King County Home Trends. Active vs Pending, presented by John Fiala

Have you heard that there is less inventory in the housing market right now? A good way to look at your competition as a Seller and as a Buyer is to watch the Active Listings and Pending Home Sales (homes under contract). Look at the space between the green line and the yellow line below on the chart for King County Residential homes. Notice the difference in lengths of the green lines and yellow lines over a two year period. This year, there is much more competition for Buyers trying to purchase a home because the ratio between Active Listings and Pending Home Sales is much higher from two years ago. Sellers have the advantage based on the lack of inventory and the high demand of people looking to purchase a home. Do you wonder what your specific area looks like?  Just let me know how I can help.

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.
