A Look at 2020 So Far…

The year 2020 will be seared into our memories forever.  Seattle-area real estate sales were off to a blazing start and then our lives took a dramatic turn with the declaration of a pandemic and the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order. I know all of you will have stories to tell about how these past four months have changed and challenged you.

Surprisingly, after a pause in late March and early April, the market showed great resilience in the single family homes category and currently multiple offers are a frequent happening in many neighborhoods and price ranges due to high demand, low inventory and amazing interest rates.  The condominium market has seen more volitle swings with the more recent protests adding a multiplier effect on the slowdown of condos in downtown Seattle and other in-city neighborhoods.

So many factors including stock market volatility, employment changes, trade war fears, elections, home schooling and buyer and seller’s emotional responses to all of the above is making for an unpredictable year so far.

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and finding ways to cope with our new and ever-changing reality.  Please reach out to let me know how you are doing.  Here’s a look at my business year to date including the sale of my own home (yes, we moved during the pandemic!).

A Look Back at 2019

As we prepare to start a new decade, I wish to acknowledge and thank all of my wonderful clients and friends for your continuous stream of business, referrals, friendship and support. I am honored to help my clients with such important transitions in their life.

The 2019 real estate market delivered great variety from fast-paced, frenetic behavior to slow downs in some segments.  Multiple offers subsided in the fall and buyers seized opportunities not experienced in several years, particularly in the condominium market. Many factors including stock market volatility due to trade war fears, elections, and buyer’s emotional responses made it an interesting and busy year!  December market activity suggests that 2020 will be an upbeat and active market.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my 2019 Sale History.  Cheers!

A Look Back at 2018

The 2018 real estate market delivered fast-paced, frenetic behavior and outcomes in the first five months of the year and then we witnessed a slow down with inventory increasing, multiple offers subsiding and buyers seizing opportunities not experienced in several years. The trends were unpredictable due to many factors including interest rate and stock market volatility, political actions — local and federal — and buyer’s lack of confidence and emotional responses. It was an interesting and busy year!

As we start the new year, I wish to acknowledge and thank all of my wonderful clients and friends for your continuous stream of business, referrals, friendship and support. I am honored to take care of so many people who trust me to help with such an important transaction in their life. Thanks for taking the time to look at my 2018 Sale History. 

Cheers!  Tamara Marson

Year-to-Date 2018…My Clients’ Sales and Purchases

The first half of 2018 has been fast-paced with frenetic behavior and outcomes.  However, by the end of May, we started to see a mild slow down with inventory increasing and in some cases multiple offers subsided.  The trends are unpredictable due to many factors including interest rate and stock market volitility, political actions — local and federal — and normal summertime distractions.

THANK YOU to all of my wonderful clients and friends for your continuous stream of business, referrals and support.  Please contact me if you’d like to discuss your plans for the future, or if you have any friends, family members or co-workers who may need my assistance.  Thanks for taking a look at Tamara Marson’s 2018 Sale History.
