Monday NW Seattle Real Estate Market Update | February 1st, 2021
This week we start out talking about low interest rates. We recommend that if you are in a position where you can refinance, you should! Rates have remained phenomenally low over the past few months. You could lower your monthly mortgage payment like Steve just did!
As always, we let you know the housing numbers from the past week including Number of Listings, New Listings, Pendings, Solds, Price Per sq/ft and more. We also take a moment to check in on how the townhouse market is doing right now.
Next week we will be getting the Trendgraphix report. Trendgraphix is a leading provider of highly visual MLS data market trending and market share.These reports will allow us to pull much more detailed real estate information for NW Seattle and compare it to previous years, so stay tuned next week.
We hope you have a great week!

Hey, everybody welcome to week 47 of our Monday market update. And, you know, I feel like I don’t even need to talk about Rates cause all I need to say is they’re pretty amazing. So if you haven’t re-financed definitely think about doing that, but what I do wanna talk about so it’s really felt like a more robust seller’s market in January compared to last year. But when I looked at the first three weeks in January, comparing 2021 to 2020 what’s interesting is new listings are up by 12 and a half percent and pending properties are up by 12 and a half percent. So they’re both up at the same. So I don’t know why it feels more robust but next week, the stats will be out from Trendgraphix. So I’ll be able to really compare January, 2021 to January, 2020 for just Northwest Seattle. And I will have that report for you all next week. But what has happened this past week, Steve?
last week in Northwest Seattle, there were 122 listings for sale. And that’s exactly what it was the week before. So that number is unchanged. There were 45 new listings. 78% of those listings were vacant. 33 homes had a review date. That’s 73% of the listings and a vast majority of those homes that had a review date were not Townhomes. Townhomes did not very often have a review date Townhomes have slowed down the activity on the Townhomes is definitely-
Yeah, that’s been a trend that we’ve been seeing. That’s kind of surprising. Cause you know Townhomes are kind of a great affordable way to get into a neighborhood, right? So that’s, that’s a little surprising to me.
And pending sales, 33 homes went pending average market time 13 days. Homes that went pending inspection- There were 10 of those and those had an average market time of 44 days. 26 homes closed with an average market time of 22 days. And the average price per square foot dropped a little bit to $485 a square foot. But that number’s kind of volatile from week to week. So not a big, not a big concern.
Right? So yeah. So hope everybody enjoys this first week in February tomorrow is Groundhog’s day. Hopefully what is it? Six more months or six more weeks of winter. I forget.
Not months! weeks! We’d be into July by the way, Sandra mentioned refinancing, Re-finance, if you can because I just refinanced and my house payment’s gonna go down quite a bit. At least it’s enough to cover the increase in the taxes that went up. So that was my big incentive. But yeah, refinancing it- It doesn’t make any sense not to do it.
That’s true. Have a great week everyone.
