  1. Highest Number of New Listings to Hit The Market In 10 Years
  2. Increased Inventory Leans Towards a More “Balanced” Market

KIRKLAND, Washington (June 5, 2018) - Member-brokers of Northwest Multiple Listing Service added 14,524 new listings during May, the first time that volume topped 14,000 since May 2008.

This is why it is so important for you to ensure that the information used to calculate your score is free from errors. You are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) once every 12 months.

What is a “Balanced” Real Estate Market

Today we tackle the “balanced market“, which is considered to be an overall real estate market that does not favor the buyer or seller dramatically.

Home Prices in a balanced market tend to increase slowly and steadily, sometimes appearing flat.

One important note: is that an overall balanced market is really composed of several various markets, like this image
