Central Port Orchard

This area goes from the Hwy east to Long Lake but stays north of Sedgwick and south of Mile Hill… got that? No?

143_Port Orchard

Ok, this would have all of downtown homes, Parkwood, and the areas between. Huge mix of housing here. Downtown most homes where built prior 1950 and as you move out the homes seem to get younger. Its a generalization, but close.  Down town Port Orchard is rejuvenating and really starting to take on a new fresh character with the open market, walkfront, and indy stores opening up.

The younger buyers are drawn to the smaller footprint homes, easy public commuting and the access to all the cool new things to do downtown.

As you move out of town a bit, up the hill as they say, the homes get garages and bigger lots, and more out you start getting 1/3 to 1/2 acre lots pretty regularly. Again, most of these homes are built in the 70’s and 80’s. These offer great value to buyers as they have been upgraded over the years and they still get all the downtown amenities.

143Inventory is short in this area and seller’s are getting their price but still most are paying at least ¬†half of the buyers closing costs. I suspect based on the anticipated new listing inventory, this area will continue to appreciated well, but not over the top.

I am still working out what is the most useful information so any suggestions are welcome.

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)
