In North Idaho, Year-To-Date number of sales is up 11.9% over 2011, while YTD number of listings is down 9.2%!

More sales + smaller inventory =  more competitive market.

While the average sales price is up 3.78% YTD, this is because more pricy homes are selling, not because average homes are selling for more.

In Spokane, numbers are similar, with YTD sales up over 12.1% from last year, while inventory is down 10.8%.

With incredible interest rates, it is still a great time to invest, but we are seeing multiple offers and quick sales on the bargains.

Worried about the Obamacare 3.8% tax? Ask for a copy of a report to be mailed to you, and consult your accountant.

We count our blessings (including plentiful water but no hurricanes) and pray you have a blessed Advent!
