KIRKLAND, Washington (December 6, 2018) – With more plentiful inventory, recently announced increases in lending limits, and moderating prices, prospective home buyers are finding more options around Western Washington, according to industry experts from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Policy changes accompanied by funding to plan and implement them are needed to make housing more accessible in the Puget Sound region, according to several speakers at a Housing Solutions Breakfast held last month in Bellevue.

Sales of new single-family homes slipped 5.5 percent in September from volumes reported for August, according to data from HUD and the Census Bureau. Year-over-year prices also dropped, with the median new home price reported to be $320,000 in September, down nearly 3.5 percent from the year-ago figure of $331,500.

Seasonally adjusted figures show 553,000 contracts for new single-family homes, declining from a downwardly revised total of 585,000 for August. September's estimate was the lowest annual rate since December 2016.

KIRKLAND, Washington (November 6, 2018) – Seven months of steadily rising housing inventory reversed course in October when Northwest Multiple Listing Service brokers added the fewest new listings since February, according to a new report.

“After months of inventory growth that more than quadrupled the number of homes buyers have to choose from, things got back on a seasonal track with new listings and total supply falling in October,” said Robert Wasser, a director with Northwest MLS, when comparing those metrics with September.

“Buyers are catching on

Shane and Anne were exactly what I look for in a realtor. We relocate quite often and have dealt with many realtors. When selling our home, I want to speak to my realtor from day one and continue to work with them throughout the entire transaction. From our first meeting I knew that Shane and  Anne would be perfect for our home sale in Issaquah.

We were instantly challenged with five other townhomes in our neighborhood listed and the market was changing. After a few weeks on the market with open houses every weekend and a few showings.
