How Many Real Estate Sales Were in Your Seattle-Eastside Neighborhood in August,

Seattle-eastside real estate sales results were so similar during June, July, and August I could have posted the same report with just a few exceptions each month!  Overall, 23% of the available homes sold in August, the same as June and July!

[googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Eastside+of+Seattle&aq=&sll=47.610377,-122.200679&sspn=0.123598,0.359459&vpsrc=0&g=Bellevue,+WA&ie=UTF8&hq=Eastside+of&hnear=Seattle,+King,+Washington&t=m&ll=47.615847,-122.302272&spn=0.338201,0.11521&output=embed&w=425&h=350]

The only significant change happened in West Bellevue and East Bellevue and the Microsoft area around Redmond.  Both these areas had fewer home sales in August than in July.  It was most noticeable in the neighborhoods around Microsoft where sales have been consistently strong.  In July, 38% of the homes sold and in August the sales numbers dropped back to 24%.  The area still had the best return on the eastside, but it was more in line with other eastside neighborhoods.

There’s a good real estate market out there.  The last time we saw a similar real estate market was back in the years between 1998-2002.  The market during those years was what we considered to be a “normal” market,  not a crazy market.  Once again, we see a more “normal” market today.
