Hello May! Spring has sprung, and the Seattle real estate market continues to be extremely active! We have seen a continuing shortage of inventory and a demand that looks to not be slowing down.

The great housing “reshuffle” seems to continue in now its second phase. Home has been redefined for many of us; the merging of home and office, and the now further rebalancing of many people working part time at home and working out a “new normal” will continue to help shape the market. Preparing a home to present to market has never been more important; our home prep gurus, styling team and photographers and inspectors have never been busier.

The single-family home market has been particularly robust. One part of the market that has been slow over the past 12 to 14 months is the condo market, and over the past few weeks it has had a tremendous awakening with a lot of properties that have been on the market for some time selling and seeing competing offers. There is also a great shortage of singly-family rentals in the Seattle market city-wide.

We are getting our open house signs out again, and you should see more open houses pop up in the next month. One holdover from the past year is that the showing process has been exclusively by appointment. This approach has allowed clients to have time alone in a home for an allotted period — something that will likely continue from the positive feedback we have received!
