Sales on Whidbey Island

Our standard winter inventory is just waiting for all of those new spring listings. As you can see, inventory peaks in the summer months, but sales for last year were fairly consistent. We know there are a lot of new properties coming on the market soon. Give us a call and find out what’s new. Here’s a graph of the last 12 months worth of listing inventory and sales.

Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ Bayview Office is Open!

Whidbey Island Home Inventory

Here is a chart of the active residential listing inventory on Whidbey Island for the past year. As you can see, the inventory is dropping – a usual happening during the winter months. But interest rates are really low now and it’s time to consider finding your new home while there are still choices available. Your Coldwell Banker Tara Properties broker can help you locate your perfect new home.

See us at the Whidbey Island Fair

Coldwell Banker Tara Properties again has a booth at the (formerly Island County) Whidbey Island Fair in downtown Langley. Stop by and say hello. We’re there from 9:30 to closing each of the 4 days. The booth is in the Turner Commercial building and we’re giving away bags, pens, and a chance to win a daily $50 gift certificate to 3 Sisters Family Farm in Oak Harbor. 3 Sisters features natural grass-fed beef, natural pork, and free-range eggs. The brokers on duty will be glad to give you any information on buying or selling real estate on Whidbey Island or any general information you may want on buying, building, selling, or living on Whidbey Island.
