NOTICE OF VALUES: IN YOUR MAIL BOX,
Clark County Washington.
HERE WE ARE JULY 2012, in Clark County, Vancouver Washington, and the new county NOTICE OF VALUES are arriving in our mailboxes! What most of us are seeing is PAINFUL!
I have received numerous inquires about home values this week and I have a few tools and some information that may be helpful! They are below. What I will tell you is the county Notice of Value is generated on sales of homes in 2011. Most of us, who are in the trenches every day helping Buyers and Sellers, have noticed is the CHANGE IN AVAILABLE INVENTORY… its LOW.. This is beginning to put upward pricing pressure on MOVE IN READY, and available homes.
The trend lines in the MARKET SNAPSHOT, are beginning to show signs of positive change over the last 120 days. Take a deep breath, the Notice of Value is looking BACK not foreward……..
in general. A healty LOCAL economy is essential!!
