Port Orchard WA Real Estate | September Homes Sold | Homes Sold in Port Orchard WA 2009

During the month of September there were 60 homes that sold in Port Orchard. These Port Orchard 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 Port Orchard Washington.

Not a bad time to purchase a home in Port Orchard, 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

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.
