No one can say for sure when the market will rise in a steady fashion.
I can only rely on sales information to get an idea of what is happening in any given market at any given time. In your zip code 98 average size homes (1,100-1,700 Sqft) sold bet 6-12 months ago for an average per Sq Ft cost of $199.85. In the last 6 months 97 of the same type homes sold for an average per Sq Ft. cost of $208.95. I ran the numbers further and in the last 3 months the average per Sq Ft. cost was 203.54. This suggests a leveling off in your particular area, so if you are in the market to buy this may be a good time. As you know interest rates are the lowest they have been in over 50 years. If you are looking to sell, I would only do it if you have to move, otherwise stay put for another 6-12 months and study the market.
