Hi! This is Cari McGee with Keller Williams Realty. Welcome to this week’s episode of “Ask The Realtor.” Every week, I answer questions from buyers and sellers — and pretty much everyone in between — regarding real estate.
This week’s question is, “Cari, do you foresee the edges of the Tri-Cities spreading out further, like growing further north in Pasco, or west in West Richland etc.?”
And I actually absolutely do. There is a wonderful new development in Benton City which is on the west side of West Richland. West Richland ends and then Benton City begins. And there were some new homes built in east Kennewick not too long ago, and further north in Pasco there are newer homes being developed and new subdivisions. So absolutely, I do see us growing outside of our current confines and just getting a little bit more spread out in every community.
And I think that we should all take to heart the words of John Jacob Astor IV. Mr. Astor perished on the Titanic tragedy — or during the Titanic tragedy — so that’s too bad. However, before he passed away he made a great deal of money and one of the things he said was, “Buy on the fringe and wait.” So there you have it from a very wealthy man and your own personal favorite realtor. By all means, go ahead and take a look at those developments that are happening on the edges of the community because that’s where the growth is.
Thanks so much for watching and I will see you next week. If you have any questions for me regarding real estate, by all means give me a shout via any one of the methods that follow on the next screen. Thanks, bye.
