Review: 2011 First Quarter Jan/Feb/Mar From the Gardner Report, First Q 2011 Volume XIII — Seattle, WA. Our region is improving economically and I fully anticipate that we will fare better than the rest of the nation as we emerge from the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Job creation will be from the center out (i.e. starting in the Central Puget Sound) and this will be the same pattern when it comes to real estate prices. It is interesting to look at available inventory levels as I undertake this analysis. On an individual county basis, as well as combined, we have not seen the market increase its inventory levels as is expected in a normalized market. I would suggest that this is a function of sellers waiting to see improved conditions relative to home values before committing to listing their homes for sale.
