There were 19 homes Sold in the combined areas of Hansville, Kingston and Port Gamble during the month of August 2012, which was 4 fewer than July, but still more than any other month going back more than 2 years! Selling prices however; did continue their wild monthly gyrations and were significantly less than the selling prices in July.
The challenge in reviewing and quantifying the home sales data for this combined area is that it is comprised of homes in a wide price range, from magnificent waterfront estates, to manufactured homes on acreage to homes in large plats and with so few Sold, the average and median selling prices have dramatic changes from month to month. If there are a couple more high end homes or a few more lower end homes in the data for any given month then the numbers have big changes.
What I can say with clarity, is that there are more homes being sold than in other months and this is reflective of the market in Kitsap County as a whole.
