Bellevue Washington Has A Strong Week in Pending Sales, Presented by John Fiala

This chart looks at the active listings and pending sales for the date from 10/15/12 to 10/21/12. The pending sales (under contract) are for the previous seven days.  This shows where the market is hot and who can have an advantage in the market by location and price point, essentially where the fish are biting in real estate.

If you have “Bellevue” in your address, your area had the highest percentage of homes go under contract for the week at 17%. Normally that title goes to North Seattle. Notice in Bellevue the price range from $250,000 to $349,999. There were five homes in each price range at the start of the week and by the end of the week, four of them were under contract with only one still Active. If you are a seller in that price range, the fish are biting. Buyers, you have competition in that price range in Bellevue.

Of the five areas that I track, North Seattle had the highest percentage of homes go under contract with 21%. In Redmond, only 8% of homes went under contract. The hot price ranges for Sellers are in the red and yellow boxes below. You can see that in Kirkland, there are currently two homes active in the price range of $250,000 to $299,999 with 5 homes going under contract last week. You can look at your competition by price range and by your area to help you make an educated decision about listing your home or coming up with a strategy to buy a place. How does your area look?

King County Real Estate Market Trends

The chart below looks at the last five years of King County Residential homes. You can see how the inventory fluctuates during the year. The inventory normally increases after the New Year and decreases in the winter months. Currently, this is not the case. Inventory is down significantly from last year and from the preceding five years. Notice the yellow line below, this gap between the new listings and pending home sales has decreased dramatically since the height of the market in July 2007. The amount of new inventory is not keeping up with demand, and in some areas there is appreciation occurring. Pending home sales (under contract) are in the orange line below. We are at the same level of Pending home sales today as the height of the market in 2007 with half the inventory available. Buyers who have been waiting for the bottom of the market are starting to come off of the fence and purchase homes. In some areas and price ranges, there are multiple offers and escalation clauses in contracts. If your home is in a hot area for Buyers, it could be a great time to put your home on the market. If you are curious about your home or your area, please let me know how I can help.
