Inventory | Too much in 2008, too little in 2012

THE AMOUNT OF REAL ESTATE INVENTORY ON THE MARKET is an important indicator as to the health of the market. In 2008, when the market was still & quiet, there was enough inventory on the market to support a buyer’s market.

Fast forward three years later to December 2011 and we find ourselves with a lack of inventory. North Seattle is solidly in a seller’s advantage market while the other areas of Seattle are on the brink of being a seller’s market.
