MERCER ISLAND’S POPULATION OF APPROXIMATELY 22,036 PEOPLE
LIVE IN APPROXIMATELY 8806 HOUSEHOLDS.
The question most asked me by Mercer Island residents is: “Has the Real Estate market stabilized yet?” Believe me, I would love to have a definitive answer for that. I can tell you that Island homes are selling again, including some that have been on the market for almost 2 years. I am working with both Mercer Island Buyers and Sellers. For the Buyers we’re finding amazing values compared to the price of homes here just a few years ago. It’s the perfect time to buy since you’ll be able to get so much home for the money (think view, waterfront, large lots, updated upscale homes with all the amenities, etc.) and you may be able to take advantage of the tax credit (not just for 1st time homebuyers) if you qualify – it’s found money. And if you’re concerned about having to sell your Mercer Island home in order to buy, just remember that “it is parallel”: If you sell for less than a few years ago, you’ll also be buying for so much less – with lower mortgage payments, great interest rates (while they’re still so low), and the bonus of the tax credit for those who qualify. And with my unique marketing skills, which will enhance the natural appeal of your home or condo, and “target marketing” to your buyer, selling will be an enjoyable experience. Spring is almost here! It’s time to make that move to the ideal property for you, your family, and your lifestyle (or that to which you would like to become accustomed). Please call or text or email me so we can get started on a game plan for you. And speaking of game plans, aren’t the Olympics amazing! Hope you’re enjoying watching them as much as we are!
