2017 YEAR END REVIEW
Seattle area real estate paid off big yet again in 2017 with a 14.1% median price increase to $708,000. In fact, over the past five years, prices are up 58.7%. A Seattle house that was $446,000 in 2013 would sell for a whopping $708,000 today, or $262,000 more.
Grappling with gridlock and buyer push-back over steeply escalating prices, Seattle saw the strongest price growth in neighborhoods further from the downtown core—namely South Seattle, Shoreline, and West Seattle. These more affordable regions offered home buyers more for their money than many of the core in-city hoods…although the quaint, inviting homes with signature “Seattle Charm” are pretty hard to pass up.
