KIRKLAND, Washington (November 6, 2018) – Seven months of steadily rising housing inventory reversed course in October when Northwest Multiple Listing Service brokers added the fewest new listings since February, according to a new report. MLS members believe the onset of wintry weather and transition to the holiday season are factors, but suggested the slower pace also signals improving conditions for house-hunters.

“After months of inventory growth that more than quadrupled the number of homes buyers have to choose from, things got back on a seasonal track with new listings and total supply falling in October,” said Robert Wasser, a director with Northwest MLS, when comparing those metrics with September.

“Buyers are catching on

Shane and Anne were exactly what I look for in a realtor. We relocate quite often and have dealt with many realtors. When selling our home, I want to speak to my realtor from day one and continue to work with them throughout the entire transaction. From our first meeting I knew that Shane and  Anne would be perfect for our home sale in Issaquah. Our family was relocating out of state and it was important that we sell our home as quickly as possible and get the best price. We were instantly challenged with five other townhomes in our neighborhood listed and the market was changing. After a few weeks on the market with open houses every weekend and a few showings. We told Shane we really needed to sale. He answered by setting an aggressive

Costco and the City of Issaquah reached a deal on a new 640,000-square-foot building, expected to open in 2020.

The retailer plans to add a nine-story, 620,000-square-foot office building and adjacent parking garage with about 1,650 stalls at its Issaquah campus.

The new building will mark the first construction after an agreement from a few years ago that allowed Costco to build 1.5 million square feet of new office space, and in exchange, the city and Costco agreed to partner 50/50 on nearly $50 million in new street improvements.

Costco is by far the biggest employer in the Seattle suburb. The retailer moved its headquarters to Issaquah in 1994. The new office building and parking garage at Costco’s Issaquah campus could make

Seattle-area home prices dropped more than anywhere else in the country, according to the new Case-Shiller home price index released Tuesday. The index showed the region’s largest monthly drop in home prices since the late stages of the housing bust.

Just this past May – which in hindsight appears to have been the peak of the current market – homes in Seattle were selling on average for 6.3 percent above the list price. Now, they’re going for 0.6 percent below asking.

The actual list price of homes is dropping at a similar rate. In all, sales prices have dropped nearly 7 percent, or $55,000, in Seattle since the spring.

The last time the average home here sold for below list price was during a brief lull at the end of 2014.

Latest Press Release

KIRKLAND, Washington (October 4, 2018) - Housing inventory continued to improve during September while the pace of sales slowed in many counties served by Northwest Multiple Listing Service. "Balance is finally returning to the market, and with it, slowing home price growth," stated OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate.

A new report from Northwest MLS shows double-digit increases in inventory in several of the 23 counties it serves, led by a 78 percent year-over-year gain in King County. Despite improving selection in the central Puget Sound region, a dozen counties reported drops in the number of active listings compared to last year.

System-wide, the month ended with 2.56 months of supply of single family
