Monroe, Snohomish city, Duvall and Sultan market update 

 

In 2021 we were starting to see many people transition to moving from the bigger cities in Washington to more rural areas in the Snohomish County communities like Monroe, Sultan, Duvall, and Snohomish city. In a blog I wrote in May 2021 Washington's Rural Communities I addressed how Snohomish saw an increase of over 10% in sale prices, with an average of seven days on the market.

Justice Department probe, civil lawsuits pose challenge to real-estate industry practices

“Plaintiffs’ allegations plausibly show that the Buyer-Broker Commission Rules prevent effective negotiation over commission rates and cause an artificial inflation of buyer-broker commission rates,” the judge wrote last year. “But-for Defendants’ conspiracy, each Plaintiff would have paid ‘substantially lower commissions.’”

Transparency in Commissions

Fact: Real estate brokers’ commission rates are not regulated in any state and are ALWAYS 100% negotiable.
