Seattle, Washington has been getting some good press over the last month. In September Reuters.com did an article titled "No Housing Woes in Booming Washington State" which said, “Seattle...is an especially hot job market boosting confidence of sustained growth.”
Earlier this month, Forbes.com in their article “America’s Most Stable Housing Markets” lists Seattle at the top of the list. Saying, “The Emerald City has experienced strong price appreciation over the last six quarters, and that's expected to continue in the new year, though at a slower pace.”
The real estate market has slowed and with the holiday season around the corner it is expected to continue the trend. If you are a buyer it is a good time to get into the market before things pick up next year.
