Luxury Market Review


LU X U RY M A R K E T R E V I E W

A LOOK AT LUXURY Luxury Real Estate Trends, Q1+Q2 2017 With Western Washington’s economy thriving and local wealth rising, our high-end real estate market is on a roll. In the first half of 2017, we saw exceptionally strong growth and record-setting results in the luxury category. Sales of single family homes priced $2M+ rose dramatically, with a 40% increase in the number of units sold and a 43% increase in total sales volume over the same period last year. Further proof of the luxury segment’s strength: high-end homes sold 10% faster in the first two quarters of this year. Driven by demand from relocating executives and downsizing baby boomers alike, luxury condominium sales saw tremendous growth. The number of condos sold above $1M increased by 42% in Q1/Q2, and the number of condos sold above $2M shot up by 115%. High-end new construction homes proved very attractive to affluent buyers: total sales jumped by 85% in the first two quarters to $238 million. Tides were high in the luxury waterfront market as well: unit sales were up 45% and total sales volume rose by 47%. Please reference the last pages of this report for luxury waterfront statistics.

Our Local Market: Luxury Lives Here Western Washington continues to attract affluent home buyers from around the nation and world. Our economy, schools and amenities draw high-net-worth individuals to the region; our lifestyle, climate and views keep them here. With local companies thriving, the booming jobs sector supports some of the highest wages in the country. As a result, wealth creation in our region is at an all-time high. The luxury real estate market mirrors this growth, with record sales recorded so far this year. Lifestyle properties are attracting high-net-worth buyers, both locals who are “moving up” and those relocating from other markets. Record numbers of Seattle-area buyers are stretching into the luxury segment, in part due to record-high stock option values. Many non-resident buyers, especially those moving from the Bay Area, New York, Europe and Asia, still find Western Washington home prices relatively affordable. View properties – those overlooking water, mountains or skylines – remain a clear favorite among both sets of buyers. If you are a prospective home seller inclined to take advantage of the hot market for luxury properties, let us help you prepare, price and position your investment for maximum return. Our Global Luxury brand offers world-class marketing that spotlights your listing to affluent buyers from around the world.

Life at the Water's Edge Owning a Western Washington waterfront home represents the peak of luxury living. Comprising one quarter of all high-end home sales in our region, waterfront is the most glamorous and scrutinized residential market segment. With little inventory to choose from at any given time and with the best-situated homes changing hands infrequently, buyers of waterfront properties face unique challenges. To achieve their ownership goals, they must be more patient than the typical luxury home buyer and also be willing to pay a premium when a coveted property becomes available for purchase. In the first half of 2017, the market for luxury waterfront properties experienced dramatic growth. The number of homes sold in this category increased by 45% over the same period last year, while total sales reached $325 million, setting a Q1/Q2 record. Lake Washington led the way with 41 luxury waterfront sales and an average sold price of $4,355,834. There were 30 luxury waterfront sales along the shores of the Puget Sound, up an impressive 150% over the first half of 2016. Lake Sammamish had 11 luxury waterfront sales, up from six recorded in Q1/Q2 last year, with an 80.5% increase in total sales by dollar volume. The chart to the right details year-to-date market trends for luxury properties in various waterfront communities.
