If you are like many homebuyers you may be concerned that if you decide to pull the trigger and purchase that you will be paying too much and that this bubble will burst again like it did in 2007.  I am hear to tell you that although there is no crystal ball, our home values had taken such a beating that we are now just above where we were in 2006 and have plenty of room to appreciate from here.

For Example: Let's say at the height of the market your home was worth 500,000 dollars.  If your home appreciated just 5 percent (pretty standard appreciation) from 2008-2016 your home would now be worth $775,664 - See below for the breakdown

KIRKLAND, Washington (Jan. 6, 2015) - Real estate brokers around Western Washington reported a strong finish to 2014. December's sales outpaced the same month a year ago by double digits, according to new figures from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

"December was one of the best Decembers on record," observed J. Lennox Scott, chairman and CEO of John L. Scott Real Estate upon reviewing the latest statistics from the listing service.

MLS members reported modest year-over-year price gains (about 5.5 percent) for homes and condominiums that sold last month compared to 12 months ago.
