Real estate activity over the last 2 years didn’t slow down for the fall season. In fact, I think November was our busiest month each of the last 2 years. And it was because a lot of people didn’t want to wait for the busy spring and summer seasons.
This year, we’re finally leveling out into a more level playing field as far as buyers and sellers go. That means we have more listings and buyers are able to be a little bit pickier.
The result, two of our listings are surprisingly still available. Both have had significant price drops over the last month.
MLS 1350518 – A 10 year old home in North Beacon Hill within walking distance to Rainier and multiple bus routes. It features 3 bedrooms and a price tag under $700K. Located at 1535 17th Avenue South, in Seattle 98144.
MLS 1341684 – A condo next to a great elementary school in the Klahanie neighborhood of Tanglewood, located in Issaquah. It features 2 bedrooms and a price tag of $319,000. Located at 25025 SE Klahanie Blvd, in Issaquah 98029
My advice is that if you’re a buyer in this market, now is the best time in the last 5 years to buy a home. Especially if you want to be picky about finishes, inspections, closing dates, and so on.
