Walk Score did an interesting story this week on the best cities in the country for public transit.  Those of us in Seattle know that while our light rail is improving, we've got a long way to go with buses and cross-lake traffic. Still, though, Seattle came through on the West coast as the secon...
2013 was one of the strongest years the Seattle real estate market has seen in a long time.  With double digit gains in almost every category of total sales figures and median home prices, the greater Seattle metro took back a large portion of the equity that had been lost during the real estate ...
The tight real estate inventory in the greater Seattle market continues to have a constricting effect on home buyers' choices.  Home sellers in the region have been in a strong negotiation position since early 2013, and it appears that trend will continue. Seattle itself has just 1.5 months of in...
Home sales in Redmond continue a strong climb as we head into the usually slower winter months.  Total sales, pending sales, and median home prices are all outpacing last year's numbers by significant margins. Redmond Residential Home Sales Totals, Median Home Prices The median home price for res...
As Kirkland home sales in 2013 continue to overshadow 2012's numbers, we're seeing a significant upward shift in local home prices.  The median price of a residential property (single family home) in Kirkland in October rose to $528,148. Median Home Prices, Total Sales For Single Family Homes In ...
While we know that most of you may spend rainy winter mornings trying to avoid walking outside, our city does rank quite highly in terms of close access to all of the things most Seattle residents need.  Walk Score recently released their rankings for the Top 10 Most Walkable Cities, and Seattle ...
Home prices in the greater Bellevue real estate market have been on the increase throughout 2013, and the trend seems to be continuing as we head into the end of the year.  Coupled with increasing numbers of pending home sales, there doesn't seem to be the typical fall slowdown setting in on the ...
Sales of waterfront homes in the Seattle metro region in 2013 continue to outpace the previous year's sales, as we head into the fall.  We're seeing a surprising uptick in pending sales, where we'd usually start to see a stronger drop-off at this point in the year.  Pending October sales of water...
I wrote a piece recently on the issue of city governments planning to start seizing underwater mortgages.  This is a misguided attempt at helping homeowners, but we all know how well politicians do with real estate policy when they don't consult real estate professionals first. You can read the f...
Year-over-year pending home sales continue to show strength for the Seattle real estate market.  In August there were 752 residential pending sales in the city, up from just 598 in the same month last year.  That 25.8 percent gain is just another indicator that the local market is in a long-term ...
