The heat is really rising this month and the inventory in the real estate market is still low. For the first time in the King County area, the median home price has increased over $100,000 in just one year. The country had its hottest month of July in the last 17 years, with prices rising 18.6 percent from a year ago. Seattle and the Eastside did show a slight drop in median prices compared to our record-setting June, but were still up 15 percent from last year. Seattle’s median home price is $749,000 and the Eastside is $860,000. Condo median price in Downtown Seattle actually saw a slight drop compared to the prior year ($462,000 vs $465,000). The condo price drop in Downtown Seattle was due to the Insignia condo which was completed in 2016. In July 2016, the Insignia accounted for over 25% of the condos sold (105 units) at a median price of $695,900.
