Kennewick WA, Pasco WA, and Richland WA, still rank at the lowest level in the State of Washington for foreclosures in March, which is a good sign of showing our consistency and stability in values in Tri Cities Washington. Our markets held steady and in most cases even increased in values. The number of VA home loan purchases in Tri Cities has shown great strength. VA  ranks the lowest in the county for foreclosures. VA home loans are one of the best options  for a Veterans, as it offers 100% financing, with $0 down payment, and the seller typically pays, in most cases, all closing costs. We have seen a high trend in buying new construction in the Tri Cities WA, especially in Kennewick WA. Former apple orchards are now becoming large developments,  in large volume. This trend should continue in Tri Cities Washington over the rest of 2011 and we should remain strong in home values and economic factors in Tri-Cities WA.
