With April behind us, let’s have a look at our monthly stats preview. First up, here’s the snapshot of all the data as far back as my historical information goes, with the latest, high, and low values highlighted for each series:
Inventory is still extremely low, but in King County the month-over-month increase was the largest (in percentage terms) that we have ever seen. Snohomish also saw a good sized month-over-month gain, but both counties are still below last year’s inventory level. Meanwhile sales were down from a year earlier in both counties, and foreclosures continued to be near their historic lows.
