Real Estate with The Snow Group – May 2018

    A little Real Estate, a little fun in the sun. Here’s what we’re up to in May! 
    WHAT IS THIS ORB IN THE SKY AND WHY DOES IT MAKE US SO HAPPY? We are loving this weather! As the temperature rises so does the activity in the real estate market. Here’s a couple quick April stats for the Seattle residential market (a good example for the overall state of the regional market):

    • April saw a total of 886 new listings, a tick up from 812 in 2017
    • The market is picking up speed heading into the summer months with April showing 750 homes under contract, from from 721 last year
    • As with under contract homes, sales rose from 666 last year to 684 in April
    • The average sales price for residential homes in Seattle was $822,283, up from $718,375 this time last year.

    What does this all mean? Essentially we are seeing a normal seasonal shift in the market with slightly more inventory than last year.

    “How does this effect me?” For homeowners its a great sign. Seattle home prices are up over 16% from last year. It can be a tough time for buyers but we are seeing more inventory (new listings) coming online which could make it easier to get into the market as a buyer.
