Which Eastside City had the Fastest Selling Homes In October, 2011?

 
Homes in East Bellevue and Redmond near Microsoft sold the fastest on Seattle’s eastside in October. Homes sold in under 2 months, at 59 days. Market time for the other eastside cities, ranged from 99-117 days or just shy of 4 months.  This is a reasonable market time as it shows a more of a balanced market between buyers and sellers.  It’s actually a normal market and is better for “both sides of the table.”

The odds of selling a home in the Redmond and East Bellevue areas stood at 30%, which also was the strongest absorption rate to be found on the eastside.*  Chances of selling ranged from 19-26% in the other eastside cities.

 
The Redmond and East Bellevue area near Microsoft comes out on top for market time and a higher absorption rate because of more affordable housing, good jobs, an easier commute and good schools.  With the main Microsoft campus in Redmond right on the Bellevue line, there are lots of jobs right there.  In addition, there’s easier freeway and bus access to Seattle than in the outlying suburbs.
 
The higher price point in West Bellevue means fewer buyers can afford to live there.  Affordability issues increase the market time.  Longer market time here is a function of pricing, not desirability.  West Bellevue is considered to be one of the best locations on the eastside.
 
Two of the areas had an increase in the median pricing, Redmond and East Bellevue and Redmond and Education Hill.  Changes in median pricing, however, need to be looked at over a period of months since the median price for this month reflects the sales for this month only.
 
Why is market time important?  It’s one indication of the desirability and affordability of an area.  Both are key to future growth and appreciation.  People like to live in convenient areas with good schools and affordable housing.

Is Now a Good time to Sell Your Seattle Eastside Home?

Is this a good time to sell your Seattle eastside home?  If you’re a seller on Seattle’s eastside, the numbers are on your side.  This is the second week in a row with less than 10,000 homes on the market in King County, a first for this year!  The competition has pulled up the “for sale” sign, is battening down the hatches for the winter and planning for the holidays .

So plan your Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays.  Don’t give the holidays up and don’t give up the idea of selling your home now if that’s what you want to do.  With fewer homes on the market, your competition for buyers is far less.  Plus, the buyers who are out during the holiday season are buyers who are serious about buying a home. They don’t have time to waste.  They’re not casually looking for a home.  They’re in a buying mode.

How Many Seattle Area Real Estate Sales Were Distressed Sales?

How much of the Seattle area real estate market is made up of distressed sales, sales in which the property is bank owned or a seller is required to obtain approval from the bank in order to sell?

Seattle Area Distressed Real Estate Sales

Total Number of Distressed Real Estate Sales in the Seattle Area

 

In the third quarter of 2011, Seattle and the eastside suburbs were holding their own in the distressed sale market, while Pierce and Snohomish Counties had the toughest time. There’s a huge difference in how each of the 4 counties surrounding Seattle were doing with respect to distressed home sales.  Almost 50%, 47% to be exact, of the real estate sales in Snohomish County were  distressed properties.  Snohomish County is directly north of King County, which is where you’ll find Seattle.  Snohomish County is home to a Boeing plant, shipping, biotech firms, and  a navy base.  Pierce County is home to Tacoma, with its huge waterfront devoted to shipping, and Fort Lewis, the army base. 

Although each of the counties has an economic center, King County with Seattle and the eastside cities of Bellevue and Redmond is the true economic hub of the region.  These areas are home to Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft, Costco, Starbucks and a host of other companies.   Consequently, the Eastside and Seattle have the smallest number of distressed sales.    More jobs and a good commute equal less distressed sales.

How many homes sold in June, 2011 in your neighborhood?

How Many Real Estate Sales Were in Your Seattle-Eastside Neighborhood in June, 2011?

[googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Bellevue,+WA&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=23.403932,58.271484&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Bellevue,+King,+Washington&ll=47.610377,-122.200679&spn=0.310148,0.910492&z=10&output=embed&w=425&h=350]

How many homes sold in June, 2011 in your neighborhood?

June continued to be a strong month for real estate sales on Seattle’ eastside.  In fact, June may have been the strongest month for real estate sales on Seattle’s eastside in four years.  The Puget Sound Business Journal stated more homes sold this month than in recent months.  Every area did far better than previous months and previous years.   The Redmond and Bellevue area around Microsoft led the pack with almost 40% of the homes selling.  Almost every other area had a minimum of 20% of the homes selling.  More homes are selling than we’ve seen in years, but there are still a lot of homes that are languishing on the market.  Know your competition, so your home will land in the 20%+ homes that are selling.

A past client of mine is moving back to the eastside after about 5 years.  He was really surprised to hear that the homes near Microsoft are actually more affordable than those in South Bellevue.  The Bellevue Schools are getting a lot of press because several of the high schools are landing on top 100 lists of the top high schools.  But in reality, parts of Bellevue have  been more expensive for years because of the easy I-90 access to Seattle.  This may explain why the area around Microsoft is usually the hottest real estate market.  It’s a great location, close to jobs, has good schools, and slightly more affordable housing prices.

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%)

How Strong Were June, 2011 Real Estate Sales on Seattle's Eastside?

Home Sales on Seattle's Eastside Through June, 2011

Seattle-Eastside Real Estate Sales Through June, 2011

How strong were June, 2011 real estate sales on Seattle’s Eastside?  This summer’s real estate market is going to stay stronger than what we usually see during a Seattle summer. Traditionally, the highest number of homes for sale during a year comes near the end of July.  With this increased competition, it can make it more challenging to sell your home.  Although the number of eastside homes for sale has increased each month, the increase is nothing like the numbers we’ve seen during June of the last few years.

This year, the number of homes for sale is increasing, but at a much slower pace than last year.  In King County as a whole, there are 11,320 properties for sale.  Last year at the end of July, there were 14,639 properties on the market. This translates to 33% fewer homes on the market in King County this year.  On the eastside, there were 15% less homes for sale in June.  Since there’s still a great selection of homes for sale, the smaller number of available homes increases the odds of a home selling.

In fact, we had multiple offers on two listings this week alone.  I find we have a lot of showings on our listings, so buyers are definitely out there more than they usually are in the summer months.

The number of sales this past month dipped a little from the previous month, but only by 12 homes.  In May, we saw the highest number of homes sell in a month so far this year.  As a reminder, in April of last year, there’s a very high number of home sales.  This was artificially high as buyers tried to “cash in” on the tax credit.  This year, the sales numbers are not inflated by any other issue.  Real estate sales are fueled by the amount of job hiring in the area and by buyers who are more willing to move on with their lives, literally.

In June 2011, there were 2880 homes for sale and 661 of these homes had offers. The absorption rate, the number of homes that sold during a month compared to the number for sale, was 23%.  Almost one quarter of the Seattle eastside homes for sale sold in June.

How is the real estate market doing in your area?  Is it as strong as what we’re seeing here or is a little slower.

The Seattle-Eastside Real Estate Market Is Better Than You Think!

Number of homes for sale in King County

Number of Properties for Sale in King County

It’s simple.  Mix one part law of supply and demand;  one part the more positive economy;  and one part more ready, willing, and able buyers.  Mix with more realistic pricing that meets the market demand.  You now have the well priced homes selling and the most positive real estate market the eastside has had since mid 2007.

The supply of King homes and condos, the number of those for sale, is shown above.    This week, near the end of the first quarter of 2011, there are about 2000 less homes and condos for sale in King County than last year at this time. This means there are 16% less homes and condos for sale.  That’s a big difference.  It’s noticeable in a lot of neighborhoods. It’s noticeable to a lot of buyers.

The eastside statistics mirror those in the county. There are pockets on the eastside where home sales are popping, because there are only a few really great homes that come on the market.  I’ve seen this happen in different price ranges and different cities all over the eastside, including Bellevue, Kirkland, and Sammamish.

Real Estate Sales on Seattle's Eastside

Seattle Eastside Residential Real Estate Sales Through February 2011

Supply is key to the more positive eastside real estate market.  With less supply out there and more homes selling (other than March and April of 2010, which was the result of the tax credit) than any other month in a few years, this is a stronger real estate market.

With less supply, it’s a faster paced market.  It’s happening in many eastside neighborhoods, but not all.  It’s happening with some homes, but not all.  With less to choose from, the better valued homes are selling more quickly.  There are some great homes that I’ve previewed or shown over the last month and I can almost tell which homes will be sold inside of a week or two.  Almost everyday we see the number of pending sales outstrip the number of new listings coming on the market.  And yes, there are  homes still sitting on the market for a long time, are distressed sales or homes that don’t sell.  Despite this, there’s a big difference in the eastside real estate market.

Now I know you’re going to say this is not what you’re reading in the media.  Here’s the latest real estate article in The Seattle Times continuing with the same doom and gloom report about the real estate market. From the this article:

In the Seattle metropolitan area, which includes King, Snohomish and Pierce counties, prices are back where they were in September 2004, according to Case-Shiller.

Two things to consider when evaluating the above statement.  The first is Case-Shiller lumps King County statistics in with Pierce and Snohomish Counties.  King County has a far more positive economy than the other two counties. Seattle and Bellevue, the economic hubs of the region are both in King County.  The number of distressed properties is much smaller in King County than elsewhere in the region.

The second thing to remember is Case-Shiller is reporting on the past few months, not what’s happening in the market today.

I agree with Case-Shiller regarding home values, although home values may not be quite as low as 2004 pricing in some areas. Prices are down and probably will stay at these levels for a while.  I don’t anticipate prices going up any time soon.

But I do see a stronger market in many eastside neighborhoods.  People are ready to move on, literally, and they’re tired of waiting. Buyers are ready to buy and more sellers are pricing their homes to meet the current market demand. All in all, right now the Seattle-eastside has the best real estate market it’s had since 2007. It’s not the old real estate market of the past, but it’s a good, realistic market.

There Are Some "Hot" Real Estate Markets Around Seattle

There are some hot real estate markets in the Seattle area. These “red” hot areas are shown below. The usual suspects of Queen Anne and Capital Hill experienced a hot market in February. The newest suspect, East Bellevue and Redmond near Microsoft, my neck of the Seattle real estate market, was also going strong.    In that area, 35% of the available homes sold last month, the best odds on the eastside.  It’s exciting to see, since it’s been years since we’ve had “red” or a seller’s market on the eastside.*

I keep hearing about homes selling quickly and with multiple offers in a variety of price ranges.   Since most of the eastside is a balanced real estate market,**  this only happens for the best homes.   It happens for the “red” hot homes with hot prices and in beautiful condition. There are number of other homes that take a while to sell, often with price reductions before getting the offer.

The hot real estate markets around Seattle

Hotter King & Snohomish County real estate markets 2-28-11

———————————

What do the colors mean?

*Red means it’s a sellers’ market, a sellers’ advantage.  Homes take less than 3 months to sell.

**Yellow means a balanced market between buyers and sellers.  Homes on the average take 3-6 months to sell.

Green means it’s a buyers’ market.  Homes take longer than 6 months to sell.

If you take each area as shown on the map and look to the area number on the side of the map, it will tell you how long it would take to sell every home currently for sale if no other home came up on the market in that area.

What do the 3 digit numbers on the map mean?

The map is divided into the numbered areas as defined by our Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS).  Downtown Bellevue is area 520 and East Bellevue is area 530, as an example.

Can you see from the map how the real estate was doing in your city did last month?  If you’d like more specific information for your neighborhood, please feel free to contact me.

How Badly is Seattle's Eastside Real Estate Affected by Distressed Sales

“Distressed Homes Sales Dragging Prices Down” screamed the print version of The Seattle Times, while the online version shouted  “Median Home Price in King County Drops in February, Dragged Down by Bank Repos.

Pretty scary headlines.  Scary headlines certainly attract readers. Distressed home sales, bank repos and short sales, are out there and affecting home values, but in varying degrees depending on which neighborhood is being discussed.    If you read further down in the article:

The percentage of King County single-family homes that fit the “distressed” category in February varied widely by area, according to Windermere’s analysis.

By lumping all of King County together, it gives an inaccurate picture of Seattle real estate.  Seattle real estate is far more localized. The neighborhoods of Queen Anne and Capitol Hill are usually the strongest performing areas, while the eastside suburbs of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, and others are doing better than most of King County.  The suburbs of Mercer Island and Medina have few distressed properties for sale.

The chart below gives a picture of the 2010 distressed property sales for all the counties around Seattle.  My focus is on Seattle’s eastside neighborhoods, since it’s the market where I work. The eastside data is broken out from the rest of King County, because it’s usually different than the rest of the county.   The pattern for distressed sales activity can be seen through 2010.  The eastside had less distressed properties for sale than the rest of King County. I expect a similar pattern to continue in 2011, although the numbers may be different.  When the 1st quarter numbers are released, I’ll report those numbers.

Irrespective of the distressed sales issue, homes are selling well in some areas.  Prices are less than they were, but there are fewer homes for sale in many neighborhoods.  So the old law of supply and demand is working in these neighborhoods. Near Microsoft in Redmond, there were three home sales that closed this past week.  All the homes sold in less than 8 days.  One was for full price, another for slightly over, and one sold for about 2% less than the asking price. Neighborhoods in Kirkland have a lot less homes for sale than is typical.

Distressed home sales are a part of the picture of Seattle eastside real estate, but they are not the complete picture.  Too bad the screaming headlines didn’t balance more of the good news with the bad.

Has a Positive Trend Started in Seattle-Eastside Real Estate?

The positive trend in Seattle’s eastside real estate continued from December, 2010 to January’s sales.  Maybe the uptick in December was not an anomaly?  We’ll still need to wait and see.

This, again,  is what the Seattle Times said after December’s home sales numbers were released:

• Buyers are climbing off the fence, even if they suspect prices will continue slipping, because they fear interest rates will rise and wipe out any savings.

There was a lot more “climbing off the fence” in January.  Truthfully, the number of sales hasn’t increased all that much, but the number of homes the buyers have to choose from is a lot less.  It’s that old law of supply and demand, which is what we call the absorption rate.*

There are fewer homes to choose from, so the good ones are grabbed up.   That’s what feels different. The “fence sitters’ are jumping on the good home buys.  Some homes that hit the market are gone in a matter of days. The homes that are priced right and show well are the homes that sell quickly.

Since the last two months have had stronger absorption rates, I hesitate to call it a trend just yet, but I’ll keep you posted.  I can tell you that the number of buyers looking at homes, multiple offers (gasp), and the absorption rate (see below) have all increased since the first of the year.


Seattle eastside real estate sales

Seattle Eastside Real Estate Sales-January 2011

The odds of selling a home on the Eastside in January ranged from 18% to 28%, with an average 19.5% absorption rate.*  Most home sellers on Seattle’s eastside had a 19/100 chance of selling their home last month.

*(The absorption rate is the number of homes for sale in any given month divided by the actual number of homes sold that month.  If the absorption rate is 10%, then 10 out of the 100 homes for sale sold that month.)

January, 2011          2392  homes for sale    467  homes sold                 19% odds of selling.

December, 2010      2499 homes for sale    369 (was 397) homes sold     15%  (was 16%) odds of selling.**

January, 2010          2588 homes for sale   460 homes sold                 18%  odds of selling.

**(Some home sales fail because of the buyer financing or an inspection.  The number of sales is updated when we find out the actual number of homes that sold during that time.)

_____________________________________________________________

January, 2011 Seattle-Eastside real estate market compared to January, 2010:

  • The average  price of pending homes (recently sold homes) went from $525,462 to $495,080, a 6% decrease in pricing.
  • On 2-14-11, there were 10,530 King County homes (houses and condos) for sale.
