Seattle Market Update
Few homes came on the market between Thanksgiving and the first half of January. We have seen an increase in homes hitting the market in the last week of January and first week of February but it is not enough inventory to meet buyer demand. It is a hot seller’s market – buyers are facing stiff competition and fierce bidding wars. Our concern is that the economics of scarcity are driving prices up at an unsustainable rate.
In January, the median home sold for $725,000 in King County, $599,990 in Snohomish County, $440,000 in Pierce County and $791,471 in the City of Seattle.
Tired of Staring at your Walls
Most of us have spent more time in our own four walls over the last year. Are you tired of staring at your walls? Maybe a new paint color can bring back some excitement. Painting a whole room for a fresh feel or just painting an accent wall could be just the medicine you need. Better Homes & Gardens just revealed the colors of 2021. Kerstin’s favorite is Aqua Fiesta and Krisanne loves Aegean Teal . What’s your favorite?
