Real Estate in Belltown/Downtown is continuing to show growth month by month. The numbers also show us that summer has been a busy buyer’s market. The number of sales as increased slowly up throughout spring into summer. Between March and May, the number of sales climbed in small increments March 38, April 44, May 53. At the end of June, we saw 164 residences sold with 93 left pending. The astronomic increase was due mainly to pre-sales for the Insignia building, but still shows the demand for condos continues to grow.
The general downtown area only saw 10 more sales this July than July of 2015, but the average prices increased. The lowest average price has gone up by $12,500, the median price increased by $169,450, and the highest jumped $1,520,000. There are currently 63 active listings and 101 pending. We will have to see what this crazy neighborhood market has in store for us next month!
