Seattle Real Estate Market Update

September NWMLS Statistics Reveal a Balanced Market but Home Prices Stay Elevated

The latest NWMLS report on greater Seattle real estate shows active listings are doubled from a year ago, sales dipped down, but prices in most areas are still rising. Despite the rising interest rates, buyers are getting a bit of relief from the chaotic, multiple-offer, pandemic market we experienced over the last two years.

The NWMLS report shows that we are syncing up with pre-pandemic levels. Here is a breakdown of the greater Seattle real estate market statistics for September compared to this time last year:

Overall, the market is at a 2-month supply of inventory, compared to a balanced market, which is 4-6 months’ worth of inventory. Presently, we are on par with the inventory levels of 2019, according to the NWMLS.
