As soon as you pull in the driveway, this home’s neat, classic exterior design greets you.

You might decide to keep things as is (it’s lovely already, after all!) and enjoy laid-back evenings roasting s’mores around the fire pit and tending to the blossoming gardens that are already there. Or, you might decide to extend the raised garden bed area and raise rows and rows of fresh produce, add in a play toy for little ones, or create a deck/patio area for entertaining. There’s truly room for it all!

If you've never visited the DQ (Data Quick) News website, you should take time to do so! This gem of a site develops a quarterly report that allows you to find some great data specific to your neighborhood's zip code. It will answer questions like "how much has the median value for homes appreciated/depreciated compared to the same quarter a year ago?", and "what's the percentage of change (down or up) in sales volume in my neighborhood compared to the same quarter a year ago?" For example, in my South Hill Puyallup neighborhood where the zip code is 98374, DQ News (Quarter 2) reports that the median sales price is $224,475, which represents a 7.4% increase over the same quarter in 2012. Sales volume of homes is up 29.2% over this same quarter last year. This is great evidence that the market is appreciating. Sellers, the message is now is a great time to sell, if it's an appropriate time for you. Buyers, the bottom of the market has come and gone – if you are serious about purchasing a home, now's a great time to move forward!
Have you heard? Rates are at an all-time low again, this time in the 3's! Attached is a chart that provides evidence of current historic rates. For buyers, this means you can buy a little more house or it may mean that you can save a few dollars if you stay at your chosen shopping price. But don't delay – inventory continues to shrink and sales volume is rising. The good news for sellers is that this means you can "dig your heels in" a bit and hold to your asking price (provided it's in the range of where you will appraise). But negotiate wisely, as appraisal value doesn't always match market value. Let the negotiating fun begin!
I have been surprised and delighted to receive comments from readers thanking me for sharing statistics in a reader-friendly manner, plus requesting that I keep the updates coming. OK, so here are Trendgraphix April stats for Puyallup: for short sales, there are 127 active short sales, 24 pending shorts and only 9 closed sales in April. This is a measurable decrease in all short sales categories, particularly the closed transactions. Not sure why, but I will be investigating. Bank-owned stats stayed pretty similar, i.e. foreclosed properties are selling quickly! April shows more traditional sale homes listed – very typical for this time of year – and fewer pendings than the previous month, fewer closed sales for traditional sale properties. I found that surprising, since the market remains busy and I, on a personal note, have closed mostly traditional sales (versus shorts or bank-owned sales) this past month.
