Tremendous Growth for Pasco, WA

By in Pasco WA Real Estate & Homes for Sale with 0 Comments

in ’06, but it didn’t even grow as much as it had in ’02,’03,’04 and ’05!  Fantastic! Last year, Pasco’s population grew 5.5%. Total Tri-Cities population now stands at 168,650.  West Richland adds another 10,000+ people to the mix. 

My favorite quote from the Tri-City Herald’s story is from Dean Schau, our local doom-and-gloom economist (yes, I know that’s how economists are, it’s still not warranted).  He said, “…when all is said and done, it surprises the Hell out of me…five percent for Pasco? That’s incredible.” (Watch your language, Dean!  It’s a family newspaper/blog!)

And, more good news for the economy in general and the housing market in particular; not a single one of Washington’s zip codes appear in the list of Top 500 Foreclosure areas. 

Gee, sounds like Tri-Cities is a pretty good place to live.  Does that sound smug?  My apologies if it does.

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.
