coldwellbankerbain.com


Helping people buy and sell homes in the Pacific Northwest since 1972, Coldwell Banker Bain is an undisputed market leader, posting nearly $6 billion in sales in 2020. With 32 offices and more than 1,300 brokers in Washington and Oregon, plus a global reach that extends to 92,000 brokers in 43 countries, we’re not only one of the largest Coldwell Banker affiliates in the world, we’re also the most accomplished real estate company in the Northwest. Our commitment to knowledge, expertise and market insights consistently undergirds our reputation for excellence and service. An emphasis on global access in the luxury realm, combined with the power, reach and recognition of the Coldwell Banker brand, allows us to outsell and outperform our rivals, as we elevate the standard for marketing premier properties in the Puget Sound area and the Pacific Northwest. As important to us as business success— we also provide services in property management, commercial real estate, real estate investment and relocation management— is the understanding that real estate is more than just a transaction; it’s a key part of building safe, happy and prosperous lives for our clients, our brokers and their families.


JOHN DEELY executive VP of Operations

Reflecting on the second-quarter numbers, John Deely, Coldwell Banker Bain Executive Vice President of Operations, said, “We continue on a trajectory that will keep the Puget Sound region at the top of national lists for one of the hottest housing markets. Prices continue their climb with double digit increases in most of our markets, and inventory on hand at about two weeks in the larger areas. While we’re experiencing a bit of moderating activity in June, rather than that being an indication of a flattening of the market, we believe this is a result of our extreme heat events, a typical summer slowdown as schools let out and people start vacationing, and this year, the reopening of the country and discontinuation of COVID restrictions. The dramatic increase in prices and low inventory just continues in such a way that although we have more inventory coming on the market, it is immediately absorbed because of a demand that simply cannot be met. Affordability, especially for first-time homebuyers, continues to be a concern, and given indications from tech companies like Amazon and Microsoft to leasing large office spaces and hiring thousands of employees going forward in our region, drawing people from higher-priced markets like Silicon Valley who have a lot of money to spend, we don’t see much change in this scenario for buyers in the short term. Additionally, with national data of new household formations showing a shortage of more than 500,000 new homes per year for the entire decade, we have a nationwide shortfall of five million new homes. Without regulatory changes, we will not be able to quickly build our way out of this kind of shortfall. It’s a situation major cities and regions across the country will need to address going forward to ensure availability and affordability of homes.”

Q2 2021 MARKET REPORT

ALAN BERKWITT

assistant Principal Managing Broker of BELLEVUE “The Eastside residential market has seen significant rises in both appreciation and transaction volume,” said Assistant Principal Managing Broker Alan Berkwitt. “Multiple offers have become the norm over the course of a year, with many buyer contingencies waived. The average sales price is 12 percent above list, with several transactions exceeding that figure. The second quarter of 2020 saw a considerable fall in market sales following Governor Inslee’s Stay-atHome order, although the market continued to gain in part due to low inventory. The persistent scarcity of residential inventory on the Eastside, as well as the influence on property prices, was evident in the second quarter of 2021. When comparing the second quarters of 2020 and 2021, Eastside closed sales grew by slightly under 65 percent, while the median price increased by 26 percent (middle point not to be confused with average price). Eastside luxury had the highest rate of rise in sales, at 237.5 percent, for properties valued above two million dollars. Another factor to examine is the pre-pandemic second quarter of 2019 versus 2021. The percentage of increased sales stands at 44 percent. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index recorded annual price growth in excess of 18 percent for the Seattle market. Low interest rates, income growth, and an infusion of personnel relocating to Washington all contributed to the high demand. Many of the top 100 Best Places to Work on Glassdoor.com are based on the Eastside or have branch offices there. Historically, these organizations would relocate new staff throughout the year, but this practice was discontinued during the pandemic. Buyers are scrambling to acquire housing on the Eastside as employers require employees to return to work within the next few months. With low inventory, favorable loan interest rates, and prospering regional firms shifting staff to the Pacific Northwest, the third quarter is expected to be strong.

Q2 2021 MARKET REPORT

MIKE WINKLER

Principal Managing Broker of mercer island Said Mike Winkler, Principal Managing Broker of Coldwell Banker Bain of Mercer Island, “The market dynamics make real estate professionals sound like broken records, whether reading the local newspapers, the statistical reports each month from the NWMLS, or listening to the local TV news stations. The lyrics go like this—‘low inventory and high demand combined with low interest rates continue to drive up the market with multiple offers on nearly every right-priced home.’ Mercer Island closed unit numbers at the end of June were up 25.21%, with 149 homes closing by the end of the second quarter of 2021 and 119 closing in 2020. The average sales price was also up 30.58% for Q2, with this year’s average sold price coming in at $2,407,098 compared to $1,843,336 in 2020. The median sales price for sold properties through the end of June was also up 30.43%, with closed prices from the first half of 2021 coming in at $2,100,000, as opposed to $1,610,000 during the same period last year. There were 212 homes listed on Mercer Island in the first half of this year and 203 in the first half of 2020, an increase of 4.43%. The number of active listings available on June 30th was down 75.4% from the standing inventory at the end of Q2 last year (15 vs 61). Buyers who wanted to purchase on Mercer Island in 2020 and waited for the market to cool paid significantly more by the end of the second quarter in 2021 as evidenced by the closed sales numbers. The low inventory and high demand forced buyers to make difficult decisions quickly in a very competitive market. It is clear that as long as these market conditions remain, buyers simply can’t afford to sit on the sidelines unless they want to pay more. So far in 2021, we have experienced competitive offers on homes up to and including $8 million+, and in many cases, offering all cash.
