Condos are Selling Well During the Holiday Season on Seattle’s Eastside

Looking back at November Seattle Eastside Condo real estate, we continued to see a seller's market.  Inventory declined as the number of condos for sale dropped almost 20% from October.  But sales were still strong, as 60% of the available condos sold.  Not everyone just ate turkey in November!

I'm expecting to see similar results in December.  Sales will be strong, but not as high a number as the peak month of August when over 260 condo sold. Still, with such low inventory, the chances of selling a condo that's priced correctly and shows well are quite high.   Buyers are out looking and hoping to find a new home, even though it is the holiday season.

If you're thinking of selling next year, think about making a move early in the season.  The pattern you see in the above chart is a typical yearly pattern.  Fewer condos will be on the market the first few months of the year, so it's a great time to sell.  There's less competition.

So enjoy the holidays and think about making your move earlier, rather than later next year.  Happy Holidays!
