Sequim Real Estate Market Improving
How shall we interpret this Sequim real estate market report? My interpretation is that the market has improved dramatically over last year. This is consistent with all of this data. We have fewer listings because homes have been selling and the inventory has been shrinking. I’ve been writing about our shrinking inventory for a while. Four years ago I suggested that we would find ourselves with a shrinking inventory with builders not building and a limited number of ideal homes that most retirees want. The average price of sold homes has increased by $45,000. That is a result of supply and demand. The number of days on market (DOM) has sharply dropped indicating that homes are selling faster in a tighter market. And sales increased by a whopping 88%! That certainly is a strong indication that the Sequim real estate market has improved substantially over last year.
