Home prices rose 3% last month, which is the largest gain in a year. Generally, prices have leveled off and there is less competition for buyers. It is still a seller’s market due to the low inventory. Homes that are in great condition in popular neighborhoods still may get multiple offers and have the price bid up. Homes under $500K may also have competition and multiple offers.The condo market has slowed considerably, and condos are getting much more market time.
This time of year, there tends to be fewer listings and homes that have been on the market for a while go under contract, lowering the inventory further. But there are also fewer buyers looking this time of year so it can be a great time to buy.
Meanwhile, I have been busy bringing on two new listings and helping a client buy a new home. I helped a client close on their new home this week, which brings a lot of last-minute tasks, and I had the pleasure of delivering their keys last night.

After nearly a quarter century living in her unique, townhouse-style condo in West Seattle, Ann Gilbert was having a hard time navigating the stairs and needed to downsize, so she planned to move in with her daughter in Puyallup.
She contacted my longtime partner Dorothy Driver through a mutual friend, and prepared to vacate the beautifully non-cookie cutter abode with lofted design, soaring vaulted ceilings, spectacular window walls of light and fenced yard.
It was a bittersweet time for Ann, and I was happy to help make the transition as smooth as possible for her.
We met with Ann to determine what was needed to get the unit on the market. While it was a nice private end-unit in a pretty setting, it was also somewhat dated and had some deferred maintenance, so we devised a plan and timeline to accomplish the work.
