King & Snohomish County Market Report

Housing prices are expected to continue to have a limited fall throughout 2006, according to testimony submitted by the National Association of Realtors® at last week's Senate Banking Committee hearing on the economy. August home sales in King and Snohomish counties are defying this forecast, however. The statistics show a decreasing number of sales, but rising prices. Take a look at the numbers.

Active listings in King County increased by 1853 homes or 26 percent compared to the same time period in 2005. Sales decreased in August by 4 percent or 152 homes. The average market time increased by 14 percent during the same time period.

The average sales price is 12 percent higher than August 2005 and year-to-date prices are 15 percent higher or $458,509.



Snohomish County statistics look very similar. The number of active listings increased by 24 percent from August a year ago. And sales decreased by 97 homes or 5 percent with market times increasing 5 percent or 2 days.

The average sales prices in August increased by 14 percent compared to a year ago, while the year-to-date prices are up 17 percent or $299,159.



Double digit appreciation is continuing, but the competition for ready, willing and able buyers is getting tighter. Homes must be staged well and priced right.
