PRLog - July 29, 2014 - SEATTLE -- Earlier this year, March 2014 marked the 25th consecutive month of year-over-year increases in home prices, according to the CoreLogic Home Price Index Report.

During the housing crisis, home prices dropped precipitously. The drop in prices left millions underwater on their mortgages, owing more on their home than the property was worth. However, the recent increase in home prices in the Seattle – Bellevue - Everett Metropolitan area is ending mortgage struggles for many.
“Home prices have increased dramatically and many homeowners have finally regained equity in their homes.” says Carlo Delizo, Certified Distressed Property Expert of Re/Max Metro Realty Inc.
Several market conditions combined to drive the recent price increases, such as limited inventory, more people looking to buy a home, and fewer distressed properties.
“Many people don’t realize just how much things have improved,” Delizo said. “The same factors driving prices have also made today’s market a seller’s market. Today, homeowners who have been struggling in recent years have more options than at any time in the last five or six years.”
