LUXURY MARKET REVIEW

A LOOK AT LUXURY

Annual Real Estate Market Recap

With Western Washington’s economy continuing to thrive and local wealth maintaining its upward momentum, our luxury real estate market proved to be robust with exceptional growth and record-setting results. Sales of single family homes priced $2M+ rose dramatically in 2017, with a 36.3% increase in the number of units sold and a 38.7% increase in dollar volume over the previous year. The average market time for high-end properties decreased by 15.7%, further proof of the luxury segment’s strength. Driven by demand from relocating executives and downsizing baby boomers alike, luxury condominium prices saw a slight increase of 1.9% in average price. The actual number of condos selling above $1M dipped slightly by 10.9% in 2017, with total dollar volume following suit and dropping by 9.2%. This decrease is due primarily to a lack of condo inventory. High-end new construction homes proved very attractive to affluent buyers; total sales in this segment rose by 68.2% for the year.


THE YEAR AHEAD

A look at what’s to come.

In 2018, we fully expect Western Washington will continue to attract home buyers from around the nation and the world. Its robust economy, top-rated schools and vast amenities draw high-net-worth individuals to the region. The lifestyle, climate and picturesque views make them stay. With local companies thriving, the booming jobs sector supports some of the highest wages in the country. As a result, wealth creation in the region is at an all-time high and maintains its upward momentum. The luxury real estate market soared with record sales recorded for 2017 and we fully expect this trend to continue through 2018. Lifestyle properties are attracting high-net-worth buyers, both locals who are “moving up” and those relocating from other markets. A record number of Seattle-area buyers are stretching into the luxury segment, in part due to record-high stock values. Non-resident buyers, especially those moving from the Bay Area, New York, Europe and Asia, continue to find Western Washington home prices relatively affordable. View properties – those overlooking water, mountains or skylines – remain coveted 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 across the world.


LUXURY MARKET REVIEW

It is an exciting time to list and sell high-end homes in Western Washington. Sales of homes at $2M+ rose dramatically over the previous year, with a 36% increase in units sold and a 39% increase in sales volume to $2.2 billion. Though the average purchase price of a luxury home was relatively at compared to the previous year, the upper-end market moved fast.

previous year. Total sales volume saw a whopping 68% jump while the average sold price was up 7% despite slightly longer average market times. Who’s buying Western Washington’s luxury homes? Local tech employees who are stretching their real estate investments because their companies’ stock options keep rising in value.

LUXURY MARKET REVIEW

Life at the Water’s Edge Tides are high in the luxury waterfront market. From Lake Sammamish to the San Juan Islands, 2017 saw record-high activity. The volume of waterfront homes purchased at $2M+ and above soared 33% over the previous year’s volume, to over $700M. Coveting the waterfront lifestyle, wealthy buyers flexed their financial muscles. The total volume of sales grew by 25.8% year-over-year, to almost half a billion dollars. Seattle had $80M in luxury waterfront home sales last year. Units of waterfront homes sold also increased by 33%. Waterfront buyers were quick to make their purchases, with the number of days a home spent on the market dropping by 30.3%. Regardless, wealthy buyers will continue to covet the waterfront lifestyle and as a result, a home on Puget Sound, Lake Sammamish or Lake Washington will always command top dollar.
