As a reminder, the requirements include:

DID YOU SEE ALL THE NEW CONDO LISTINGS IN SEATTLE?

No, and neither did we. As you likely know there have been many condo projects on the books for a few years now....but you know what happened. Covid was/is like a huge wet blanket over everything, from our jobs to family activity to getting on with our lives. But those condo projects are still there. some are limping along while others are just huge holes in the ground surrounded by rusty chain link fences. 

But there are still new re-sale condo listings in Seattle. I post them right below the big pic on SeattleCondo.com everyday. But if you want the ultimate edge in getting notified on any new listings that come on the market, just email me at brian@seattlehome.com. I'll set you up to receive notification every time a new listing comes on the market. After all, we at SeattleCondo are all about condos in Seattle as well as condos in Bellevue and the Eastside. Stay dry out there and keep the faith. Brian Wiegand

This is what our real estate market looked like in 2021

  • There were 107,354 closed real estate transactions of condominiums and single family homes with a total value of $75 million dollars.
  • The average sales price of houses and condos was $565k.
  • NWMLS Real estate Brokers added 117,948 listings over the course of the year with an increase of 7,349 listings over 2020.
  • By the end of 2021 there was only an average of two weeks supply of house and condos for sale, which is much less than the 4 to 6 months average inventory.

 

 

"Seattle and Bellevue Real Estate Prices Are Actually A Bargain"

 

So here we are. It's January 2022. The pandemic (with a small p) is still with us. We the people are still very polarized over political differences, to mask or not to mask, vaxmania. Major world powers are flexing in a belligerent way......and yet the Seattle real estate beat goes on.

I'm trying to have a "big picture" perspective on our local real estate market, but there are too many shiny things that keep getting in the way. Yet, when I manage to step back and focus on what is and what isn't, I keep coming back to the same conclusion... not necessarily yours or anyone else's. But my bottom line is this:

OUR GREATER SEATTLE AND SURROUNDING REAL ESTATE MARKET IS STRONG AND EXPECTED TO REMAIN SO

Yes, I know. A bold statement in bold type. But as I said, it's my opinion after over 20 years as a full time Broker in this market.

Here's how I got there. Interest rates are still at an all time low. It wasn't many years ago that rates were almost double what they are now. And guess what. Folks were still buying houses and condos at those rates. Now we have in greater Puget Sound so many of the dot coms that continue to expand and hire high priced talent. Those techy's move here and need a place to live. A major cause of our housing shortage, but not the only one.

And interest rates are still low. People with healthy incomes move here, buy homes and and this is what drives our real estate market up. There's simply not enough homes to go around, so when one comes on the market, well, it gets bid up, and this sets the benchmark for the house across the street when it comes on the market...and so on.

Add to this that this ex New Yorker believes that our local Seattle and Bellevue real estate prices are actually a bargain. Did your head explode? The fact is that New York and San Fransisco and all of the other major cities have much more expensive real estate than Seattle. This is not a right or wrong issue, it's just reailty.

Those who purchased homes here only 10 years ago have seen their property values double. So no need to go on about this. If I were you I would buy a home in Seattle or Bellevue ( or anywhere) sooner or later. Oh, and by the way, did I mention that rental prices are going up as well? So bite the bullet. Take the plunge. Get yours while you can.

I'm Brian Wiegand, Broker/Owner of SeattleHome.com and SeattleCondo.com. If you wish to talk about buying or selling a home just call or email me. Always happy to help. Keep the faith.
