Well, let's just say that 2012 was the end of the bottom of the market. This boat is beginning to float! By the numbers, average sales prices were up 7.19% over 2012 and the total number of sold homes was up 18.6% over 2012 on the Coeur d'Alene MLS. Hip hooray! Market recovery is here to stay!
While these numbers are not as dramatic as in some other parts of the country, they also don't take into account the resurgence of commercial construction, which is indicative of greater long-term stability. A gradual upswing helps keep homes more affordable.
The Spokane market shows a more modest price increase of 3.6%, but a 22% increase in the number of homes sold.
I offer you my sincerest wishes that this New Year brings you joy, comfort, and plenty of new opportunities! I would also like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my clients for the support they have shown me in the past, and I look forward to helping you and your friends with all your future real estate needs.
May you and your family enjoy a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
God bless your 2014!
Magdalena & Victoria, my very junior assistants,
wish you all a merry 11th Day of Christmas!
