Nothing major.  There are 218 fewer listings in the first five months of this year, as compared to last year. 61 fewer solds. 22 more under contracts (May brought us that small jump).  Average sales price increased $5,720 between last year and this (about 3.5% appreciation…nice, steady and excellent!).  What does it all mean, you ask?  Fewer listings mean the ones out there are in higher demand…so a seller’s market.  BUT, fewer sales as well indicates the buyers have the control.  Let me check into days on the market and see if that changes anything…nope, 118 DOM, and it’s been hovering there for the entire 3.5 years I’ve been in the business.  Hmmmm…

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
