Key takeaways for the month

Overall, the Seattle-area market looks to be realigning to usual seasonal trends, signaling a likely end to the extended pandemic peak

  • The Eastside shows strong signs of competition, indicated by flat median days on market month-over-month, and sale-to-list price ratio increasing for both single family homes/townhomes and condos. 
  • Condos on the Eastside saw an 81% jump in median sale price month-over-month, but this likely reflects the sale of a small number of high-priced homes rather than a “new normal” median price. 
  • Sale prices in Seattle have been fluctuating but trending up since the onset of the pandemic and are now in line with usual seasonal expectations. Condos saw an increase in median days on market that’s also typical of the slower season beginning in October.
