Hawkins-Poe Monthly Newsletter   -   April 2023


As we gear up to enter the spring market we want to help you navigate what is promising some good solid growth! This is the time of the year where the beginning of the open house season is starting and the good news is that it’s exceeding our expectations of what we’ve seen in previous years, with two solid months of growth since the beginning of 2023. This is exciting news for those who are ready to enter the market as a seller or a buyer! It may look a little different than past spring markets, due to rate hikes, inflation and a constant murmur of a recession, but don’t let that get you down as this isn’t showing any signs of slowing.

The Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) is reporting over 7,900 new listings for March, which means buyers are getting off the computer and into open houses! The key to this spring market is the importance of appropriately pricing your home. Homes that are pricing at market value are resulting in pending sales—up 14.5% since February!

Inventory is still limited resulting in inventory woes, but this means the demand remains high, which is great news for entering the market as a seller. All in all we’re excited to see a hot market on the horizon based on February and March’s numbers and hope you are as well!
