  3. Are there reasons why you can’t remodel or add on? Sometimes you can create a bigger home by adding a new room or building up. But if your property isn’t large enough, your municipality doesn’t allow it, or you’re simply not interested in remodeling, then moving to a bigger home may be your best option.
  4. Are you comfortable moving in the current housing market? If your market is hot, your home may sell quickly and for top dollar, but the home you buy also will be more expensive. If your market is slow, finding a buyer may take longer, but you’ll have more selection and better pricing as you seek your new home.
  5. Are interest rates attractive? A low rate not only helps you buy a larger home, but also makes it easier to find a buyer.
Usually, you don’t build up much equity in the first few years of your mortgage, as monthly payments are mostly interest, but if you’ve owned your home for five or more years, you may have significant, unrealized gains.

OMG the market is HOT. So what does that mean?

People are saying…

Wow the market is so hot! You must be so busy!

Or

The market is so hot, we are going to have another bubble.

Or

I don’t want to buy in this market, it’s too hot.

hot market

Here are 3 things you should know about what a “hot” market means and how it affects buyers and sellers (and Realtors) differently.

1) Just because the market is hot, does not mean that Realtors are busy. Demand is WAY up and Inventory is WAY down. This means that Sellers have the advantage because there are not enough homes to meet the demand of the Buyers. Realtors work equally as hard in a “Buyers” market as they do a “Sellers” market but with emphasis in different areas.

Media focuses too much on one house that sells way to high. It freaks buyers out.

Media focuses too much on one house that sells way to high. It freaks buyers out.

2) Home prices are up, some houses…WAY up. Think of it like a flashlight. The headlines you read are putting extreme focus on hot areas like Bellevue, Seattle, Ballard, Sammamish, Kirkland, Redmond…places where there is ALWAYS demand. Most Sellers are happy to see values just starting to come back to 2005 and 2006 price ranges. Seattle is not facing another bubble.

Prices naturally stay "hot" in the urban core and spread out to the suburbs as the market heats us and prices go with it.

3) Waiting to buy does not save you money, it’s actually a risk that you will pay more, especially when interest rates go up. As homes sell at higher prices, it sets the new bar. This means that if you opt out to buy because you think you are contributing to the “hot” market, you will just risk paying more. Every home that sells is now that new “comp” for the next home that comes on the market. As the market heats up, every home in every area will eventually all go up in price.
