Opportunities abound for home buyers and sellers

NWMLS director John Deely characterized the market as being in “high gear” during July, with pent-up demand and the need for housing outweighing fears of the coronavirus. “Although new listings of single family homes in King County jumped more than 24% from a year ago, the total available inventory dropped to a 10-year low for the month,” he remarked. “Single family listings priced at or below market are receiving multiple offers with one recent Seattle listing attracting 40 offers,” reported Deely, the principal managing broker at Coldwell Bank Bain in Seattle.
