Number of Foreclosures Decreases in the Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- High foreclosure levels might not be something to worry about in the Tri-Cities real estate market.

Real estate agents say the number of foreclosures this year in Washington has actually gone down compared to previous years.

In the Tri-Cities current home owners are looking at newer developments and visitors are coming here to stay. Realtors say there are a lot of selling points in the Tri-Cities.

"Our 300 plus days of sunshine, our great recreation, the wine industry, golf courses, the river, our excellent schools, and just positive employment here in the Tri-Cities, are definitely things that people are looking at," said George Eakin, a local realtor.

Real estate agents also say sales were down during the month of November, but within the past couple weeks they have seen the number of interested buyers go back up.
