Homes Sold in North Seattle WA

The median priced home in north Seattle, Washington was $407,500 in December. With luck home values in January will stay above $400,000 and the low point of 2009 which was $394,250 last March.

The number of homes sold in north Seattle moved down to 206 and pending homes dropped to 163. This is typical for this time of year since many home Buyers have put their search on hold during the holidays.

I expect January to be the low point of the year for home sale values and volumes for 2010.

Homes Sold in Central Seattle, WA

The median home price in central Seattle Washington was $506,500 in December. Home price for pending homes was listed at $489,250. It looks clear that home prices in January of 2010 will continue to drop with a possible dip below the low in March of 2009 of $480,000.

The number of homes sold in central Seattle dropped to 113 in December. Pending homes dropped dramatically. Home buyer put there search on hold for the holiday season. I expect fewer homes to sell in December, but more homes to go pending which signals the begin of a new cycle for 2010.
