The 6th Most Competitive Market for Homes

*

“Seattle is the sixth-most competitive market for homes in the U.S., with 67.4 percent of all home offers having a competitive bid, which is down from 74.6 percent a month earlier, according to Seattle-based online real estate company Redfin.”

*

Even if the bidding wars have slowed down since last month, chances are that when shopping for a new home, buyers will still have to compete with several other offers.

*

Another article, posted in the Puget Sound Business Journal, shares the story of a couple who desperately searched for a home, finally found one, only to have to compete with four other bids driving the final purchase price to $6000 over the original asking price. “It was extremely stressful,” they said. One thing is certain; inventory is scarce but there is another solution.
