Sold Patterns for Southworth, Olalla, Fragaria and more

This area is a bit harder to define:

142_S Kitsap E of Hwy 16

Basically, within 5 minutes of the Southworth Ferry, and/or south of Sedgwick all the way to hwy 16.

This area has a mix as well. We have the homes perfect for Seattle commuters here, several smaller suburban neighborhoods- most built in the 80’s and 90’s, larger lots, acreage and farm land.

Here is a picture of a recent closing of mine that captures a lot of the essence of this very large area of Port Orchard.


Closed April 2015 $337,000

Minutes from the ferry or the highway, but plenty of elbow room, country living without having the “drive to town” feeling.

Ok, lets take a look at the solds. First, the whole shabang. As you can see there is one crazy big expensive house that sold, so I am going to remove him so we can look closer.








The average home in this area has gone up almost $20,000 since 2013! Nice stable market, just on the cusp of becoming a buyer demand market which could drive prices up even further. This is where we in South Kitsap see the most influence (well this and the Manchester area) of the Seattle market and as you may have heard on the news, they were seeing crazy appreciation rates and the rental market is out of control.

Again, this market has less than a 3 month from list to close so the buyers are snatching these up quickly.

Now lets take a look at these homes but with a salt waterfront…

Only four have closed in the last 4 months. And four actives now. Seems small but if only one is closing a month… (one has been on the market for over 700 days!- that one really needs to see how POSITIONING your property gets you the most value and how absorption marketing gets results)

Definitely a buyer pattern, those summer views and bonfires are what make them pick these homes! Hopefully we get some fresh inventory for the buyers that are coming forward now.

I am in the military and Shari was better than the best! I know I will never use anyone else in the Kitsap area while she is still in the business. Shari stuck in there with me while I was trying to find the perfect house for me, even when it took 2... (more)


I was the one who first made with Shari, and it was a good decision as I found out later. Sheri very much knew the area that I lived in and helped me so much in getting all the information that I needed. After filling out a on line questionnaire I think I... (more)


Shari worked very hard to sell our house ,the pictures she had taken were remarkable. She would go out of her way to answer any questions that we had. Our house would probably have sold if we listen to her advice. Due to personal reason, we decided that we... (more)
