Gig Harbor Real Estate News

Home prices rise nearly 24%. But the devil is in the details!

The median sales price for Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula combined is up nearly 24% year-over-year for 4th quarter. $393,000 tops the $353,000 from a year ago. I used the full quarter of statistics to balance any single month's velocity. and I used the end of the year to most represent the current market. but details for each area vary widely.

New construction dominates close-in Gig Harbor, including the booming area surrounding Costco as well as Rosedale. Fox Island and Wollochet statistics are heavily weighted from waterfront sales.  And a drop in distressed sales had a major impact for some of Key Peninsula.

Gig Harbor--New home sales captured 41% of all sales, pushing the median price up in this area nearly 20% to $464,000. Waterfront sales were down by half, dropping median prices to $400,000 from $836,000 in that category.

Gig Harbor North--1 of every 8 sales was a new home, predominantly in Crescent Lake Estates. That market jumped $561-730,000. Prices overall showed an uptick $500-535,000 for 7%. While waterfront prices jumped 35%, less than half the number sold.

Fox Island--Prices jumped 45% $419-609,000 overall, with waterfront prices up 30.9% --$943-1,234,000. There are many view homes on the island, which helped push up the sales price. However, a smaller percentage of the sales was waterfront than a year ago. The few new homes on the island also added to the increase. Click below to my blog for the other six areas.
