I know, the one hour time difference has every body crazy for at least a week. Even if I go to bed earlier than I used to, I still wake up an hour later than I usually did. Drives me nuts!!! But, I do like the hour of extra sunshine in the evening. I’m really looking forward to it still being light at 9pm while I’m on the golf course! So yes, I’m springing into Spring…and looking forward to everything that Spring has to offer. As well as more inventory. It’s been a rough haul for the buyers who’ve stuck through the winter trying to find a home on Vashon. It seemed as soon as a home came on the market, it was snatched away before anyone had even a chance to look at it. With the onset of more inventory, I’m really hoping that things will stay on the market a little while longer and everyone will have an opportunity to, at the very least, view the home once! I do think interest rates will rise, but I don’t think they will raise higher than 6% so I believe it will remain a Seller’s market for the time being. If you are a buyer, the best advice I can give you is don’t lose the faith. Keep plugging away until the home of your dreams comes along and when it does, be ready to act. Be pro active with the preapproval process and think about getting that home pre-inspected so that if you do put an offer in, you can do so without an inspection contingency. It is going to be a hot summer, hopefully not just in the housing market but the temps as well!!
