JBLM Real Estate Market Update

Current State of the JBLM (Ft. Lewis and McChord AFB) Housing Market

PCS’ing to JBLM and considering purchasing a home?   Population and economic growth in the Northwest, and particularly the Puget Sound region, has been in the news recently.  The JBLMJBLM ft lewis mt rainier area is experiencing extra-ordinary growth, similar to what the DC, LA, Dallas areas (and others) did in the 1990’s.  You will love it here….Endless recreation, great economy, lots of jobs for dependents, mild weather. 

The population of Western Washington has been growing by over 100,000 per year for the past 3-4 years.  130,000 in 2018! 

JBLM has been identified as becoming the largest installation in the US, projected to surpass Ft. Hood for assigned numbers in 2020.  The effect on the JBLM real estate market has been significant, with home values going up, and projected to do so for the foreseeable future.   

The Lacey Industrial Park, Shipping and Distribution Center, is adding thousands of jobs in the JBLM area, a boon for dependents.  Lacey, and the State of Washington, have figured out how to entice businesses to move up here from CA. Target, Kohl’s, Home Depot, and a number of others, are bringing lots of jobs, and demand for housing to the area.  Hawkes Prairie in Lacey is home to the industrial park, and just happens to also be the most convenient/closest off post housing in the JBLM area.

Washington State Government…The State Capital is located in Olympia, and state agencies are spilling over into Lacey and Tumwater.  If you are interested in growth, btw….the leading edge of growth moving south from Tacoma/Seattle is between Lacey and Tumwater. Home Ownership in these communities will pay dividends for years to come.

Our Clients
Phil Sharp and his wife were very easy to work with. They made buying our first home the easiest and most fun process ever. They put in an offer for us immediately which got us the exact home we wanted even though it had an offer already on it. They are kind, hardworking, patient people, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in the Tacoma, Washington area. He lets you take your time, he lets you decide exactly what you want, he takes you to exactly what you’re looking for and he makes sure that you get all of his attention when shopping for the perfect home. He’s the go to guy for sure!

Super helpful! Phil and his team helped us narrow down the perfect neighborhood, then the perfect home for our family. He followed us through the loan process and even brought a house warming gift after we settled in. Our home is absolutely perfect!
Testimonial

– The Turnbull’s

As first time home buyers, everything was new to us! Phil helped us with every single question that we had and gave us his honest opinion. He knew the best neighborhoods and did his best to find homes that met all of our needs! He kept us in the loop the entire escrow period, as there is a lot that needs to be done during that time! When we decide to move again, we will without a doubt be going to Phil!!
Testimonial

- Alysia and Chris Reiter

We bought our house sight-unseen and we felt comfortable doing so with Phil as our realtor. Phil and his team were in constant contact with us since we had a short window to purchase. Every single day I was getting a phone call or email with updated information about the market, the area we were looking at, as well as tips and guidance in reference to being first time home buyers. Phil and his wife went to multiple properties for us and he always gave us his honest opinion. I think what impressed me the most about the whole experience is that he could have sold us a home earlier on in the process, but he stuck it out and found us exactly what we needed. I cannot say enough about how pleasant my experience was and how much of the stress Phil and his team took out of this process.

- The McArtor’s

Phil, his wife, Gayle, and the whole Phil Sharp Homes team were a joy to work with from the start. Before we even arrived in WA to look at homes, the team had already been in contact with us to determine what kind of home we were looking for and also sent us several listings for us to "like" or "dislike" to narrow down our tastes. Phil and Gayle were very flexible with our schedule, and made it easy to look at homes by picking us up each morning and being very considerate of the time we spent or didn't spend in each listing. Once we decided on a home to buy, Phil really went the extra mile for us by giving us advice on making an offer and the purchase process and really listening to our concerns. He also checked in on us regularly during the process to make sure we were doing okay and if he or Gayle could help us in any way. Not only was this a wonderful way for us to purchase our first home, it was a wonderful way to be welcomed to Washington State!

Siddiq & Tricia Hasan CEO of Company Inc.

If it were possible to give Phil 10 stars we would!! Phil and his team are beyond amazing. We were military stationed overseas preparing to relocate to the area and Phil was able to assist us in the process of searching to closing on a home. As we were not able to view our property in person he provided video tours of the home and clearly communicated everything about the property; which made us feel like we were actually viewing the home in person. Even with a large time difference we were easily able to communicate with Phil in a timely manner. Throughout the entire process (from searching to closing), we were never frustrated or confused about what was taking place. Phil was exceptional at communicating the different phases of the home buying process and keeping us abreast of any new information or changes that were taking place. We are very grateful and lucky that we found Phil to be our realtor!!

I am so happy we had Phil to walk us through our first home buying experience. We handled everything remotely and it was a breeze! Phil is very knowledgeable about the area and his actions and dedication to making sure everything went smoothly clearly demonstrate his commitment to customer satisfaction. The wealth of information he provides ensures you understand the process from start to finish and he was always available to answer questions. Phil and his wife definitely went above and beyond to make the process pain free and make sure we got settled into our new place.
Testimonial

- The Wichmann’s

Our family purchased a home in Washington while still living in Germany with the help of Phil and his associates. We wanted nothing more than to have a beautiful house waiting for us when we arrived at our new duty station. Buying a home "sight unseen" is not a recommended way to go about the process, but Phil and his associates made it worry-free. They were our eyes on the ground! Every question we asked was promptly answered and detailed information about every home we were interested in was provided to us. When we finally found a promising house, Phil was more than happy to visit the home repeatedly and take loads of pictures to send to us. We had a few hiccups with the seller along the way and Phil was not afraid to put his foot down so that we would not get taken advantage of. Now that we are living in the home, Phil and his team are still at the ready for anything we may need. I have worked with other realtors and I can say the knowledge, the advice, the guidance, and the overall concern for your best interest Phil's team displays is unbeatable. Thanks again Phil!
