Got a bunch of things to share with everybody that have built up over the past week, so let’s just get right into it.
First up, a couple of stories that take a look at the big picture local numbers…
Next, a somewhat extreme anecdote to go along with the recent foreclosure stats:
Rolf Boone, The Olympian: 57 single-family lots in foreclosure in Lacey subdivision
I’m sure this piece will be interesting to regular readers here, as well. Aubrey takes a closer look at the north Seattle neighborhoods that seem to be the most resilient when we run the monthly neighborhood months of supply updates. The conclusion seems to be that despite the apparent strength, north Seattle isn’t much of a party for sellers.
Aubrey Cohen, Seattle P-I: The stats say North Seattle is still a seller’s market, even if nobody agrees
Lastly, here’s a couple of national pieces that have been brought up recently by a lot of people, including an NPR segment featuring Jill Keto, who you may recall from a January Seattle Times article.
