The Seattle region is experiencing quite a unique set of circumstances — old and new — that are creating unattainable prices for many.

  • Topographical: There’s not much land to go around with lakes and Puget Sound in the way. There are also growth management boundaries. This makes what land is available for housing more expensive.
  • Development: Builders aren’t building enough to meet the housing demand because land is expensive. Labor costs are also up and that adds to the price.
  • Mass transit: Infrastructure, or lack thereof, makes it difficult to get around. So living in a convenient location is more expensive. Time is valuable, and commutes are growing. Buyers are moving farther out from Seattle along the freeways to find housing they can

Millennials, 18-35 years old, are dominating the home buying sphere as they are now the largest share of new home buyers.  Their entrance into this sphere, however, has not been easy. Median earnings for Millennials are just 20% of their Baby Boomer parents.  Student debt is at historical highs.  And, with relatively little or no inventory of homes for sale and rising prices, some Millennials may only get to dream about home ownership rather than become home owners.

Housing demand continues to increase as buyers of all ages tread the waters of home shopping, but real estate agents aren’t as busy writing offers and the key driver for this trend, according to a CNBC report, just might be prices.

 A new survey found 71 percent of Washington adults think a housing bubble is coming. New York, Florida and California residents were the next most likely to fear a housing bubble.

The biggest concern we here from buyers, sellers and even many agents in this market right now is,  “bubble.”

Home owners and long term residence still vividly remember the 2007 crash that lasted well into 2011. For buyers many see bidding wars on almost every property, and home owners nervously watch the prices ticking up and wonder;  "How much longer can this go on?”
