Bremerton WA Real Estate | November Homes Sold

During the month of November there were 84 homes that sold in Bremerton. That is 16 more homes sold than in October. Seems odd since the NWMLS has reported such a surge in October Puget Sound wide due to the then planned end date of the first time home buyer tax credit. These Bremerton homes actually had a transfer of home ownership. Contracts complete and Lender funds available the home buyer and seller signed all of their documents as escrow prepared the closing packages. Once all the I’s were dotted and the T’s crossed there where deeds recorded at the Kitsap County courthouse that transferred the property into the new home owner’s name!

If you want to learn more about how we transfer property in Washington State a really great site to visit is the Escrow Association of Washington site. There you can find definitions and explanations of the home buying process for Bremerton Washington.

Let’s look at those 84 Bremerton homes –

Average List Price

  • $215,012 [$203,933 in October]
  • $127 [$132 per sq ft in October]

Average Sold Price

  • $210,430 [$202,524 in October]
  • $125 [$132 per sq ft in October]

The average sq ft of these 84 Bremerton homes was 1732 sq ft. These homes spent an average of 96 days on the market (DOM). Down about 20 days from October

The list to sale ratio for these homes was 97.87 percent. What that meas is that buyers offered 97.87% of what the seller requested.

Not a bad time to purchase a home in Bremerton, Washington. In fact it is a great time if you are a 1st time home buyer and qualify for the $8,000 tax credit – CREDIT! NOT loan! Read the information I have written about the program here

It is finally official. The hombuyer’s tax credit has been extended to April 30, 2010

What do these numbers mean? Is it a good time to buy? Is it a good time to sell. It all depends on your individual situation. I would rather buy in a buyers market and I would rather sell in a buyers market if I have to buy another home with the proceeds. I am a fan of the NORMAL market – everyone can feel more comfortable and real estate transactions are not as stressful.
