The Pullman WA Real Estate Market in December!

snow flakeAs the year is drawing to an end, and the Holidays are right around the corner, you would think our real estate market here in Pullman Washington would of come to a dead halt.  I can't speak for other Realtors®, but I know I continue to be working at a good pace.

Saturday we had quite a snow storm here in Pullman.  It came down pretty fast and furious.  I spent Saturday morning showing homes to a brand new first time home buyer.  It was snowy, but lots of fun.  We had a great time.  Saturday afternoon I spent showing homes to some folks who are considering moving into a little bigger home here in Pullman.  By the end of the day I was beat, but it was a good kind of tired for sure!  

People often think that our real estate market here in Pullman is a seasonal one.  In some respects that is true as people tend to move into and out of town around the Washington State University school schedule.  But with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories hiring all year round, and renters moving into purchasing homes,  as well as sellers thinking of buying a larger homes, the market continues to move along.  Not at the pace of Spring, but it is certainly still active.  Buyers see that values are great and that interest rates can't stay down forever so they are braving the winter elements and looking.

And believe me, the folks that are looking now in spite of snow and all the other adverse weather conditions are serious buyers.  And that is music to any seller's ears.  So Mr. & Mrs. Seller....keep that home tidy and ready for that show!  We might be calling soon to schedule a showing!

Lori: I am so happy to hear the market in Pullman is moving along at a pretty good clip. Even in the snow! Have a wonderful holiday, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Good for you to be busy this time of year Lori.  I have more in the pipeline this winter than I did last year, and I think that momentum just builds.  I don't know if I'd be so cheerful in the snow while showing property.  We never get it here, so that would be very unusual to experience.  And I think those vacant houses are cold!
