Welcome to week 37 of our Monday Market Update.
Interest rates kind of remained unchanged, for the most part. Jumbo rates came down just a little bit, from 3% last week to 2.875. Conforming, 30-year, 2.75, and for the last seven weeks in a row, 15-year conforming and VA, 30-year fixed were at 2.25, which is still crazy, crazy, crazy cheap money. Inventory levels keep kind of falling. Week by week, they’ve been coming down, this was the lowest we’ve seen it in a little while. Do you wanna go over what the stats are?
I would love to go over Northwest Seattle stats. So, last week, there were 173 homes for sale in Northwest Seattle. There were 34 new listings, 76% of them were vacant, and 53% of those homes had a review date. And then, pending sales, 32% homes went pending, with an average of 13 days on the market. Pending inspection, 14 homes went pending inspection, with an average of 28 days on the market. And homes that closed/sold, 48 homes, that’s impressive, with an average to-market time of 26 days. And then, average price per square foot crept up a bit, to $505 a square foot.
Yeah, that’s actually the highest it’s been in quite a while. And then, last week, we started tracking how many homes had review dates, and, I think, last week, it was 63%, this week, it was what? 53, I think? 53, yeah.
Yeah, so it’s coming down, and we’ve been noticing that, as the market has been kind of slowing down a little bit, we’ve been seeing fewer homes have review dates. Yes, it is slowing down, but it’s still a super, super hot seller’s market. And then, too, if you’re curious what your home might be worth, definitely click below, we are happy to put together a market analysis for you. Never any obligation in chatting with us or meeting with us, Steve and I are pretty easy peasy. I mean, really, how can a girl who has 13 pet pigeons not be pretty easy peasy?
Have an awesome Thanksgiving, everybody, and stay safe out there.
