Knowledge, communication, and partnership are key factors to a successful negotiation in Seattle’s market. In general, sellers have endured significantly different market conditions in the past, so their experiences are heavily influencing how they approach their real estate decisions today. Many buyers, on the other hand, have specific objectives in achieving their real estate dream, not motivated by past experiences. Your goals are the priority. Let’s get to work.

Sold Listings: 756     -1%
Total Inventory: 1,296     -10%
Average Sales Price: $892,000

Buyers have very specific expectations on what they are looking for, a combination of condition, location/lifestyle and price are all required.

Sellers’ objectives have centered on price and they are beginning to understand that buyers’ definition of value is much more. The complexity between buyers and sellers is the result of different experiences and expectations.

With online data, media coverage, family & friends all providing different perspectives on the market, buyers and sellers are succeeding by utilizing experienced professionals to sift through the voluminous data available.

Knowledge, communication and partnership are critical components of today’s real estate market. I know your goals are unique. Let’s start a conversation.

Metro Seattle real estate data suggests we may see a shift from a seller dominated market to a buyer supported position. An experienced local expert will assist you in navigating the shifting factors in today’s market. I welcome the opportunity to leverage data for your success.

Buyers will benefit from inventory growth
In May, Metro Seattle’s real estate market offered buyers more opportunity for success. New listings increased 24% while pending sales increased a modest 6%. What does this tell us? With more inventory available, buyers have more options. It has been years since buyers have had an equal position in the market. The key is understanding local statistics and trends in order to make an informed decision. I welcome the challenge to create a solid plan for your success.

Q1 2019 Metro Seattle Housing Report

Q1 data is traditionally a subtle indicator of what we might
expect for the spring selling season. However, February’s
unprecedented snow and weather conditions brought
the greater Seattle and Eastside area to a standstill for
the better part of the month. Given this unique quarter, we
find ourselves looking at the performance from the last
30 days to determine what we may expect this second
quarter.
In March, Metro Seattle saw new listings increase 71%
from the previous month and at the same time pending
sales increased by 80%. Sales outpacing new inventory
confirms that buyer demand remains strong. While
average sales price was 13% higher than February, the
90-day price trend is down 3% during the same period a
year ago. Although multiple offers have returned, many
of these offers were near the asking price. This is another
indicator that Seattle’s home prices have and continue
to stabilize. Finally, mortgage rates decreased in Q1 and
continue to show signs of this trend.
Most media reports are only looking at a narrow time
period and rarely provide the full perspective of the
market. Buyers and Sellers are well advised to seek the
advice of an experienced real estate professional to gain
the specifics that will serve their objectives. I welcome the
opportunity to provide you with facts that will position you
to succeed in today’s market.
