It's still an extremely tight housing market in Seattle and especially on the Eastside, where the number of available homes dropped over 68% year-to-year in March, and the median sale price rose over 30% year-to-year to reach $1,350,000. Interest rates are still extremely low, at or slightly below 3 percent - further driving the demand for homes.
(The most recent numbers are always from the previous month.)
Seattle and Eastside Year-to-Year Housing Data - March 2021
Expect to see year-to-year data shift in the next few months because in March of 2020 is when the effects of the pandemic started to play out in the housing market - especially in April and May of 2020. "Sold" data always lag by a few months, so the events that occurred in spring of 2020 show up in numbers published in May through July 2020.
