Hey everybody, welcome to week 44 of our Monday Market Update. And this is the first full week in January. I think we’re off to a pretty good start. As you know, we will be watching the year week by week to see how things progress. That’s how we spot trends. But interest rates remain phenomenal. 30 year fixed, 2.75%, 15 year fixed, 2.125%, crazy low money. And jumbo has ticked up just a tad at 3%. And then, so Steve, what has happened in Northwest Seattle real estate?
So last week in North Seattle, there were a total of 110 homes for sale. There were 32 new homes, 78% of those were vacant. 18 had a review date, which was 56% of homes had a review date. Pending sales, nine homes went pending for an average market time of 23 days. And nine homes went pending inspection, for an average market time of 49 days. And 33 homes closed in Northwest Seattle with an average market time of 29 days. And then I think the average price-per-square-foot dropped just a little bit to $480 a square foot. So overall, not bad.
No, yeah, and it will be interesting to watch it week by week. So this first full week in January, homes going under contract did not keep up with homes coming on the market. But that’s kind of to be expected. Buyers are just starting to come back into the marketplace. So that should increase as the year ticks on.
But also, we have a super cool seminar coming up at the end of January. It is Thursday, the 28th at 5:30 p.m. And it is Housing Options When Downsizing. I think that title pretty much covers it. We’re gonna talk about… I think it was a pretty descriptive title. We are going to cover your housing options when downsizing.
So we’ll talk about 55 and over communities, and tell you about those communities and the pros and cons. I’ll talk about condominiums, whether that’s the right option for you. And of course, if you wanna stay in your own neighborhood, what are the options for you? So anyhow, it should be a lot of fun, it’s very interactive. So definitely bring your questions. And if you’re interested, just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will get you on the list and get you that Zoom link. I think that’s it.
Have a great week, everybody
