How Many Condos Are On The Market In Seattle?
It thought it would be a good time to share an update with you. In just 8 months, we have seen Seattle condo inventory rise quickly. Here is simple inventory breakdown in each market.
- In January of this year Downtown Seattle had just 43 units per sale – there are now 153 units. That is a 256% increase in just 8 months.
- Capitol Hill had just 5 condos for sale in January. The Hill now has 29 condos for sale – an increase of 480%
- Queen Anne had just 10 units for sale in January. Today, they have 44 units or an increase of 340%
Here is the look at the same picture shown above from earlier in the year.

These posts are meant to be a guide – I try to report on all major changes in the Seattle condo market. I don’t know how long this inventory will last. I think the market is consolidating and letting some steam out. Prices have run up very quickly and a reset in the market is necessary. In my opinion, I feel that this additional inventory is exactly what the market needs. Buyers have a great opportunity during market adjustments like this.
Meanwhile, sellers will have to make a concerted effort to price appropriately and really position themselves in the market. Some of the price reductions are sellers going after a price that is above market value. This never ends well.
Net net, I think the Seattle housing market is a very excellent place to be. We live in a dynamic city. A city full of life, great jobs and an incredible landscape. I think there is plenty of runway left for price appreciation and long term growth. If you have any questions, get in touch or lets grab a cup of coffee.
