Hi Joanne –
"Thanks again from both Ed and me for guiding us through the home-buying process. We both appreciate the constant source of calm and reassurance you have provided during this challenging transaction, and admire your ability to remain professional despite all the obstacles. Receiving the key last night brought us both an overwhelming sense of relief that we can now move forward with making the new place our home."

We're smack in the middle of a seller's market and numerous discussions about "shadow inventory" hitting the market abound.
Shadow inventory refers to real estate properties that are either in the process of foreclosure and subject to potential short sale or are already “owned” by banks or GSEs. In either case, these properties are “in the shadows" and not "on the market" but will be sometime in the future.
This is a hot subject because shadow inventory creates uncertainty about the best time to sell because if a flood of these "shadow" homes came on the market prices would decline due to inventory increasing beyond buyer demand. A flood of shadow homes would slow a full housing recovery and the price increases we are currently seeing.
Personally, I'm not buying it. We probably won't see this inventory materialize anytime soon, and here's why:
Banks have become more sophisticated in managing their inventory of short sales than in years past. As a result they are more measured in the pace at which they are putting these properties back into the market. Additionally, they are not in as big a hurry to release inventory when prices are rising faster than cinnamon rolls near a wood stove.
The next time you hear rumblings about shadow inventory materializing in a significant way, keep these six things in mind. What are your thoughts on the issue? I would be very interested to hear them.

Local VS National Real Estate News
What's the difference between national real estate news compared with local real estate news?
Real estate is a local business. If you are a buyer or seller who is thinking about purchasing or listing a property, you really do want to speak to an agent or broker that specializes in the area or city that you live in.
Real estate can change dramatically between cities and regions so you need to work with a local broker so you are getting the latest “up to the minute” accurate information about your current real estate market.

But there’s more, of course. Gig Harbor’s beauty is more than skin deep. People decide to stay and make a home here not only because of the unparalleled natural surroundings but also because of the community.
Gig Harbor remains that all-too-rare place where it’s possible to run into your neighbors at the grocery store or the dry cleaners, where people smile and wave to you as you walk down the street, and where individual participation in the life of the town is valued and encouraged.
The pace of life is slower here. Despite the area’s easy access to the cities of Tacoma and Seattle, Gig Harbor and the Key Peninsula feel like a world apart from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
In Gig Harbor, it’s possible to have the best of all worlds, to live in a quaint small town while having access to both wilderness and one of the great cities of the world. It’s possible to take advantage of everything civilization has to offer while living in a place where you can still see stars at night and hear crickets and frogs outside your front door instead of traffic.
Whatever you like to do with your spare time, you’ll find it here, whether it’s playing outdoors or indoors, browsing art galleries or taking in a play, stopping for a cup of chowder or sitting down for a unique fine-dining experience. The possibilities are endless. Our Gig Harbor Real Estate professionals are waiting to find just the right home for you.
