Snohomish County Housing Inventory July 2016
How low can it go? Two years ago the housing inventory was really starting to favor the sellers. Most of the bank owned and short sale inventory was being consumed and equity based situations were on the rise. Now, the market trend has been very strongly in the sellers corner with July 2016 having 1.3 months of standing inventory.
In the next evolution to seller marketing, we are happy to announce that the Barnett Associates Team offers complimentary 360° Video tours for every home we list. There are some bugs to work out, with audio and clarity, yet it is an exciting time for our sellers and us.

As a follow up to the solar home value blog, a video was made. A&R Solar allowed us to use GoPro's to film the installation to make a video for both the homeowner and our use. This is not a typical installation video where there is discussion on system specifications, system requirements, system costs, and how much production the solar provides. It's a GoPro style video with music, cool scenes, and video production flow. We think it turned out pretty good and if you enjoyed please Like it on YouTube. Enjoy!
Snohomish County is experiencing a real estate climate reminiscent of the hay-days of 2005-2007 and for a seller its one of the single greatest times to list a property. Inventory is low and demand is still steady yet what are the actual statistics with:

Inventory is scare and the last two months are the lowest inventory levels in history at 1 Month. So if you're feeling there is nothing available, you're right.
In this blog post, we'll be trekking into the unknown world of Photovoltaics (PV) to answer the emerging question Will solar power increase a home's value?
To understand how solar power increases a home value, we'll go through:
- Understanding Photovoltaic (PV)
- What Incentives are Available to Homeowners

Starting this journey, it is important to understand what PV is. In the short, PV is adding solar panels to a property to produce power which the homeowner can immediately use. Wikipedia's definition is a bit longer:

Aerial drone tours are something we never tire of. Quite the opposite. Every time we get to fly a home, it gives us, and our viewers, the chance to see another view of beautiful Snohomish County. Sometimes the skies are blue and cloudless and other time, well, they're not.
This tour takes us out to Skinner Rd, just off Robe Menzel in Granite Falls, and the Pilchuck West neighborhood. This home is built on 4.59 acre lot, features 1,801 sq.ft, 3 Beds, 2 Baths, and has been so well cared for by its loving owners. Some highlights are: long driveway, plenty of parking near the home and on the property, and a fresh exterior paint job all in a great looking community.
