Over the past few years, the communities in our area have experienced consistently high list-to-sale price ratios, often surpassing 100%. This meant that properties were frequently selling for more than their listed prices. However, in recent times, there has been a noticeable shift in the market as list-to-sale price ratios are now trending towards 100% or slightly lower, even dropping to around 90% in certain areas.
This suggests a potential slowdown or stabilization in the real estate market, where sellers are no longer able to command prices significantly higher than their initial listings. In summary, the area has transitioned from a period of exceeding list prices to one where properties are selling closer to their listed values, indicating a possible shift in market dynamics.
Considering this and other aspects of our fluctuating market, it is more important than ever to work with a trusted real estate broker with demonstrated skill, knowledge, and experience. With all of those qualifications and the backing of the only truly global real estate network, nothing compares to Marketplace SIR agents to best represent your investment.
I would love to help you discover what’s next for your real estate journey, please feel free to reach out to me any time!
In our local market, we’ve noticed an interesting trend: an increase in the Median Days-on-Market for the majority of communities. Let’s dive deeper into what this means and how it impacts buyers and sellers.
Median Days-on-Market is a crucial real estate metric that measures the time it takes for homes to sell. With the recent increase, it suggests that properties are staying on the market longer before finding a buyer in our area.
For sellers, this shift indicates the importance of strategic pricing, effective marketing, and making homes stand out in a competitive landscape. Understanding buyer preferences and working with experienced professionals can help navigate these changes and optimize the selling process.
Buyers, on the other hand, can benefit from the increased Median Days-on-Market. It provides them with more opportunities to explore available properties, negotiate favorable terms, and conduct thorough due diligence before making a decision.
At MSIR, we stay attuned to the local market trends. Our expertise in this evolving landscape empowers us to guide both buyers and sellers effectively, ensuring they make informed decisions that align with their goals.

Fall is the best time of year to prepare your game plan for both buying and selling. Our extremely competitive market here in the King, Snohomish, and Pierce county areas plateaus slightly during the fall and winter months. This is the PERFECT time to buy. Prices are down and sellers are much more motivated to sell this time of year, giving you more negotiating power. This is the time for you to get the best bang for your buck on any property purchase.
This is also the time of year all of my investors start buying those buildable lots! If you have been sitting on a property that would be an asset to a builder and thinking about this option for your property sale, call me!!! It is one of my specialties! Although you can list any time of year successfully,

Congratulations to my amazing investor client, on this successful sale. I was able to assist him with procuring this property, at the very last minute on a Thursday late evening. It closed the following Wednesday, in just 4 business days from start to finish!
It is a solid investment opportunity for him to either flip, re-build, or re-sell to another builder.
Either way, a win for him. He was so pleased.
A record sale!
A repeat client. who I adore working with and always makes my job a lot of fun, thanks Mr. G! Also thank you Mr. Koepf, my excellent co-agent out of BIG SKY SIR in Montana, for working together with me on this, any many other properties. You are a pleasure to work with and I think we make a great team!
Another thank you to Teresa Jamieson at WFG National Title and Escrow and her escrow and title teams.
They are always so phenomenal at getting the job done!
Excellent work team!
Thanks to both of you for trusting me to help you with your sale.
I always strive to do my very best in every property transaction for my clients. I go out of my way to assist them, try to always be available to them, to teach them and answer all their questions. Typically, I end up with life long clients and new friends from this process.
It always warms my heart when I get smiles, hugs and thank you’s.

I was surprised this morning to open my front door to a Fed Ex delivery driver. I was shocked again, when the box he had in his arms was in fact for me. One of my all time favorite client families had gone out of their way to have a Holiday gift delivered to my front door, as a thank you for my dedication to their family.
I was overjoyed and so touched. As if I could adore them any more than I already do!!!
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. W and kiddos!
I am very honored by your faith in me and your kind words.
I look forward to our future working together.
Thank you to all of my clients, team members, staff, and especially to the Shriner family, for allowing me the support and opportunity to become a success.
I am proud to represent such an amazing group of people here at MSIR.
Congratulations to my seller on this gorgeous custom built property sale!
I had the pleasure of helping my client sell this property twice! The first time, the original buyer backed out mere days before closing. However, I was able to procure my buyers earnest money for my seller, on that failed sale, and re-sell this property again in 3 days time for over asking price! It closed without a hitch and was our buyers dream home! I am proud to say, everyone is over joyed with the results. Working with my seller was the most fun I have had in ages, and I was proud to sell such a well built masterpiece for him.
Always make sure when you buy or sell a property, that you have a broker who will fight for you if things go awry. It is always my pleasure to do so and to ensure my sellers and buyers are protected. I deliver real time results that matter.
It was an absolute honor to be asked to assist dear family friends with the sale of their investment property. It means a lot when people trust you to help them with a sale. It means even more, when they are close friends. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I am so happy for their success. This property had a few hurdles to get to market, but thankfully I was able to help my clients expertly navigate around them with ease, and it closed without issue. Congratulations to both buyer and seller on this fantastic stand-alone dream condo.
This property was found while browsing through my inbox emails from one of my colleague connections. I recognized that it would be perfect for a dear friend who was searching for something just like it, in order to expand her quickly growing business. I had this property in front of her within minutes of discovering it, and met her onsite shortly thereafter. It was a successful match! I worked quickly, and fought hard to help her succeed in beating out all other offers on the table. After securing her next business location, it closed without issue and all parties were elated with the results. I was honored again to be asked by a friend to assist with such an important step in their lives. She was an absolute dream to work with, and It was my pleasure to help her business grow. All the best with your future successes my friend, with many more to come.

2017 was, yet again, a strong seller’s market! Our real estate continues to increase in price, keeping the Seattle metropolitan and its surrounding areas at the top of our Nations real estate markets. Experts agree that the shortage of inventory continues to create this result. Looking forward to 2018, this trend has shown no signs of changing in that respect. This abundance of savvy buyers are still looking, there simply is not enough out there for them to buy.
How does that translate to you as a homeowner?
Spring may still be peak home-shopping season, since most families want to move when the kids are out of school. Yet, it actually pays to list in the winter, when buyers tend to have more urgency: One study found that average sellers net more above asking price during the months of December, January, February, and March than they do from June through November, and homes listed in the Winter sold faster than those posted in the Spring.
That means: Now is the time to sell your home!
Buyers want to buy it and you should absolutely take advantage of that demand.
Not sure where you will go?
As a Sotheby’s International Realty agent, I can help you buy nearly everywhere in the world, not just locally. I will assist you with planning ahead, to ensure that new home transition is both smooth and effortless for you and your family.

At a record price in this Lochleven neighborhood.
