Living Green Olympia: May 2012

Well....We Haven't Seen THAT For a While!

For the last several months, it has been evident that most days we are seeing more homes go pending than new ones being listed in the Olympia, WA area real estate market.  And you know what they say about supply and demand....if demand exceeds supply, those prices are going to start going up.

Well, I have noticed a new pattern that I sure haven't seen for years - several builders are doing price INCREASES on the new homes they are building in a couple of different neighborhoods!  So much for expecting prices to drop lower and lower - the builders have been pretty conservative, but obviously are feeling confident that the buyers are ready and willing to buy.

Sure haven't seen price increases for a while - but here they come!
