In Central Seattle, we saw both a drop in new active inventory along with homes under contract. Queen Anne/Magnolia saw a drop in new active listings along with a small drop in pendings (indicating this is still an area with high demand). Belltown/Downtown saw a large increase in new active listings which were mainly condo based. Inventory was absorbed quickly with Belltown/Downtown sporting both the largest swing in new active listings and new pendings.

Ballard/Greenlake saw both a slight increase in new active listings along with pendings while North Seattle continued its high demand profile with a slight decline in new active listings and a slight increase in pendings.

Median Sales Prices

Median sales prices tell the story even further.  It shouldn’t surprise you to see that median sales prices are up across the board in Seattle, ranging from 4.09% to 11.33%. Below are the median sales price averages for the neighborhoods I track comparing 2013 to 2014. Remember, these prices include both residences and condos.
