Fort Lewis Wa Frequently Asked Questions:

FAQ Fort Lewis JBLM Real EstateWhat are the most popular areas off post for home buyers moving to Ft. Lewis WA?

I have found that the top three areas to purchase a home in the Fort Lewis area are Lacey (Hawks Prairie especially), Yelm & Roy, and Spanaway/Graham. Each has it's own pro's and con's.

 

What is the average home price in the Ft Lewis area?

Prices are a little higher to the south and east of post. The average home price in north Thurston County is about $220, 000, which includes Lacey, Olympia and Yelm, The average in southern Pierce County is about $200,000 (Spanaway, Graham, Lakewood!.Dupont is an exception).

 

What is your opinion of home prices in Dupont WA?

Dupont is a great community just outside of the gate, also very convenient to the freeway. Location is important, and is Dupont Homes For Sale In JBLM Fort Lewis Areawhat has held up property values in Dupont!but I am concerned about the large number of listings that turn into rentals!.homes that wouldn't sell.

 

How far is the commute to Yelm Wa?

There are a couple of routes to reach Yelm, from the north thru Roy, or from the south via the Nisqually Valley. A large percentage of recent home construction in Yelm has been on the south end of town, so the southern route is more common. Depending on time of day, the commute is 20-30 minutes.

 

And the commute to Lacey?

The closet part of Lacey to Ft. Lewis is called Hawks Prairie. I lived in Hawks Prairie prior to retirement, and was 15 minutes to the post headquarters. The max drive anywhere in Lacey is about 30 minutes.

 

How do I get started searching for homes for sale?

Stephanie knows the MLS like the back of her hand, and is familiar with every listing in the Ft Lewis area. She will work with you for up to 6 months prior to your house hunting trip to ensure that we have listings and a good plan in place before you get here.

The pre-qualification process is easy and can be done over the phone. While I am not a VA lender, I have worked with one since I PCS'd to Ft Lewis. She is very well known in the area, and is a lender..not a broker. Visit our Fort Lewis buyers page for more information.

 

Can you explain the entire process of buying a home at Ft Lewis!or point me to someone who can?

I wrote a document called the Home Buying Process From Start to Finish and published it on my website a couple of years ago!then I saw my work on a competitors website. If you fill out a request form above, just ask for a copy and I will send it to you.
