In the Seattle region, total units sold are a bit down from this time last year (32 in 2015 vs 20 in 2016) but the markets in these areas tend to be comprised of a few large sales rather than a greater quantity of more middle-priced options. With a glut of construction in Seattle Proper to meet the demand of the near-constant stream of people relocating from out-of-city or out-of-state, the area has developed a strong rental market, perhaps with the result of fewer home sales. Waterfront sales in this area tend to be either large, multi-million dollar estates or lower-priced condos with little in-between.
