Sneak Peek at Mercer Island’s 2012 Year in Review

How do real estate companies ring in the New Year? For many, it involves the compilation of annual reports detailing the productivity of the housing market during the past year. Windermere Real Estate / Mercer Island is proud to participate in this annual process. We want to provide local homeowners and potential home-buyers with accurate, specific statistics regarding the performance within the Mercer Island real estate market over the past 12 months. Owner Julie Barrows personally compiles the statistics. She spends time carefully analyzing all the data, utilizing her 27 years of local real estate experience, 15 of those years spent right here on Mercer Island, to guide her through this endeavor.

Every year, Julie and Windermere Mercer Island shares this helpful information with the Mercer Island community by mailing out the Year in Review report. While this document is still in the production stage, below are some 2012 stats to whet your appetite:
