The Real Estate Sales Numbers in Redmond, Kirkland, Bellevue Continue to Be Fabulous

This tells it like it is in the Seattle area real estate market.  The entire region, with the exception of Vashon Island in yellow, is a sellers market, which is indicated by the color red.  The top sales rate, not the most sales, once again goes to Redmond and East Bellevue near Microsoft.  In March, 80% of the homes sold there, while 69% sold in April! The odds of selling a home were the lowest in other parts of Redmond and Carnation.  But at 32%, the odds were still good.  This is a testament to the positive economy in the Seattle area and on the eastside.

Microsoft is hiring and moving people around the country.  We know this first hand as we’re working with three different buyers who are either moving into the Bellevue/Redmond area or moving out of state for Microsoft.

Multiple offers, a shortage of homes, a huge percentage of homes selling in a short amount of time. some price increases (although minimal) are happening all over the Seattle eastside real estate market.  The Seattle Times recently published a very positive picture of the local real estate market.

*(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%)

** (y-o-y)  median pricing is comparing year over year numbers.
