Home prices in the Seattle area continued to rise in June, with an increasing real estate inventory and continued demand from home buyers.  While the number of active listings has finally increased this month, the total crop of available homes is still fairly low at just around 2 months of inventory. King County Median Home Prices Real estate values in King County rose to a median home price of $385,000 in June.  This was a 2.3 percent increase over May's home sales.  Compared to June of 2012, median home prices have risen 11.6 percent, a striking turnaround for a market that had seen more than five years of stagnant or declining prices. In the city of Seattle, prices rose 0.4 percent in June, a modest gain but still significant because of the continued streak of appreciation for the ye...

Pending home sales in Seattle have taken off in recent months, with the number of signed contracts dwarfing the number we saw one year ago.  For the month of May, Seattle had 885 pending sales.  That's an increase of 62 over April's pending home sales, a 7.5 percent increase. Seattle Active Real Estate Listings vs. Pending Listings, Monthly Home sales are alway up in Spring as the normal real estate cycle takes its effect, but the increases we're seeing this year are far more than just a cyclical bump.  In May of 2012 there were just 703 pending homes in Seattle.  Compared to May of 2013, that's a 25.8 percent gain in total transactions.  The chart above illustrates what all of those new pending home sales are doing to the amount of active inventory for sale. As I've discussed before, t...

Dragon Boating on Lake Union in Seattle, WA How I Discovered Dragon Boating I moved to Seattle, WA from Los Angeles, CA last January. I didn't know anyone, so I was constantly looking for ways to meet new people. My father suggested I use a website called Meetup.com, which allows individuals to meet other people in person with common interests. With an interest in hiking, I joined a group on Meetup called Bellevue & Seattle Hiking & Dragon Boating. After previously living in Los Angeles for 5 years, I didn't own the right clothing for spring hiking, so I decided to check out Dragon Boating. To my surprise, the Seattle Flying Dragons were offering a deal that allowed me to join the club on the water 3 times for free. Sundays are geared more for beginners, so I signed up. My Experience Wi...

Seattle's best builders are asking us what way should they go?  Artifical grass or real grass?  I have been pretty impressed with the look and feel of the modern artificial grass.  Growing up my neighbors actually put Astro Turf down in their front yard.  Basically was concrete with  a laywer of industrial carpet that looked like blades of grass.  It was ugly ... and faded, but great for wiffleball. What would you go with for your home if you had a chance to do it all over with today's technology?  Artificial or Real?   JR McGee Seattle Realtor, Managing Broker Alchemy Real Estate, KW 4 West, LLC JR@AlchemyRealEstate.com 206-790-1019 (Seattle Residential Real Estate) – Every Home or House Currently Available (Seattle Commercial Real Estate) – Seattle's most connected and informed commer...
