Local Market Update – January 2024

Despite moments of snow in Western Washington, the local real estate market is slowly warming, as new opportunities arise for both home buyers and sellers. Lower mortgage rates are welcome news for buyers, and low inventory means sellers are starting the year with minimal competition.

King County continues to see residential price gains, with last month’s median sold price of $849,950 up from $825,000 a year ago. Condo prices also rose, up 15% from $465,000 in December 2022 to $537,000 last month. King County is also experiencing a reduced supply of available single-family homes. At the end of last month, inventory stood at 1.3 months, down from 1.6 months at the end of November and 2.0 months a year prior.
