When compared to March, 2009, three areas of Seattle’s eastside showed an increase in median prices including South Bellevue and Issaquah, Redmond and Carnation, and Kirkland. South Bellevue and Issaquah home prices remained steady for the third month in a row, which is the only area on the eastside to experience a consistent upswing in pricing.
The most significant decrease was in pricing was in West Bellevue, where median home values dropped by 22%. Most Seattle-eastside neighborhoods experienced a reduction in sales price.
Home sales, on the other hand, continued to be strong all over the eastside. Sales increases ranged from 18% in Redmond and Carnation to 154% on the plateau, Sammamish and Issaquah.
Twenty-one percent less homes are for sale on the eastside than last year. Although over 200 more homes are for sale than in February, which is typical for this time of year.
Seattle eastside home sales should continue to be strong through April. We’ll see what happens after that time, however, I don’t expect much to change for the higher price ranges. And nothing may change at all. We could continue to have a strong real estate market.
