How did September, 2009 compare to September, 2010 in your neighborhood?

(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, so if 10 out of 100 homes sold, the odds of selling would be 10/100 or 10%)

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

The odds of selling a home were 13%.

Median sales price increased from $493,995 $500,000.

The number of homes for sale increased by 15% and sales were down by 25% from last year.

West Redmond/East Bellevue

The odds of selling a home were 17%.

Median sales price decreased to $464,750 from $499,500.

The number of homes for sale was up by 15% and sales were down by 25%.

South Bellevue/Issaquah

The number of homes for sale dropped by 8% and sales were down by 4%.

Woodinville/Bothell/Kenmore/Duvall/North Kirkland

Median pricing increased from $449,950 to $499,925.

The number of homes for sale increased by 5% and sales decreased by 2%.

The real estate sales numbers are down on Seattle’s eastside, which is no big surprise to many of us.  However, again we see median pricing up in 3 out of 7 neighborhoods.  Don’t get too excited though.  The median pricing is based on the homes that sold that month, not on the trend for the whole year.  I can safely say median pricing is down since last year all over the eastside, even if a month or two shows an increase.  We have to look at the overall trend for the year.

Sales were down by a lot, 30% in West Bellevue.  In East Bellevue/Redmond near Microsoft and on the Sammamish plateau, sales were down by 25%.  These are big numbers.

The number of homes for sale on Seattle’s eastside is starting to head downward.  (This is a good thing.) There are 400 fewer homes on the market in King County than just a few weeks ago.  I expect to see that number continue to drop.
