Monday ​NW Seattle Real Estate Market Update | August 10th, 2020

Seattle’s Real Estate Market is still hot hot hot! This is especially good for Sellers, but Buyers also have an advantage right now due to the historically low interest rates. 

In fact affordability hasn’t been this high since 2016!

As always, we keep you up to date on the current interest rates as well as the real estate numbers in the NW Seattle area.

 To find out what your home is worth in today’s market: Visit

Welcome to Week 22, and the market continues to just be phenomenal for sellers. And it’s great for buyers too, because right now this is one of the highest affordability that we’ve had since 2016, and home prices have been steadily going up for the last 97 months, but because interest rates have been steadily going down, the affordability index is pretty good for buyers, and interest rates right now are 3% for a 30 year conforming, 2.5% for a 15 year conforming, and 3.125 for jumbo.

The NW Seattle Real Estate Market is hot, hot, hot. So in Northwest Seattle last week, there were

201 homes for sale.

There were 72 new listings, and 72% of those listings were vacant.

Pending homes. 52 homes went pending and their average days on market were 13 days.

Homes that went pending inspection, 15 homes. And those had an average market time of 38 days.

Closed sales, 55 homes closed in Northwest Seattle with an average market time of 20 days.

Average price per square foot was $493, which isn’t really that much different from the previous week.

It’s interesting though, the number of vacant homes actually jumped up quite a bit, ’cause I think last week or the previous week, it was 60% and now it’s 72%. And you know, my theory, which is why we started tracking this, my theory was that as our infection rates went up, that vacant homes should go up.
