  The term "Hot Real Estate Market" doesn't even do the situation justice any longer. March was easily the priciest month for real estate in the Puget Sound region’s history, and we haven’t yet reached the peak home buying season. In Fact: King County’s median single-family home hit a new high of nearly $600,000 in March — about double the prices seen at the bottom of the housing bust five years ago.

And this time the crisis is all about one thing: supply

  First-time homebuyers are crowded out, with the number of starter homes on the market declining 43.6% in the past four years. While homeowners who want to move from a starter home to something better can't afford the next step. "Trade-up" homes, or homes that represent the next step for buyers as families and personal income grow, on the market are also down about 40% over the same period.   In the greater Seattle area and surrounding counties for example:

  • Pending Homes outpace New Listing by nearly 5,000 Homes
  • Inventory down 25% from a Year Ago
