She actually squealed with delight upon hearing the news that her home had closed in escrow!  And that we were on our way to deliver the keys to her new home!

Never imagining she could qualify for a home, she was amazed that not only did she qualify, but that her:

 

new home payment,

including interest and taxes

would be less that $1,000 per month!

5 Crazy Facts About the Seattle Real Estate Market You Need to Know

 

These 5 Crazy Facts about the Seattle Real Estate Market are continuing to be the latest hot topics in the media.  

 

# 1 Crazy Fact: Historic Low Inventory. 

First up is the crazy low amount of inventory.  The amount of residential homes for sale are actually at the lowest number of units since the Northwest Multiple Listing Service has been keeping records for over the last 15 years.

# 2 Crazy Fact: Sales Outstripping New Supply for Last 3 Years.

We’ve been reporting this phenomenon since we ran the numbers in October 2012 for our blog article:  Critcial Housing Shortage on the Horizon.  With the exception of a few months during the summer, new sales continue to outstrip new supply coming on the market to meet the demand.  This puts continued upward pressure on home prices.

#3 Crazy Fact: Price are up a Whopping 30% Since the Bubble Burst.

Remember the implosion of the Seattle real estate market when the bubble burst?  Home values dropped over a period of about 5 years, a shocking 36% from peak to bottom.  Most home values have recovered in just 3 short years and we will most likely push through that peak sometime this year.

#4 Crazy Fact:  Sales Volumes are Normal.

What?  Really?  How could that be when inventory is so tight?  When we look at the historical annual sales volumes in units, we clearly see we are are at normal volumes prior to the bubble burst.  The volume of home sales during the peak of the bubble were not sustainable numbers because there were folks buying homes that shouldn’t have been.  These are the homes that ended up in foreclosure or short sale.

#5 Crazy Fact:  The Foreclosure Market Has Dried Up.

It’s true.  The days of picking up great foreclosure deals are a thing of the past.  Sure there are still a few around, but the amount coming on the market are now back to pre-bubble days.  Volume is now back to 2008 and continues to drop.

You Think The Seahawks Are Hot! Wait Until You Read The Seattle Real Estate Forecast for 2015

 

If you think the Seattle Seahawks are hot, just wait until you see the headlines in the coming months about the Seattle real estate market.  You’ll be reading Headlines like:

  • “Serious Housing Shortage Pushes Home Prices Higher”

  • “Buyers Frustrated With Multiple Offers”.  

Deja vu?  It’s coming again.

For nearly three years homes have been selling faster than new inventory coming on to meet the demand.  This means we have an even lower inventory of homes to choose from than last year.  Last summer we got a little relief from that trend, but certainly not enough to meet demand.  This has been going on since October 2011.

For a healthy Seattle market we need inventory to be closer to 5,000 units.  But today we have just about 1/2 of that.  This is the lowest number of homes for sale ever, or at least since the Multiple Listing Service has been keeping records.  

Currently home sales are at a healthy pace, but with the imbalance of available homes for sale and new listings coming on the market to meet demand, we could run out of inventory.

This will be an excellent market for home sellers to get top dollar for their home.  There will be serious upward pressure on home prices and multiple offers.  2015 will be the year that we blow past the record high prices during the peak of the bubble in 2007.  Accurate pricing will be crucial and the market will cause Appraisal issues, or a Delay of Game, or worse a Turn-Over – you  may lose the deal.  Giving more importance in working with experienced agents.

With interest rates now below 4%,  it is making it an even better time to buy a home.  Buyers are going to want to get in on these historically low interest rates before they go up – the big question is this:   Will they be able to find a home?  We work with the top lenders in the area with great programs for home buyers and first time home buyers.  It will be very important to have all your financing lined up before you go House-Hunting and we know how to make you look good against those multiple offers!  Because those multiple offers go into Over Time and you want to come out on the winning side in the end!

If you know someone who is looking to buy or sell and can benefit from 27 years of dedication and experience, forward this article to them or have them give us a call!   With a challenging market like today, now is the time when experience counts.   Jess and Julie Lyda 425-487-3001.
