Seattle Region Quarter 2 Reviews are now posted on Mercer Island Pulse – click here to get all the juicy details. And surprisingly, we are starting to see some market balance in pockets around the region.  In fact, on Mercer Island homes prices above $2 million saw some stagnation during Quarter 2 due to increased inventory coupled with a taper in buyer demand.  On the Eastside, a few balanced markets are starting to emerge even in such a strong seller-favored environment. In Seattle, rental prices increased quicker than home pricing appreciated during Quarter 2. All of the city neighborhoods are hot, but the most affordable neighborhoods, like North Seattle, saw a ton of activity. North Seattle also saw the highest year-over-year price gain for the quarter.

There are also Quarter 2 Reviews for waterfront properties, and the condo market. Click here for details.
