Are You Ready To Race?

Join Me at the Stanwood Camano Soapbox Derby 2019

This Saturday June 15th, at the Arrowhead Ranch the 12th Annual Soap Box Derby will kick off at 9 am.    Check out the Soap Box Derby website for more details!

If you’ve never experienced the All-American Soap Box Derby before, fasten your seat belt… you’re in for a ride! The Soap Box Derby is a family-friendly competition for children age 7-17. Derby racers work with a mentor (usually a parent or grandparent) at weekly build clinics to build their car, then after weeks of preparation, racers compete at the Windermere Stanwood Camano Soap Box Derby on Father’s Day weekend in hopes of making it to the FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby World Championship Race in Akron, Ohio!

Our Windermere office supports the Soap Box Derby – we will be there volunteering our time for this great community event.

Please stop by, watch some racing and visit with me, I’d love to see you!

February Market Stats for Our Area

Continued Evidence of a Balanced Real Estate

Market in Our Local Area

(*Source Windermere Stanwood Camano)

As we dive into 2019 in Stanwood and Camano Island, we are continuing to see signs of a balanced real estate market. These three points were taken from Matthew Gardner’s economic forecast last month, and are ringing true in our local market:

1.  Single Family home prices will rise in 2019, but the rate of growth is trending lower.

Area 2019 Price Forecast
Camano Island +5.7%
Stanwood +7.5%
Snohomish County +5.6%

In January 2019 compared to January 2018, we have seen year over year price growth of .5% on Camano island and 2% in Stanwood. As the year continues, that number is likely to increase.

2. Regional economic growth will still drive housing demand.

3.  The big story for 2019 will be the ongoing move towards a balanced market.

We have seen this move towards a balanced market in our January numbers for Stanwood and Camano Island.  As we reported last month, Camano Island had 2.6 months supply of inventory (MSI) at year end and at the end of January it rose to 3.4 months.  Stanwood had 3.7 MSI at year end and is now 5.1. A true balanced market.
