20 Year Anniversary

Today marks my 20th year with Windermere! To celebrate this milestone, I plan to spend some time in my neighborhood volunteering with King County Parks at this upcoming event: http://whitecenternow.com/2020/01/08/spend-your-mlk-day-of-service-at-dick-thurnau-park/

Throughout the years there have been many ups and downs in this career: a housing recession, housing highs, a marriage, my three babies, and a current divorce. Throughout it all… you have stayed current and devoted. Your trust, dedication, support, kindness, and friendship are most appreciated! Thank you so much for always being there for me, for lifting me up. I am dedicated to be of service to you, I am always here to help, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.

In gratitude,
Leah

Fall Update 2019

Technology goes a long way
…but closing a sale requires
Market knowledge
Experience
Skilled negotiation


Technology alone doesn’t close a sale.
Skilled negotiation is a critical component in all aspects of a successful real estate transaction. It begins with marketing a property and concludes with a closed sale. With more data available to consumers today, the concept of value is being redefined when choosing an agent. Let’s start a conversation and get the job done.

Sincerely,
Leah Pham, Managing Broker

September Market Snap 2019

METRO SEATTLE Real Estate Market Update

 

August 2019 statistics with % change from July 2019
Sold Listings: 726    down  -6%
Total Inventory: 1,203   down  -7%
Average Sales Price: $864,000    down -3%
Average Days on Market: 35   up +35%

Knowledge, communication, and partnership are key factors to a successful negotiation in Seattle’s market. In general, sellers have endured significantly different market conditions in the past, so their experiences are heavily influencing how they approach their real estate decisions today. Many buyers, on the other hand, have specific objectives in achieving their real estate dream, not motivated by past experiences. Your goals are the priority. Let’s get to work.

End of July 2019 Market Snap

METRO SEATTLE Real Estate Market Update

July 2019 statistics with % change from June 2019
Sold Listings: 756     -1%
Total Inventory: 1,296     -10%
Average Sales Price: $892,000      
Average Days on Market: 26     +13%

Buyers have very specific expectations on what they are looking for, a combination of condition, location/lifestyle and price are all required.

Sellers’ objectives have centered on price and they are beginning to understand that buyers’ definition of value is much more. The complexity between buyers and sellers is the result of different experiences and expectations.

With online data, media coverage, family & friends all providing different perspectives on the market, buyers and sellers are succeeding by utilizing experienced professionals to sift through the voluminous data available.

Knowledge, communication and partnership are critical components of today’s real estate market. I know your goals are unique. Let’s start a conversation.

Sincerely,
LEAH
