Seattle Condo Market Update October 2017

Historically, Seattle experiences a bump in real estate sales during October (between the end of summer and start of fall) and this year was no different.

The number of closed condo sales increased with the citywide median sales price rising 13.73% over last October to $472,000, which very nearly matched the all-time high of $475,000.

All Seattle neighborhoods realized year-over-year increases in median sale prices by double digits (see table at bottom of article).

Seasonally, we’ll continue to see fewer active condo listings as we round out the year.
