Real estate sales numbers are down on Seattle’s eastside, with the exception of one area.  The East Bellevue and Redmond area near Microsoft showed a slight increase in the number of homes sold.  This area was also the only area to show an increase in median price, number of homes on the market (not so good), and number of homes sold.  However, median pricing was up in 3 other areas, South Bellevue and Issaquah,  Kirkland, and Redmond and Carnation.

The number of homes for sale on Seattle’s eastside is the highest for this year, but should be experiencing a downward swing as we head into fall. Right now, though, there are a lot of choices out there and not as many buyers to compete with.  Good buys are out there if you take your time and check out the homes for sale.
