Vibrant Seattle is a sporadic but fun eNewsletter from April Rauch with information about real estate, local happenings, and fabulous events.

Will we see an increase in listings in 2015?
That is the million dollar question. If not, then we might see builders go into overdrive in an attempt to address pent up housing demand.
By the end of 2015, the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage is expected to rise to right around 5%.
We expect to see local home prices continue to appreciate in 2015, but at somewhat slower rates that are more sustainable over the long term. However, it is possible that price growth may continue to escalate faster than anticipated, even if we see the number of homes for sale increasing, if a higher proportion of those homes coming to market are high-end homes.
May the luck o' the Irish bless you in 2015!

2015 has kicked off to an active start in Seattle real estate. Still a shortage of listing inventory is continuing to create a multiple offer environment (particularly on "cream puff" perfect homes). In my real estate world I am seeing more cash offers than ever in my 18 years with Windermere. And with our local job market surging, rents rising, and interest rates still incredibly low, I'm seeing a LOT of renters take the plunge to own their first home.
Here is what the Seattle Times had to say about our current real estate market last week:
King County home prices up 6% from a year ago

Text or call me if you're in the Green Lake neighborhood and would like to catch up on a loop around the lake.
To continued health & happiness & FUN in 2015!
