2019 Annual Report

Seattle Metro 2019 Housing Market Overview
After years of declining inventory and aggressive price appreciation, 2019 brought a sense of balance to the Metro Seattle real estate market. Affordability issues led to moderation in prices as buyers pulled back to assess market conditions.

20 Year Anniversary

Today marks my 20th year with Windermere! To celebrate this milestone, I plan to spend some time in my neighborhood volunteering with King County Parks at this upcoming event: http://whitecenternow.com/2020/01/08/spend-your-mlk-day-of-service-at-dick-thurnau-park/

Throughout the years there have been many ups and downs in this career: a housing recession, housing highs, a marriage, my three babies, and a current divorce. Throughout it all… you have stayed current and devoted. Your trust, dedication, support, kindness, and friendship are most appreciated! Thank you so much for always being there for me, for lifting me up. I am dedicated to be of service to you, I am always here to help, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.

In gratitude,
Leah

Fall Update 2019

Technology goes a long way
…but closing a sale requires
Market knowledge
Experience
Skilled negotiation


Technology alone doesn’t close a sale.
Skilled negotiation is a critical component in all aspects of a successful real estate transaction. It begins with marketing a property and concludes with a closed sale. With more data available to consumers today, the concept of value is being redefined when choosing an agent. Let’s start a conversation and get the job done.

Sincerely,
Leah Pham, Managing Broker

September Market Snap 2019

METRO SEATTLE Real Estate Market Update

 

August 2019 statistics with % change from July 2019
Sold Listings: 726    down  -6%
Total Inventory: 1,203   down  -7%
Average Sales Price: $864,000    down -3%
Average Days on Market: 35   up +35%

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.

Sincerely,
Leah Pham
