Windermere Real Estate/BI, Inc.
These days, the news related to the economy is generally doom and gloom. On the national level, things are still not good. However, in terms of real estate, the market is always a local one. Other real estate markets do effect ours, that is for sure. If I have a buyer from Las Vegas and they can not sell their house in Las Vegas, in order to buy one here, that effects the Bainbridge Island market. Real estate has always been a game of dominos. But, it is evident that the Seattle market has faired better than many like San Diego, Sacramento and Miami – all among the top ten worst markets for 2009. I found the numbers below related to the Washington Real Estate Market to be good news and we could all use a little good news!
