Bainbridge Island Real Estate Market Report: February 2022
Are the Headlines Right? Is the Sky Falling?
Is there a significant amount of uncertainty, anxiety, stress and worry facing all of us today? Of course there is, yes. Home buyers are taking on a heavy load under extreme competition, as are home sellers who need immediate access to equity for their next purchase.
At the end of the day, news headlines often promote fear because they need your clicks, and fear sells. From war to inflation to interest rates, there's plenty for them to sell.
Don't buy it.
My approach is to always focus on the silver lining as it helps balance one's perspective.
If you are seeking peace in the process, ways to maximize your home's value, a competitive rate on a mortgage, or would benefit by making an all-cash offer, there are ways to find it.
No, the sky is not falling. Today, more than ever, enormous problems need immense solutions. If your needs in the world of real estate require some creative problem solving, please let me know.
I'd be delighted to brainstorm with you.
P.S. Sharing the love of a recent client.
Jason came recommended by one of his colleagues and our initial exchanges with him were upbeat. We were dealing with a complicated mess of a situation, post-flooding, and he helped break a complicated process down into manageable steps. No matter how many obstacles we encountered, Jason’s good cheer, competence, and clear communication were all unflagging. He did a thorough job of tracking the market and communicated clearly his thoughts.
It's hard to overstate how much support we needed dealing with the logistics of preparing the house to sell in the midst of the pandemic and with myriad challenges and setbacks, from a flooding bathroom to the death of my father; Jason always helped us get our arms around our objectives, worked with contractors and subcontractors--in many cases running interference with them on our behalf.
The simplest way to say it is this: the fact that Jason personally did dump runs for us in the days before the house closed… can't get more hands-on than that!
