King County Homes See Double Digit Rise

Washington Park Home listed for $3,895,000
This has been the third straight month in a row that we’ve seen a year over year price increase in King County, and it’s definitely the largest! According to the Seattle Times, for the first time in five years, we’ve seen a double digit increase, with the median value in homes estimated at $380,000, a 10.1% rise since June of last year. The last time there was a year over year double digit increase was back in 2007, when the median also hit an all time high of $481,000.

After the high, the inevitable countrywide median housing drop occurred, falling nearly 36% nationwide, dropping down to $308,125  this past February. According to the Times, this June was a jaw dropper, with 23 or 29 King County areas experiencing a year over year increase, with 13 of them in the double digits! While not as impressive as King County, Snohomish and Kitsap County also saw slight increases, and condo prices in King County went up nearly 5% as well.
