Forest Rock Hills

Forest Rock Hills is a lovely community in Poulsbo with many homes having partial Westerly Olympic Mountain views.  Located just above the famous Poulsbo Central Market, it’s a terrific location close to schools, shopping, medical & dental care and commuter routes.

At the bottom of the page we’ve included a map of the area included in the Forest Rock Hills subdivisions & phases.

As you’ll see in the photos, there actually is a large rock from which the community was named.

It’s important to note that while both the Tax Assessed Valuations and the Auto Valuation Models can be instructive about home values, these numbers may not be keeping pace in real time with what is actually occurring in the market at any given time. The AVM, values are calculated more recently than the Tax Assessed Values, but they are based largely upon a statistical sample and do not reflect special individual home features, upgrades or undocumented unique characteristics. The true market value is dependent primarily upon the recent most comparable sales, and then appropriate adjustments made. The best way to obtain the current value of your home without paying for a full appraisal is to contact your Real Estate Broker and ask for a current CMA. If you don’t have a Broker you prefer, or one are currently working with, my partner Jana Salmans or myself would be very happy to assist you. Just give us a call or e-mail us, our contact information can be found at the top main menu and we will be happy to assist you.
