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.

The Home Where Amazon Started

Back in the 1990s our cell phones were heavier, Pearl Jam was on repeat, and Jeff Bezos was founding Amazon in his garage. 

Since then our phones have slimmed down, Pearl Jam still rocks, and Amazon has seriously outgrown that garage. But, now you can own a piece of Amazon history! The Bellevue home where Amazon was founded has now listed for $1,488,888. 

See more photos of the home here!

February 2019 Seattle Housing Market Update

Good news for home buyers, the housing inventory is up over 100% compared to this time last year. If you can remember back to the Spring housing market over the past few years, low inventory was one of the biggest reasons we experienced such a competitive market. 

With more homes to choose from, buyers can breathe a small sigh of relief that competition has lessened. But before you put away the gladiator gear, keep in mind we are still in a seller's market. The hottest homes can still fetch multiple offers and sell above the listed price. 

Sellers, if you're not sure what actions you can take to make your home a hot listing then let's talk!
