Spring Surge Starting Early in Seattle Housing Market

The spring surge has already begun in the Seattle housing market, with temperatures rising and potential homebuyers ready to strike.

Like the rest of the country, however, the city has very few listings up for sale – down 19 percent from a year ago – which means lots of competition on the offer front.

“They will probably make several offers before one is accepted, they just need to expect to be competing with others,” Frank Wilson, director of Seattle’s MLS told CNBC. “Listings are flying off the shelf faster than allergy medicine in this early spring market.”
