Will Seattle Remain a Strong Seller’s Market?
We have been experiencing a strong Seller’s Market here in Seattle recently. A few questions that we are getting from our clients are:
Will our market keep up it’s current pace in the Seller’s favor?
Will this cause a crash like in 2008?

Can our local real estate market keep up its pace in the seller’s favor? And will this cause a crash like in 2008? Is the election going to cause a crash? We continue to get these questions over and over from people, and the bottom line is that no one has the answers. But what I can do is let you know what is happening right now in our real estate market. Many homes that are selling in Northwest Seattle are selling quickly for or at above asking price. Why is this happening? Well, let’s dive into it.
Hi, I’m Steve Hill with Sandra Brenner with the BrennerHill Team at Windermere Real Estate. What we do know is that, just as predicted from real estate experts and advisors earlier in the year, that we would a V-shaped recovery, which means that the market drastically dropped and slowed down when the pandemic hit. But they predicted that once things got back to normal or once our new normal set in, that the housing market would recover. As seen here from this graph from the Housing Market Recovery Index, we see that it has. This index looks at four components from the market: demand, supply, price, and time on market. The index is showing that we are now exceeding levels prior to the pandemic. Data from the Mortgage Bankers Association, Zillow, and The National Association of Realtors shows that leading indicators that determine a strong market like showing times, purchase applications, pending sales, existing home sales, new home sales are all up, indicating that we are in a strong market.
Also, factors like inventory levels for both traditional inventory and new construction are down. We have limited inventory, which again is an indication of a strong market in the favor of sellers. So, although I cannot predict what will happen in the future, just as no one can, what I do know is that right now we are seeing a very strong real estate market.
