Now that it is springtime in Kitsap County – more homes are being listed. We are definitely seeing an increase in short sale and bank owned homes. With short sale home transactions – you need a buyer who has the patience to hang in there. Short sales take can up to 6 months or more to close, and sometimes buyers will miss out on other homes that come on the market, if they aren’t careful. Bank owned homes transactions go a bit faster – but with both – it is almost impossible to get any repairs done – so they really are – an “as is” sale.
But we have some great homes in North Kitsap. One of my favorites is a waterfront home in Suquamish – that is amazing. It is has been lovingly maintained and was build in the 1960’s and is on the waterfront looking towards Seattle. Call me if you ever want to see it!
