Q1 Market Report
Downtown Seattle witnessed fewer condominium resales during the first quarter of 2018 compared with that of the first quarter of 2017, largely because there were fewer homes to choose from. And the lack of available supply is raising further concerns about an affordability crisis. Currently, there are only 44 resale homes available for sale in an urban center of more than 80,000 residents but there are more priced above $1 million than there are at lower price points. Meanwhile, median home prices in Seattle are rising at 19-percent per year, according to analysis of first quarter 2018 data compared to the prior year.
