Seattle weekly wrap-up: the market is more active than expected

By August 22, 2022

Market Report

New listings were up for a second week in a row!? (We saw 289 new listings, up 3.58% w-o-w.) The number of homes going under contract was also up (up nearly 11% to 227). So much for the usual end of summer slow down! Meanwhile, rates jumped late last week and are at 5.72% today for a 30-year fixed.

What caught our eye? A sweet floating home just hit the market at Ward’s Cove for $3.85m. Or if you’d prefer a pool to a lake, here’s a sweet midcentury with a salt-water pool (already pending!). Midcentury fans, here’s an Ibsen Nelsen-designed Crownhill one for $1m. Loft fans, here’s a penthouse at Mosler. A-frame fans, here’s one for $300k north of Cle Elum.

Last Friday, our recently remodeled floating home, was filmed for this year’s virtual floating home tour. For $30 you get to see inside 10 floating homes from the comfort of your couch on September 18th!

P.S. Our next home buying class is on September 7th
