A fresh batch of open houses this week. Are you looking on-island, or across the way into Seattle? Or, perhaps, across the water into Bainbridge?
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.

This last weekend in July is jammed-full of fun activities! Seattle, Eastside, and here on the Mercer Island you’ll find something!
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!
