New listings in the month of May lowered absorption rates slightly in Seattle, the Eastside and King County while pending sales remained strong. Mercer Island saw a decent decline in pending sales…likely due, in part, to the lack of inventory for sale in key price ranges. Median sales prices are up in most areas and average sales prices are varied. By far, the strongest spring market we have seen in years.
