In the graph below, “CDOM” means Cumulative Days on Market;  “SP” means Sales Price; “Orig. LP” means Original List Price.


In the housing inventory graph below, any number between 0 and 3 is considered a seller’s market.


Now, in mid-June, we are seeing a few more homes come on the market, but we are still solidly in a low housing inventory situation.  Summer tends to be a little slower here in the Seattle area real estate market, and it’s also a time when more sellers get around to listing their homes, so typically we see slightly less demand and a bit more inventory compared to in the spring.  This year we have a long way to go to make up for the shortage of available homes.
