Tri-Cities New Building Permits Almost Triple!

By in Tri-Cities Housing Market with 0 Comments

If you read the Herald yesterday, you might have caught this article about the upswing in new construction.

Other than the fact that this means more jobs, and a boost to the economy, it’s good news for the local real estate market, too.

When no one is building new homes, the current supply of homes is all there is. Therefore, a seller’s market is created. Limited supply combined with regular or increased demand creates a situation where home prices rise. While this is good news for sellers, it isn’t for buyers. A balanced market is actually the ideal situation.

Be sure to read the whole article I linked to in the first sentence. They interview a cross section of builders in different price ranges, all of whom report positive news.

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.
