Report: Inventory in King County increases by 43 percent
Over the last year, there has been a lot of reports about how real estate inventory is low, causing the market to be competitive with bidding wars and high prices.
That may be shifting, however. A new report in The Seattle Times shows that inventory may be increasing – a possible shift in the market that could potentially lower prices and reduce some of the barriers buyers have been facing.
According to the report:
- In King County in June, the number of homes available increased by 43 percent when compared to the same time last year.
- The number of condos available increased by 73 percent.
- Inventory has increased for three months straight.
- Around 32 percent of the available homes had price reductions in June.
This may indicate that the buyer’s market is returning.
