Gala Pines

Gala Pines is a very nice and secluded community of 48 homes, just outside the Eastern boundary of the Poulsbo City limits.  Most of the homes in this community are set far back from the streets and the average parcel size is over 1/2 Acre, with a few sitting on parcels that are over 1 Acre.  The average home was built in 1978 with the oldest having been built in 1976 and the newest in 1988, though because many of the homes here have subsequently been remodeled or upgraded, the average “effective year built” in the neighborhood is about 8 years newer than the chronological age.

The homes average about 2000 Sq.Ft. of living space and 75% are three bedroom, but 25% have 4 or more bedrooms.  If you are looking for a home that is close to downtown Poulsbo yet has a rural feeling with lots of “elbow” room around your home, you’ll want to take a look at this neighborhood if/when there are any homes available for sale here.

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.
