Windermere Real Estate/Wall St., Inc.


Second Quarter April / May / June 2012 Sales volume, home prices around Washington state rising amid inventory shortages in many areas NWMLS, KIRKLAND, WA, July 5, 2012 – June may have been cooler and wetter than normal, but weather did not seem to deter home buyers and sellers around western Washington. "Close-in Seattle neighborhoods have been experiencing the most intense buyer activity since 2006," one broker remarked. Figures just released by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service show 8,577 sellers accepted offers on their homes and condominiums last month. That volume of pending sales across 21 counties was 13.8 percent higher than the same month a year ago, according to the MLS report. Closed sales also reflected signs of a recovering market, with upticks in both volume and prices. Through the first six months of 2012 closings are up 14.4 percent (29,777 versus mid-year 2011 figure of 26,034 closed sales). MLS members reported 6,214 closed sales of single family homes and condominiums during June, an improvement of 11.7 percent from twelve months ago, and the highest total since September 2007.
