In a seller’s market, buyers have to act fast. In Seattle, homes were literally not making it through the
weekend without an offer. Today, it’s more of a buyer’s market. There are a larger number of properties
listed for sale, giving buyers choices. This means you can take your time, look at many houses, and make
a careful decision without worrying about being outbid.
The median days on market homes are experiencing in Seattle today has greatly increased as well.
According to Redfin, homes in Seattle are on the market for as long as 47 days. That’s 15 days more than
the same time last year. Seattle actually entered the spring market as a buyer’s market, which hasn’t
happened in years.
