Our local real estate market is unique and we know that we can’t depend on Seattle real estate news to have a thorough understanding of what’s going on and what to expect here. That’s why Marla Heagle, owner and REALTOR®, prepares a hyperlocal report every month. This in-depth look at the Stanwood and Camano Island market includes key statistics, like listings sold by price point or the number of days on the market, and empowers our agents and our clients with the most up-to-date and relevant information.
March 2020 Market Insights
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to shape our lives and our economy, but we will continue to work tirelessly to help our clients move their lives forward during these uncertain times. Our homes are more important than ever before – providing tangible value while the stock market fluctuates, and acting now as our shelters, schools, offices, gyms, and more as we all take steps to curb the spread of COVID-19.
A quick look at the numbers shows that market conditions still seemed to favor sellers in March, which is common this time of year with limited supply and high demand. Pending sales decreased as expected but average sales prices are up over last year in both Stanwood and Camano Island. We’re also adapting our business practices to keep our clients and our team members safe at this time. According to the Governor’s order, real estate brokers are able to take new listings and send contracts electronically, and arrange for appraisals and inspections to be conducted as needed. Realtors® are also allowed to show listings with strictly limited group sizes, and we’ll continue to implement best practices to keep all parties safe.
