  • 4-6 Month Supply creates a Balanced Market

 KIRKLAND, Washington (May 7, 2018) – Home buyers may be cheered by an uptick in inventory, but the improving supply is unlikely to reverse rising prices, suggest industry leaders from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Commenting on just-released figures for April, which showed the highest level of active listings since August, OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate said, “For the first time in a long time we had good news for buyers.” Noting supply is still lower than year-ago levels (down 5.6 percent), it

Here are the latest figures for Snoqualmie Ridge for the month of April 2018.  The average sold price is down about 7% from March.  Does this indicate a correction?   Not so fast. The price per square foot is actually up from $295 to $306.  This just indicates the homes sold last month were smaller in size, on average.  Come back each month for how the market shapes out.  And remember, you get the same great service when you choose a 1% listing agency that you do with a traditional brokerage.  Happy house hunting!

4 Reasons Why Today’s Housing Market is NOT 2006 All Over Again | MyKCM

With home prices rising again this year, some are concerned that we may be repeating the 2006 housing bubble that caused families so much pain when it collapsed. Today’s market is quite different than the bubble market of twelve years ago. There are four key metrics that explain why:

  1. Home Prices

A basic beginner's explanation for our soaring home prices in King County: There are a lot more people searching for homes, and far fewer homes available for them to buy.

There just aren’t enough homes for sale.

The number of homes on the market is at a low point for records that date back to 2000, despite the big increase in population over that span.
