Kennewick, WA- As the weather warms up, so should the Mid Columbia housing market.
Home sales in the Tri-Cities took a dip along with the temperatures in November, and the real estate market remained rather chilly throughout winter. But with the government stimulus package expected to create thousand of news jobs in the Tri-Cities, Tri-City Association of Realtors President Glen Clark says the housing market could heat up considerably this spring and summer.
"We have very few vacancies in the apartments and rental housing, and we've got about 1250 homes for sale on the market. You bring three thousand jobs into a community our size, it's going to be interesting on where these folks are going to live."
With interest rates at historic lows, the realtors association says the spring hopes eternal for both home buyers and sellers.
