Seattle Times business reporter

Starting Oct. 1, it could start getting cheaper to buy a home around Seattle and most of Washington.

That’s because the curtain will be pulled away from a secret long kept within the community of real-estate agents: how much the agent representing the buyer collects when a house is sold. Brokerages in the Seattle-Tacoma area will be among the first in the nation to start publishing those fees, long kept hush-hush, on their online listings.

The market’s chilled out, but Seattle home prices still too hot for many first-time buyers 

  The Seattle area’s home prices have taken a break from their skyward trajectory of a year ago. (Greg Gilbert / The Seattle Times) The Seattle area’s home prices have taken a break from their skyward trajectory of a year ago. 

Seattle lost the title of the nation’s hottest housing market in August 2018 — but looking at home prices, which have stayed sky-high, that might be hard for shoppers to believe.

New monthly data shows the median price of a single-family home in Seattle — $760,000 — is exactly the same as it was one year ago. The same holds true for Bellevue, where a typical home ran $935,000 in August.

What is the market like for fall real estate?

While it’s true that housing inventory (the number of homes on the market) is lower in the fall than in the spring and summer, it’s also true that buyers who are shopping in the fall are likely to be serious about buying.
