This week, we touch back on December 2015 and its strong end to the successful real estate year. We’re eager to see that trend carry over to this year. We also highlight how Seattle and many other areas in the Pacific Northwest made the strongest 2016 housing market list! We agree that this will be a great real estate year for Washington, so now is the time to buy, sell or invest. We also found five things buyers should be aware of when looking at a new home.
