    Today's real estate market is a buyers market, but in the case of attractive well priced homes, it can also be considered an "aggressive" sellers market.   While over priced homes, distressed homes, and homes in need of repair may sit on the market for months; homes that are appealing to buyers because of price, location, or any number of other reasons, are selling fairly rapidly.

    If you own real estate that you're thinking of selling, I would be happy to provide you with a FREE Home Evaluation

    Fort Lewis and McChord AFB (JBLM) Communities and Living

    Fort Lewis Washington, renamed Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) in January of 2010, is the most highly requested duty station throughout the US Army. Fort Lewis offers a large range of assignments, for all career fields and pay grades. JBLM is also expected to become the largest military installation, by population, in the US within the near future.

    If you are relocating to Ft. Lewis, WA (The name has stuck, JBLM has become an equal, but alternative name for the base). The terms base and post are also both commonly used (however, base is a term not familiar to Army folks until recently). Regardless of what you call it, JBLM is the most requested assignment for a reason. The list of things to do within driving distance is longer than my arm, and it is diverse to the extent that you can surf within a 3 hour drive from the ski slopes (but the water is cold).

    The housing situation at Ft. Lewis, both on and off post, offers something for every lifestyle. If you are into the big city, either modern or old craftsman, you will find it in Tacoma and suburbs. If you are looking for a more rural setting, horse farms, and small town character, Roy and Yelm are great communities located just out the back gate. Yelm and Roy are separated from the freeway (I-5) by Fort Lewis and McChord, which makes them specially located for people who work on post. Both are growing very fast, and are distinctly different from the larger cities north and south of base.

    South of Post on I-5 are the communities of Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater. Lacey is the most popular destination for military families living off post. Prices   are reasonable, and the commute to all of the gates on I-5 can be made in 15-30 minutes. The furthest destinations in Olympia and Tumwater can take 45 minutes depending on traffic. When looking for homes for sale, remember that mailing addresses can be deceiving. There are Olympia mailing addresses to   the north of Lacey that are actually closer to post.

    About the closest commute you can get to Ft. Lewis main post is either Dupont or Lakewood. Both are nice communities, with Dupont being predominately newer. If you are looking for a home in Lakewood, make sure you are working with someone who knows the various neighborhoods. If you are interested in Dupont, it doesn’t get much more convenient, but it does get a bit more expensive. There are a large number of homes in construction and homes for sale in Dupont.

    Kind of like Mt. Rainier, which creates its own weather patterns, Ft. Lewis and JBLM creates it’s own economy and real estate market. The real Mountain View from JBLM Fort Lewis Real Estateestate market around base has remained relatively strong throughout the economic downturn. Home values have declined over the past couple of years, but not nearly as much as in other parts of the country…or other parts of Washington for that matter. In addition to Joint Base Lewis McChord, the local economy also gets a big boost from the Capital of Washington (Olympia), and commercial activities related to the Ports of Tacoma and Seattle.

    In light of the strong economy, growing population, and stability of JBLM and the State Government, the long term prospects for home buyers in the Ft. Lewis area are very, very good. In fact, I believe that the opportunity for service members who are able to obtain low interest, zero down payment VA loans, coupled with depressed home prices, is better than I have ever seen. It won’t last forever, but if you happen to be on orders to Fort Lewis or McChord AFB, your timing for being a home buyer couldn’t be better.

    Your PCS to Ft. Lewis Washington....

    I Have a Plan

    Phil comment JBLM Fort Lewis Real EstateWould you like to learn more about the Ft. Lewis area real estate market? Are you considering purchasing a home when you arrive at Ft. Lewis? The Ft. Lewis and McChord housing market, either for rent or ownership, has remained strong during the economic downturn, as has most of the Western Washington real estate market. In order to make you more competitive as a buyer, I like to start the home search and prep process several months before your move, so that you will be thoroughly familiarized with our housing market and area.

    Fort Lewis,   McChord AFB, Boeing….All Are Growing Beyond All Expectations.

    Fort Lewis creates it’s own “micro economy” within about 30 minutes of post, and   adds significantly to the demand for housing in the area. Overlooking Tumwater JBLM Fort Lewis Real EstateSoldiers stationed at Ft. Lewis compete with government employees working at the State Capital in Olympia, and competition for housing also comes from Boeing employees to the North in Graham and Tacoma. Additional demand for housing is being created by the large number of companies relocating their distribution hubs from CA to Washington; Target, Home Depot, and Costco to name a few.

    If you are moving to Ft. Lewis, and you are considering purchasing a home, you will find that I offer a plan that is designed to fit the needs and time-lines of soldiers and families PCS’ing to Ft. Lewis. I have a staff of three assistants with the mission of assisting you and your spouse learn about the Fort Lewis area, schools, commutes and other information:

    Fort Lewis WA Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: What are the most popular areas off post for home buyers   moving to Ft. Lewis WA?

    A: 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.

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

    A: 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).

    Q: What is your opinion of home prices in Dupont WA?

    A: Dupont is a great community just outside of the gate, also very convenient to the freeway. Location is important, and is what 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.

    Q: How far is the commute to Yelm Wa?

    A: 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.

    Q: And the commute to Lacey?

    A: 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.

    Q: How do I get started searching for homes for sale?

    A: Stephanie is our listings coordinator. She is available full time to manually search for homes for sale in the Fort Lewis area. 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.

    Q: Can you help me get qualified for a VA loan…what do I need to do?

    A: 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. . Visit our Mortgage Dept.  page for more information.

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

    A: I wrote a document called the “Home Buying Process From Start   to Finish,” check out the Home Buyers page for detailed information. Or, check out my video playlist on the Media Room page for buyer details.

    Joint Base Lewis McChord Real Estate on Facebook

    During my 25 years in the Army, my family and I made numerous PCS moves, both accompanied and unaccompanied. My experiences PCS’ing, and   working with various realtors around the country, taught me a lot about how to be a good realtor…and how the not so good ones operate. I have used these lessons learned in building my business plan and my business. I hope to share   the good with you.

    Not everyone understands the unique circumstances of a military move, or the urgency that military families face due to pending deployments,   schools, and duty requirements. Since my retirement from the U.S. Army in 2004, I have continued my service to soldiers, airmen, and their families making the move to Fort Lewis and McChord AFB.

    What do you value? Is it honesty, trust, dedication, knowledge? Your values are my values. I understand what makes your situation unique and use that knowledge to create a personalized plan to help you with your relocation. You can expect attentiveness to your needs, communication that suits your expectations, and relevant information that is helpful and up to date.

    by Veteran Army Realtor Phil Sharp 1SG, Retired

    OlympiaCapitolssmall JBLM Fort Lewis Real EstateOlympia is the State Capital of Washington, located at the southern tip of the Puget Sound, and straddling the Interstate 5 corridor, Olympia and the surrounding communities of Tumwater, Lacey and Yelm, have grown fantastically in just the past few years, with Thurston County being the fastest growing in the state.

    Although an urban center, home to the State Capitol and the County Seat, Olympia still has many rural characteristics.  Many Olympia mailing addresses are actually farms and larger parcels.  Olympia borders the Olympic National Forest, and numerous other parks, recreation areas and public facilities, yet is less than an hour’s drive to downtown Seattle.

Your insight on military families and their concerns, coupled with your obvious skill Overlooking Tumwater JBLM Fort Lewis Real Estateas a realtor made this relocation a joy." -Guy Mossman Olympia, WA

    "Thank you so much for your patience with us. Since we are relocating to our (hopefully) last home, we were a little picky. What we appreciated the most was that you didn't push us to buy a home that didn't fit what we wanted 100%. Best of luck to you." -Carrol Stokes Yelm, Wa

    "Phil- Thanks for all of your help, and please stay in touch. We are very interested in getting your advice about remodeling...and we love the house. Top, Thanks for your professionalism, Our move to Fort Lewis was one of the smoothest ever, and I attribute a large part of that to you." -The Roberts family

    "Phil, We really appreciate your help, and we love your approach. The "Favorites" function on your website is a great idea, and saved us all lots of time.

This was our 5th Army move, and was definitely the one with the highest "comfort" level." ---Mark Rueda
