Let’s take a look at October NWMLS statistics from around the sound. As usual, courtesy Tableau Software, the Around the Sound update is rocking sweet interactive data visualizations.
Before we get to the cool stuff, here’s the usual table of YOY stats for each of our seven covered counties as of October 2009.
|Seasonally Adjusted Active Supply||1.6||1.8||1.7||1.6||1.6||1.7||2.0||1.8|
Hit the jump for the rest of this month’s interactive charts.
The visualization below is comparable to our previous chart of closed sales in each county in October 2008 and October 2009:
Kitsap, Skagit, and Thurston counties all still seem to be mostly missing out on the sales spike action.
Here’s our comparison of median prices in each county at their respective peaks and in October 2009:
Change from Peak
Still pretty much in a holding pattern.
Seasonally Adjusted Active Supply
Only Skagit County came in on the “buyer’s market” side with October’s SAAS, and only Skagit and Thurston saw higher SAAS than last year.
The complete lack of a strong surge in sales in Kitsap, Skagit, and Thurston counties is interesting. Given that these counties have some of the lowest home prices around the sound, it is surprising to see that the tax credit incentive doesn’t seem to be having more of an effect.
