You may have heard by now that the housing inventory is very low in Clallam County – and in Washington. How low is low? According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service we currently have 196 homes with an average list price of $416,424 on our local market.
Year to date, 429 homes have sold with an average price of $269,584. Together these numbers tell the story about the true demand. Without new homes coming on the market we have about 5 months of inventory out there. Anecdotally, my fellow brokers and I are seeing many buyers from other areas moving to our piece of paradise. This increased activity increases prices and creates multiple offer situations on desirable homes.
