In Seattle, we are seeing buyer demand coming forward. Yet given the historically low interest rates, the local market needs additional listings to meet pent-up demand from the backlog of buyers. Due to the COVID-19 situation, there were fewer new listings in April versus April 2019, which leads to fewer homes going under contract as well. However, the sales activity intensity of homes selling within the first 30 days is aligned with last year’s high level for homes priced up to $1.5 million. You still need to be Buyer Ready to get a home in today’s market!
In Seattle’s luxury market, sales activity intensity is strong from $1 to $1.5 million, healthy from $1.5 million to $3 million and selective above.
