According to Paul Roberts of the Seattle Times, the Puget Sound housing market continues to splinter into hot and cold sectors — with substantially more heat the farther south you move — but the trend may be moderating as buyers and sellers adjust their expectations. In Kitsap County, the median home price increased 6.9% over the past 12 months, to $385,000, in May — a significant jump from April’s increase of 4.5%.
