Price reductions, increasing inventory give Seattle-area home seekers upper hand

Home prices are falling in Seattle.

New numbers indicate that home prices across King County fell for their third consecutive month, including a $30,000 drop in August. The same is true across the county, where the median home price is down nearly $60,000 since May.

While overall prices in the county remain up by 2.9 percent year over year, the increase represents the smallest uptick over the last four years.

In addition to the mild cooling period, there’s more encouraging news for potential homebuyers. The number of homes for sale is up 66 percent across the county – the largest jump of inventory in more than 10 years.

If you’re thinking about buying a home in the Pacific Northwest, these factors may put you in the driver’s seat. Price reductions and a healthy inventory of homes are two ideal market conditions you can take advantage of today.
