By The Numbers: Pending Sales in King County | Jan/Feb 2023

Cindy Kelly


Here's a metric that I'm keeping an eye on: 𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐑𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐬𝐚π₯𝐞𝐬.

Based on what we'd expect from previous years, there's been an uptick in pending listings, climbing faster - and sooner - than we would expect. There's a nice bump in activity in the Bellevue and Seattle housing market after the slow down in November-December. Much of this had to do with the rate drop we had, along with pent up demand and our lack of inventory.

π–π‘πšπ­ 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐑𝐚𝐭 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧? Not all homes are taking longer to sell! The best homes are getting snapped up - and there's even been some eye-raising multiple offer situations. Coupled with a slow down in the amount of homes coming onto the market, I've been advising my buyers to ignore headlines, and move quickly when they find a home they want. While many buyers are still hesitating, I think it's looking more and more likely that the Spring market is starting early.

π–π‘πšπ­ 𝐈'𝐦 π₯𝐨𝐨𝐀𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐭 𝐧𝐞𝐱𝐭: The next Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is March 22, so interest rates and other policy outlooks will be coming out at the press conference then.
