Not a bad time to purchase a home in Port Orchard, Washington. Prices are down, interest rates are at an all time low you might want to look at what it means to you.
What do these numbers mean? Is it a good time to buy? Is it a good time to sell. It all depends on your individual situation. I would rather buy in a buyers market and I would rather sell in a buyers market if I have to buy another home with the proceeds. I am a fan of the NORMAL market – everyone can feel more comfortable and real estate transactions are not as stressful.
