April 2019 Seattle Housing Market Update

The March numbers are in and we're liking what we see. With an influx of new listings we've been keeping our eyes on the pending sale numbers, as those show us how the buyers are or are not responding to the new housing inventory. Good news...the buyers are out there! In fact, 5.8% more homes pended last month compared to the same month in the previous year. 

Spring 2016-18 were some of the busiest recent times for Seattle real estate. The market corrected and slowed down a bit around August 2018, which left us wondering if this Spring we'd see the typical increase in pendings and inventory. We're happy to report that with the help of low interest rates, buyers are out shopping and keeping the reputation of the Spring Busy Season alive.

March 2019 Seattle Housing Market Update

We closed out an interesting February this year. Key markers of new listings and pendings showed a slight drop, but would you look at that inventory count! 

An 89% increase in homes on the market means that both buyers and sellers may need to adjust expectations. For home sellers, days on market will likely be longer and with buyers having more houses to choose from, the possibility of multiple offers is less likely than it would have been last year or the year before. 

But we always have exceptions to the rules and outliers! Hot, hot, hot homes are still selling quickly. Buyers are still willing to get competitive when all the pieces fit. If you're wondering how your home might fare in this market then let's have a discussion to work out the best strategy for your unique situation.
