If you're looking for something to fry an egg on, the real estate market in the greater Seattle area would serve you well.  That is a lame, euphemistic way of saying that we have a very hot market here!  

"Why is that?" you say.  Strong tech employment, historically low interest rates and low inventory are three tremendous forces pushing this wave.  Below are a few statistical 

Interest Rates

Inventory

Market Time

Prices

"In Seattle, 41% of July's sales closed over

asking price & 70% of listings went

Pending in 15 days or less.  So yeah,

it's a Seller's market!" - Ted Dietz

SEATTLE STATS SUMMARY:

Welcome!

My name is Ted Dietz & I've been your friendly, Seattle neighborhood Realtor since 2003.  No matter how you found your way to my site, I'm glad you're here!

Stats Tip:

If you want a feel for the market, study at least 5 different statistical categories. Ted recommends contrasting Avg Median Price with Average Sold Price, as well as, looking at the Sold Absorption Rate, Avg Sold Price over Avg Original List Price & Avg Cumulative Days on Market.  If that all sounds like gobbly-gook, Contact Ted and he'll do it for you.  

REAL ESTATE & COVID

Things are very different right now.  But there's no good in getting crabby about it.  

Ted is still providing world-class service online and to a very limited degree, in person.  In fact, Ted is so desperate to see people in person that he is now having conversations with inanimate objects.  But we digress...  

The point is that Ted's here to help buyers and sellers reach their goals in smartest and safest ways possible.  

That's right, we have to wear masks, stay 6' apart and only 3 people are allowed in a house at one time.
You're telling me!!  But we're all in this together.
That's going to make it a lot harder to pinch people.

SELLERS

As you can see, Ted doesn't take himself too seriously.  But he does take the evaluation, preparation, marketing and negotiations of your property very seriously.  There is so much that needs to happen before and after the beautiful photography hits the web and sign gets stuck in the ground.  Such as:

  • Preparation 

  • Short Sales

SELLING TIP

Before you do any alteration to your home in preparation to sell, consult with a real estate broker.  Many times people spend unnecessary time and money remodeling/updating a room only to have the buyers of the property rip it out upon moving in.  A lot of times, we can save you that time and money or show you a more effective way to spend it.  Contact Ted if you'd like a consultation on how to prepare your home for market.
