san juan Island No one knows the San Juans like ... San Juan Island Real Estate

Real Estate Matters! When was the last time you heard any bad news about real estate? Almost every news agency is reporting more sales, increasing property prices, lower interest rates, decreasing “shadow” or bank-owned inventory and even multiple offers for sellers. We have seen all of these happen on our Island within the past six months. In our Windermere office, we have experienced more than a 60% increase in dollar volume of sales and a 70% increase in number of transactions this year over last. More people are visiting this island and more are deciding to stay here. Since July 2011, we’ve sold nearly 25% more homes here than our closest competitor. We’ve represented more sellers and sold their homes in less time than anyone else. Our real estate professionals are working harder as all this activity suggests. Yet they still take time to stay up-todate with weekly statistical reviews and monthly training sessions. Whether you’d like to know about the last few foreclosures available on the Island, how close to the tax assessed value homes are selling for or what the “odds” are for your property to sell for a certain price in a certain time, the local experts in our office can tell you. Call or come by our Friday Harbor office and see the good news for yourself!
