Hey, so welcome to week 24 of our Monday market update. And the Seattle market, the greater Puget Sound market just remains a super hot seller’s market. And a lot of it is fueled by the amazing interest rates. So, as of last Friday, according to Katie McGovern from Wells Fargo: Conforming rates: 2.875%.
Jumbo was still at 3.125% But veterans, if you know of any veterans, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rate this low.
VA Loans: 2.25 for a VA 30 year, fixed-rate.
That’s crazy low and you should all be out buying. That’s all I have to say. Get out there and buy. It’s getting close to no interest. Oh my goodness! Yes, and then of course keybox showings have been up for the last two weeks. They’ve been averaging right around 58,000 keybox openings. And to put that in perspective, back in the first part of May, we were in kind of the mid 40s like 44, 45 keybox openings. So, we’ve been saying in the past that our spring market has moved to summer. And I think with those keybox openings that’s just showing that.
Last week in northwest Seattle, there were
194 homes for sale.
There were 55 new listings and 69% of those were vacant.
52 homes went pending and they have an average days on market of 11 days.
16 homes went pending inspection with an average market days of 14.
47 homes closed in northwest Seattle last week with an average market time of only 12 days.
And the average price per square foot was $496 compared to the previous week of $509.
But we don’t look at that terribly closely, because it fluctuates up and down each week. Yeah, I mean it’s basically been in this range from about the high fours, 484 to 510. That’s where it’s been averaging.
