June Real Estate Results In Green Lake Seattle

A recent Cooper Jacobs Green Lake sale

Combined with historic low interest rates and low inventory, June 2013 proved to be a huge gain in Seattle’s real estate market compared to a year ago.  Green Lake, and the neighboring communities, made big strides.

The combination of closed condos and single family homes for King County in June gained 14.08% from a year ago.  I believe once July’s numbers are disclosed, the percentage will be even greater since I’ve seen some impressive competing offers and pending (to close) sales for July are already over 10% for King County.

Green Lake had 42 sold homes in the last 31 days.  The median home selling in Green Lake was nearly 2,000 square feet, averaged 14 days on the market, was listed for $564,592 and sold for $578,253 or 2.86% over asking.  High sold property in Green Lake was $1.36M and lowest (which was a condo) was $265,000.

Whether you’re a buyer or seller and would like more info on Green Lake and surround neighborhoods, feel free to call or email me.

Green Lake Home Owner Alert: Tactics & Techniques Required

Green Lake Home Owner Selling Tips: If you are thinking about moving right now, there are some different approaches you need to take to be successful. We have a list of qualified Green Lake buyers waiting for the right house to come on the market. You won't have any trouble selling your house. No one can argue that fact right now.


Inventory is low and it is common to have multiple offers numbering in the teens.

The issue is making sure you take full advantage of the the situation by maximizing the terms to your benefit.

Some of the considerations

  • Where are you planning on moving and what are the market conditions there? If you plan on purchasing a Seattle home in Green Lake or another hot neighborhood, then you should be well prepared for making a competitive offer. Many people like to sell before moving, but in today's market if you have the ability at all to purchase and then sell your Green Lake home, then you have a safety net of making sure you secure your new home before you sell your current one.

  • Pricing: We can get you far more money then you probably imagined for your home. That is just the reality of the situation right now. Let us know what your timeline is and we can give you a better idea of price as well as provide you with a detailed market analysis to show you what is going on on a day to day basis. Real estate changes daily and it is important to rely on an expert on the street.

Inspections, Preinspections, disclosures. Be prepared for buyers to preinspect your home before making an offer. This is so they can safely waive their inspection and offer you a stronger contract. Many buyers are also just waiving the inspection without preinspecting. In addition to a traditional structural inspection, many buyers are having a sewer scope performed on homes they are putting offers in on. Be prepared to possibly disclose newly discovered information about your home as a result of things that could come up in negotiations if you accept an offer subject to inspection. Choosing an offer that has either completely waived the inspection or has waived it based on a preinspection protects you from the possibility of having to disclose additional information you may not otherwise have knowledge of.

There are more things to consider. I am happy to sit down with you and discuss your particular situation to help you gain the biggest return on your hard earned investment.

Green Lake Inventory of Active Homes

Green Lake Inventory of Active Homes

Let’s take a look at the 30 active Green Lake homes right now on the market.  Inventory is tighter now than it was a year ago.  In fact 53.3% less homes are on the market today than October 2011. 

Searching the entire database of active homes in Green Lake, I found just three condos and the rest were single family homes.  The lowest price being $189,000 and the highest of $1.25M brings the median price in Green Lake to $449,600.

I generally like to price homes by cost per square foot.  By doing so the average cost per square foot is around $252.00.

Here is a snapshot of the 30 active Green Lake homes:

Market Recovery: Slow and Sane

Last month’s housing inventory around western Washington fell to its lowest level since February 2006, according to statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. The MLS report covering 21 counties also shows year-over-year prices on closed sales area-wide increased by double-digits for the first time since March 2007.

Brokers reported 6,000 closed sales of single family homes and condominiums last month, outperforming the year-ago volume by 1,236 transaction for an increase of nearly 26 percent. Last month’s activity in the areas served by Northwest MLS marked a rebound from September when members reported 5,535 completed transaction.

Prices on October’s sales were up 10.4 percent compared to twelve months ago. The median price for last month’s closed sales of single family homes and condominiums (combined) was $251,625; a year ago the figure was $228,000.  The last time the multiple listing service reported an area-wide double digit hike in prices was March 2007 (up 11.3 percent).

Prices for single family homes, which accounted for more than 86 percent of October’s sales, rose more than 11 percent, while prices for condominiums jumped 16.6 percent.

The brisk sales activity is creating imbalanced markets in some Northwest MLS counties. Area-wide there is less than a three month supply of homes based on the pace of pending sales when matched with inventory. (Many industry experts consider 5-to-6 months as the indicator of a balanced market.)

At the end of October, five counties in the MLS system have less than four months of supply:
