King County has a lot more properties for sale than the first week of the year. The first quarter of 2010 has passed and there are now 24% more homes and condos for sale, exactly 3000 more. Each week of the year has seen an increase in the number of properties for sale with the exception of one week. Right now there are 12,726 properties for sale and we started the year with 9726 available properties in King County.
This is typical of the Seattle area real estate market. Each spring the number of properties for sale increases dramatically. The good news is most Seattle areas are experiencing a huge jump in real estate sales. But that’s for another post!
