August 11th Seattle Area Housing Report

This week will likely mark the last active listing week of August as buyers, sellers and agents enjoy the last bit of summer vacations and prep for back to school. The second half of August is a great time for buyers to find the tables turned in their favor.

Look for a rush of new listings to come to market in the week following Labor Day as we enter the second most active season of the year.

August 4th Seattle Area Housing Report

The week’s record heat dried up the Seattle region’s inventory of homes for sale right along with everything else. We can’t remember an August where the number of homes for sale was this low!

July 28th Seattle Area Housing Report

Followed by last week’s record sales, and fewer new listings to market, this week marked an even more extreme shortage of homes for sale-with most areas having far less than one month of inventory at their mainstream price points. What is left on the market is often tired or lacking desirable features. Turn-key homes are golden right now and we need more of them!
