(NWMLS February Release)

KIRKLAND, Washington (February 6, 2020) – “All indicators point to a vigorous spring market,” suggested broker Dean Rebhuhn when reviewing just-released statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. The report covering 23 counties shows pending sales outgained new listings, record-low inventory that’s down 33% from a year ago, and double-digit price increases.

Matthew Gardner, chief economist at Windermere Real Estate (the largest regional real estate company in the Western U.S.), noted home buyers did not take very much time off during the holidays. “They hit the ground running as soon as the new year kicked off.” (Windermere has 140 offices in the NWMLS market area.)

Sellers Here's How to Prepare for a Home Inspection

Some good advice: Do not try to conceal any defects you know are in the home. The key here is to work together! All homes have some issues, none are perfect so buyers and their agents are prepared to purchase a home that may have some issues.

The home inspector may find any defects anyway, and you don't want to be breaking any laws or causing the process harm. After all, you want to sell your home, and someone wants to buy it! 

Here are some ways to be ready for the inspection:

  • Keep your power on if you are listing your home vacant (the home inspector may need to check a few things that need power)
  • Check all your light bulbs and change any burnt out bulbs. This may cut down on time the

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.

And while King County as a whole charted an infinitesimal bump in year-over-year home prices, it was so small that you might miss it if you

Family saving money in piggy bank

Buying a home is likely the biggest purchase you’ll make in your lifetime. There’s a reason why people joke they feel “house poor” when they leave the closing table. Too often the burden of the down payment leaves homebuyers’ cash reserves empty.

And, new data shows that can be a recipe for financial stress.

A better measure: Cash on hand

Research by the JPMorgan Chase Institute flips the script on homebuyer risk. It turns out that having a cash cushion trumps a big down payment.

Historically, a big down payment is associated with lower risk, but the report found that liquidity — having at least three months of mortgage payments available — is a better measure of homeownership success. In fact, borrowers with less than one month of

This in from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service:

KIRKLAND, Washington (September 9, 2019) - 

Depleted inventory continues to frustrate would-be buyers in Western Washington. Many of these potential homeowners are expanding their search beyond the major job centers in King County, according to market watchers who commented on the latest statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. 

The MLS report summarizing August activity shows less than two months of supply system-wide, and only about 1.6 months of supply in the four-county Puget Sound region. The sparse selection is pushing up prices. For last month's sales of single family homes and condos across the 23 counties served by Northwest MLS, prices rose nearly 6.2% compared to a year
