This Week In Seattle Real Estate – 2nd Week Numbers Are In!

Here we are at the end of week 2 of January 2020! Our daily statistics tracker shows new listings surged by the 10th and then dropping down again in volume, while total pendings are almost matching actives at 98%. ( What’s really amazing is that there is a 44% ratio of 6-day pendings to current new-actives, which is unusually high, and not buyer-friendly. It could be amplified by the 2019 holiday inventory vacuum combined with January 2020 threats of early snow, so we’ll just have to see what falls out in the next few weeks!

Alan Pope’s great site ( is showing inventory dropping by about 1,000 in just a couple of the last months. If this continues, we’re back into a multiple-offer market. We’ll know more in the next couple of weeks as to whether that will pull back up (the blue line):
