Real Estate Market Report for Vancouver WA January 2011

Homes For Sale in Vancouver WA  See More Healing and Hope...

Real Estate in Vancouver Washington has been going through a lot of healing in the past 12 months. This January the Pending sales decreased by 97 units (-4.6%) when compared with January 2010; and the Sold homes were off 42 units. -- reflective of the busier activity last year from the now-expired Home Buyer Tax Credit.  This year there are no Gimmicks to keep buyers in play, just back to the basics of supply and demand, and buyers that know this is an excellent time to make a home purchase!

For the single-family houses and condos for sale that went pending in January, we saw both the Short Sales and the Bank Owned Homes segments capturing a smaller percentage at 48%; a welcome decrease from last month's 61.0% of the total Pending Sales.

Portland or, even Seattle to the north. For home prices to start going up, we will typically first see a meaningful AND sustained increase in the number of homes purchased in both Vancouver and the other major Pacific Northwest cities. Although there had been modest levels in home buying activity for the early part of this year, we are continuing to see the seasonal lower volume and softer prices at this time of the year.
