2014 home sales in Kingston, Hansville & Port Gamble starts off matching December’s 13 homes sold. However, there was a sharp decrease in the average selling price. This month, 62% of home sales were distressed properties with a majority being Bank owned (REO’s). In addition, the sale for this month declined to the lowest value in more than 18 months at $185,900.

This month, it dropped down to the lowest it’s been in over a year at $276,900. We believe the January data is an anomaly and not indicative of a trend, so we expect to see the numbers increase and fall more in-line with seasonal and overall market trends in the coming months.
