real estate report card for 3rd qtr

Just in ... Matthew Gardner's 3rd quarter 2012 report on the real estate market in Western Washington.

Highlights from his conclusion:

"The economy and real estate market in Washington continue to exhibit positive growth, but the rate of growth has started to taper. 

Now, some of this can certainly be attributed to seasonal fluctuations, as well as the current political environment, but it is important to put this into context. Our region continues to outperform not only all other West Coast markets, but also the United States as a whole.

The headwinds that do exist, mainly in the form of low levels of housing for sale, are likely to be temporary."  Matthew Gardner

Mr. Gardner is a land use economist and principal with Gardner Economics .
