(Click on the cities below to see real estate trends for the past 5 years.  You’ll find the median pricing for each city and whether the number of homes for sale and the number of sales went up or down.  The odds of selling a home in each area is a result of the number of homes for sale divided by the actual number of home sales.)

The plateau:  Sammamish, Issaquah, North Bend, and Fall City

The odds of selling a home were 16%.

Median sales price increased from $499,950 to $525,000.

The number of homes for sale dropped by 10% and sales were down by 27% from last year.

West Redmond/East Bellevue

The odds of selling a home were 23%.

South Bellevue/Issaquah

The odds of selling a home were 18%.

Median price decreased from $610,000 to $599,994.

The number of homes for sale dropped by 15% and sales were down by 3%.

Woodinville/Bothell/Kenmore/Duvall/North Kirkland

The odds of selling a home were 14%.

Median price remained essentially equal to last year, $419,950 to $419,973 this year.

The number of homes for sale declined by 3% and sales were down by 23%.

The number of homes for sale declined by 19% and sales were down by 28%.

West Bellevue

The odds of selling a home were 14%.

Median pricing was UP from $849,000 to $890,000.

The number of homes for sale decreased by 24% and sales decreased by 25.5%.

Redmond/Education Hill/ Carnation

The odds of selling a home were 9%

Median pricing decreased from $529,950 to $474,950.

The number of homes for sale decreased by 4% and sales decreased by 42%.

Although real estate numbers are mostly down on Seattle’s eastside, 3 areas showed an increase in median prices and one area remained similar in pricing to last June.  West Bellevue, the Sammamish plateau areas, and Woodinville, North Kirkland, Bothell and Kenmore had a 5% increase in sales prices.   Last month, West Bellevue was the only area with an increase in median pricing over last year and that was at 17%.

The three other Seattle-eastside neighborhoods experienced a reduction in sales prices.   These areas are South Bellevue, Redmond and Bellevue near Microsoft, and the downtown area of Redmond.

The number of homes for sale is near the highest for this year, but still 11% less than the number of homes  for sale on the eastside last year, so that’s a good thing.

I expect the numbers to be down over the next month or two as summer is one of the slower times in Eastside real estate.  Traditionally, people take a lot of time to enjoy the sun and the outdoors, since it is so fleeting.
