PACIFIC NORTHWEST SECOND QUARTER MARKET REPORT - 2017


SECOND QUARTER NUMBERS

Seattle, Wash (July 14, 2017) – Coldwell Banker Bain, a leading Pacific Northwest real estate market brokerage, releases its second quarter market report providing a variety of statistics for the sale of homes in neighborhoods and counties throughout the Puget Sound region, as well as for segments including luxury and condos. The second quarter report reflects activity between April 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017*. Observations by principal managing brokers working in each major market are also included. Reflecting on the second quarter numbers, Mike Grady, CB Bain President and COO, pointed out the hot spots: “Ballard/Green Lake is hot!! Compared to same quarter last year the inventory shrank almost 33%, with currently only 9 days of active inventory.” He continued, “Redmond is also hot… leading the way with a misery index of -41%, which is inventory that is 41% smaller than the same in the 2nd quarter in 2016.” Grady went onto say, “The King County Condo market has only 13 days of inventory in Seattle and 18 days on the

Eastside. Demand is high and inventories continue to shrink precipitously (-45.1% in Seattle and -29% on the Eastside) compared to the 2nd quarter of 2016.” He also added that, “The average price for a single family detached home on Mercer Island and in Magnolia now exceeds $1.8M, and $1.3M in Bellevue, Capitol Hill and Madison Park! The disparity between these areas compared to those areas to the north and to the south in the Puget Sound region continues to grow: Lynnwood (below $500K) and Everett (approx. $400K) to the North and Tacoma ($359K) and Puyallup ($332K) to the south are just not keeping up with the price increases in these King County markets. Although the distance between these communities remains the same as 30 years ago when prices diverged only 25% – 30%, commute times have separated these communities and affected the demand causing unusually incongruent pricing for such a close geography.” View Full PDF Report here.

2017 SECOND QUARTER MARKET REPORT

SINGLE FAMILY & CONDO

Average Sold Price (Nearest $000) “In the second quarter we saw multiple offers, aggressive buyer tactics, short market times and rapidly rising prices. Home and condo sales were hot, as reflected here: All Eastside communities in this report ended the quarter $1,316,000 with less inventory than they had at the end of Q2 2016. We are still playing $644,000 catch-up, despite more listings having come on the market in June and early July. Homes in good condition in highly desirable neighborhoods still receive $651,000 multiple offers, but only if they are priced right. If they are overpriced - or in poor condition - they may well meet the opposite fate. We advise our sellers $990,000 to be prudent with home prep and pricing given the increased competition. At $977,000 the same time, we advise our buyers - some of whom may have ducked out of the spring market due to fatigue or frustration - to $1,802,000 consider jumping back in while there are a few more choices. $953,000 Even with rising home prices, the third quarter may well be the best time for buyers to finally have a chance at owning a piece $893,000 of the Eastside.”

“We are feeling the volume of new listings being added to inventory and wondering if this is a normal seasonal increase or if it signals a change in the market. We have observed a few properties hitting their offer review date with no offers in hand. Also, we are seeing an increasing number of price reductions on properties with no activity. Sellers are pushing prices up as the result of previous bidding wars creating comparable sales in their locale but the buyer demand is still high and multiple offers still dominate the market.”

“Pierce County home prices showed another increase as we entered the summer months and have now eclipsed the all-time highs of 2007. With high demand and low inventory, this looks like the beginning of a sustained period of home price increases, with buyers still not showing any price reluctance. Buyers from more expensive markets up north continue to reevaluate their commutes to consider Pierce County’s relatively low prices. All buyers are focusing on new listings, though there are potential good values among listings that haven’t sold. Toward the end of this quarter, listing inventory made some headway against sales and grew to an eight-month high with 2,215 homes for sale. This is still below the June 2016 figure of 2,322, but is a welcome relief for buyers who are seeing a few more choices with each listing tour. Sales numbers decreased just slightly to 2009 levels, which is still $965,000 a new record for June. Well-priced new listings continue to experience a market frenzy.” – Stephanie Callen CB Bain Puyallup office

“We continue to see very low inventory, multiple offers and buyer fatigue. However, buyers this year are not giving up easily. They are doggedly determined to find their home and win their bid without giving up their protective rights, like inspections, financing, etc. Once again, we are experiencing low appraisals. We recently had a situation with a $30K undervalued appraisal on new construction. Our agent challenged the appraisal by doing a lot of research. Ultimately, the new appraisal value was raised $30K to the agreedupon sale amount. It took a lot of extra work but the lesson is, do the work and you have a far better chance of getting the value where it should be. Our Snohomish County economy remains strong and all indicators tell us this is not likely to change anytime soon.”

PORTLAND OREGON REGION

Portland, Oregon (July 14, 2017) – Coldwell Banker Bain, a leading Northwest real estate market brokerage, releases its second quarter market report providing a variety of statistics for the sale of homes in neighborhoods and counties in SW Washington and Oregon, as well as for segments including luxury and condos. This second quarter report reflects activity between April 1, 2017and June 30, 2017*.

Reflecting on the second quarter numbers, David Sly, Principal Managing Broker of the Portland Uptown and Lake Oswego office, pointed to interesting data trends: “Lake Oswego… at 144 days of inventory, it is the “fullest” inventory marketplace of those areas reported throughout the Northwest. Oregon market Inventories have been expanding, increasing from 12% (West Portland) to 44% (NE Portland) compared to the 2nd quarter of last year. Remarkably, across the river in Vancouver inventories are shrinking more like the Puget Sound area with some areas (East Clark County) down by almost 16%.

The condo market in both the SW Washington and Portland markets has experienced rising inventories of 10% and 29%, respectively, with 925 sales reported in the quarter in the 3-county Portland region.” View Full PDF Report here. — David Sly, Principle Managing Broker of Portland Uptown and the Lake Oswego CB Bain Office
