Pending Sales up +15% vs LY!

I’m still amazed at the residential housing market’s resiliency through all that his happening in our economy.

Cliff notes below from our designated broker, Laura Smith

Expect more new listings. Expect more new pending sales. Historically March to July are the five months with the most new listings (10 year average for King County Residential shown in table below).  The coronavirus likely delayed new listings by 45 to 60 days. What will happen with more new listings?  More new sales. My guess is starting in July number of sales in 2020 will exceed the number of sales in 2019. 

King County Residential Only for the weeks ended Wednesday (5/27/20):

Summary (details below):

The number of new pending sales in the last seven days exceeded the same week in prior year.

  • Expect next week for sales to be between 80% and 100% of the prior year.
  • Memorial Day under the stay order had less impact on sales than Memorial Day with no stay order.

Number of King county pending sales increased for the last nine weeks:266, 309, 367, 460, 489, 508, 598, 622, and 645.

We need inventory! Inventory is down over 40% and sales are equal to a year ago.

Months Supply of Inventory is low enough to make multiple offers commonplace:

  • King County is 0.9 > down 40% from a year ago (1.6).
  • Seattle is 0.9 > down 53% from a year ago (1.9).
  • Eastside is 1.0 > down 50% from a year ago (2.0).

Skydiving for the WRE Foundation!

Maybe the scariest thing I’ve ever done!

But I’m so proud of our Wedgwood crew that raised almost $2000 for our Windermere Foundation by jumping out of a plane!

The Johnson’s Yellowstone 2019 + ID + WY + MT!

Yes, Yellowstone was amazing, awe inspiring and perfect for our family right now! But the journey is the thing. 2100 miles driven in a VW Bus, thank you PeaceVans! 5 states checked off the list. 9 bears, hundreds of Bison and a quick glimpse of a coyote. And I think we’ve experienced enough geysers, pools, mud pots & thermal activity to last, you know, a lifetime 😀. These memories will stick with us forever. The Johnson’s Yellowstone 2019 + ID + WY + MT! #ExperienceYellowstone#johnsonfamilytrip2019 #pvr_wallawalla#yellowstone2019 #johnsontrip#afterschooltrip #familymemories #vanlife

From Istanbul to Seattle!

The best, best part of my job is when I get to handover the keys to a first time home buyer! And this time Yasemin came all the way from Istanbul and has made a life here in Seattle and has now bought her first home!

Her mom is even here from Istanbul to help her move in!

It gets me a little choked up when someone gets into their first place and they’re so excited just to walk through the door! Best feeling and best part of my job!

Welcome home Yasemin!

Humble Design Housewares Drive for the Homeless

Sunday, March 10th from 11 – 2 p

Windermere – Wedgwood back parking lot – 8401 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115

This is an incredibly proactive way we can all help the homeless in our community.

We are asking all of our clients, friends, neighbors and family to bring us household items, see list below, to help the homeless in Seattle.

 

Humble Design takes donated items and furnishes homes for people that are experiencing homelessness. 

They have an amazing track record – when a previously homeless person moves into their first home and that home is furnished, they only have a 1% chance of becoming homeless again in the first year!

 

Please bring your donations to our office on Sunday, March 10th

Or, I will come pick up your donations and deliver them for you! 

 

Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness in helping the homeless members of our community.

Robert.
