Week-End Market Report
The real estate market in Clark County WA is still hot. Even with the winter months closing in, activity is high, inventory low, and prices are up.
While the market may slow a bit during most winter months, there is still a lot of activity. During this time of year, most buyers are pretty serious and not just looking. Likewise, sellers are eager to move on and are often willing to negotiate over price or terms. The frenzy of Springtime is not as prevalent, so it is a good time to consider buying if you are in the market.
Here’s a quick recap of the week’s market activity this week in East County, Camas and Washougal. Plus, the latest market report for MultiGen homes in Clark County.

If you are thinking about selling, now is a great time! Some COVID restrictions have been eased – e.g. open houses are allowed again with certain restrictions. All showings continue under controlled environments, but houses keep getting shown and sold. Call us for the latest COVID guidelines and for a free consultation on your home’s value.
Be super-prepared when you start looking. Have your financing and down payment in order, and be prepared to make an offer as soon as you see what you like. Waiting will likely mean the house will be gone. You might also find yourself in a bidding war. In that case, know your absolute limits, and don’t fall into the emotional trap of overpaying just to win. An inflated price will hurt you in the long run when it comes time to sell. You can start your home search here.
