Ask The Broker

Pat Krug is a Co-Owner & the Designated Broker at the Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty at all three locations.
The question this week?
“Why is it now a better idea to sell your home than last year?” (Fall 2022)
This question has arisen from the changes in the current market and where it’s headed.

Here is what Pat had to say;
“The biggest challenge that home sellers had during our “Covid Market” was where would they go when they sold? The extremely low inventory led to a flurry of bidding wars that escalated prices quickly. However, these same sellers faced bidding wars on anything they might want to purchase after selling and had very limited choices. With inventory increasing, and many more homes on the market now, sellers still have the equity they gained in the past few years. Home values have not dropped, the appreciation rate has just slowed.  And with more homes on the market, sellers now have the opportunity to find that perfect new home that best suits their current lifestyle!”

Pat has over 28 years of experience in the real estate industry. Before becoming co-owner of Coeur d’Alene Realty, she was a top-producing REALTOR for 18 years in the community.
Over the years, Pat has a long history of community involvement including: Graduate of the Leadership Coeur d’Alene program, Past President of the Board for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Idaho, Past Chair of The Education Committee for the Coeur d’Alene Association of Realtors and Board Member of the Coeur d’Alene Multiple Listing Service. In 2001 she was named the United Way Volunteer of the Year. In 2021 Pat was named as a Philanthropist of the year for the State of Idaho and also awarded a Woman of Distinction award from the Coeur d’Alene Soroptomists.
Pat uses her experience in real estate and her heart for community involvement to help educate and shape success for the Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty agents. Encouraging and leading all agents to give back to the community through an array of events and through the Windermere foundation.

All of the owners at Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty agree that one of the big differences at Windermere is the community involvement from all of their agents throughout Hayden, Post Falls, and Coeur d’Alene.
