Milton, WA April 2010 monthly home sales stats   April was a VERY slow month for residential real estate sales In Milton. For the entire month, only one house sold. One! And that one didn't close until April 23rd so there were almost zero sales. Obviously the federal tax credits of $8,000 to first time buyers and $6,500 for move up/move down buyers did nothing to stimulate our local real estate market in Milton, WA.   Here is the information on the home that sold- The square footage was 1792. The $ per square foot was $111.58. The number of days on market was 43.   The original list price was $199,900. The list price at contract was $199,900.

Milton home sales for April 2009 were average with 4 homes closed.  (2008 saw 6 homes sold in April) Of these 4 Milton, WA homes all of them were priced at $265,000 or below. Sale prices ranged from $58,000 to $265,000 with the average being $193,250. Days on market ranged from 10 days to 197 days with the average being 80 days. You'd think the home that sold for $58,000 would have sold the quickest, but it took 84 days before it got an offer. Price per square foot ranged from $36.69 to $196.53 with the average being $132.38. Square footage ranged from 1,094 to 2,052 with the average being 1546.

I was admittedly a little slow getting on the recycle band wagon but soon realized that it saves us about half of our solid waste expenses.  Since our contractor out of Puyallup serving the Edgewood area only takes plastic, paper & metal we're left with disposing of glass along with regular garbage.  For someone so slow to get on board, this has proved frustrating because Pierce County and south King County have very few glass recycling stations.  Needs for our real estate business rarely exceed one can per week but when it does, it is obvious that the easy ability to recycle glass could save us a few hundred dollars each year.So I was very pleased that in routine real estate related errands I stumbled upon a small glass recycling station in Milton, just a couple of minutes from our off...
