As we close out the books for Seattle real estate in 2009, I thought I'd give you a few of the highs and lows of the year, statistically. These statistics are not compiled or published by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service. They're not official county records, just statistics I've pulled from the NWMLS for my own entertainment purposes.
Highest home sale price of the year in Seattle: $11.5 Million. Congratulations, you lucky new owners.
Lowest home sale price of the year in Seattle: $32,000
Largest Seattle home stats, sold in 2009: 16 bedrooms, 6 baths, 11,700 sq ft. The children are NOT allowed to play hide and seek any more.
Smallest Seattle home stats,sold in 2009: 320 sq ft studio.
Longest time to sell a home in Seattle: 1075 days. Way to hang in there.
Shortest time to sell a home in Seatle: 0 days (sold on opening day)
The median Seattle home this year was a 3 bed, 1.75 bath, 1500 sq ft home selling for around $365,000. Sounds about right.
It was one heck of a year, from an early dead-zone to a mad dash at the finish. We hope that all of you had a great year, and wish you luck in the coming year of 2010.
