November 2016 Real Estate Market Update

by Cory Brandt

Nothing Spooky about October Results  ......

The number of closed sales in October rose 10% this year over 2015, surprising not only me me but a number industry analysts.  We usually see a seasonal slowdown as the holidays approach, but not this year.  Pending sales were up almost 7%,   New listings were down, giving King County about one months worth of inventory.

Still a Seller's Market, but  ......

September sales continued to outpace last year, with the number of closed sales up 9% over September 2015.   Inventory is still historically low, but new listings increased by 14% last month.  The increase of inventory may have contributed to an increase in average days on market for many listings or just a typical transition for this time of year.  As we get into fall and winter, you see less offer reviews and bidding wars.

Summer Slowdown or Start of a new trend ......

August sales continued to outpace last year, with the number of closed sales up 12% over 2015.  But for most of 2016, we've seen homes go pending within a week or two (if not days).  Last month, the days on market doubled on the Eastside from 19 to 40.  Inventory is still historically low, keeping the advantage in the seller's corner.  However, buyer's are definitely growing more cautious and taking their time to make an offer.

July 2016 Real Estate Market Update

by Cory Brandt

More Listings Mean Happier Buyers ......

The good news for buyers in June:  a 10% year over year increase in new listings.  This is largest number of new listings in a single month since March 2010.  The increase in inventory meant fewer multiple offers, a much needed break for buyers.  But luckily for sellers, approximately 80% of listings were under contract within 30 days.
