Current Home Statistics Snohomish & King County

Snohomish County Statistics as of December 2019

I took this quote from the Northwest Multiple Listing service and while it was not by a RE/MAX Chairman, 😉a great comment that I agree with and how I see us going into 2020.

“Historically low interest rates and strong job growth continue to drive the Puget Sound housing market, which is already sizzling as we begin the new decade. In the more affordable and mid-price ranges, many areas are seeing frenzied sales activity with multiple offers on most properties.”-J. Lennox Scott, chairman and CEO of John L. Scott Real Estate.
