Seattle Market Update

Usually, the real estate market slows down Thanksgiving week until early spring. However, we are not seeing much seasonal slowdown this year; buyers remain very active in the market. Homes that come on the market are selling quickly and typically with multiple offers. Inventory is not meeting the demands of the market, so buyer competition is fierce. According to the NWMLS, King County active listings are down 60% from a year ago. We should mention that this extremely high demand is for single family homes which are selling in a matter of just a few days and that townhomes and condos are not selling as quickly.

We often tell our sellers to wait until spring to put their home on the market when their yard comes alive and we have longer daylight hours but we anticipate Q1 ‘22 being a very fast-moving market with high buyer demand and it might make sense to list earlier in 2022 and not wait until everyone else hits the market in Q2.  

Can you decorate your home if you are selling over the holidays?

If you strike the right balance and don’t overdo the holiday decorations, your residence will exude a positive energy and charm that can’t be felt at any other time of the year. Done well, your decorated home will offer the kind of warmth that appeals to potential buyers and helps them to imagine living there. So go ahead and celebrate what is likely your last holiday season in that home.

We’d love to hear from you
