Let’s take a look at January NWMLS statistics from around the sound. As usual, courtesy Tableau Software (available free to use online), 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 eight covered counties as of January 2010.
Wow, the sales boost sure didn’t last long in Thurston.
Hit the jump for the rest of this month’s visualizations.
The visualization below looks at closed sales in each county in January 2009 and January 2010:
While the tax credit boost is carrying on around most of the sound, it has already worn off in Skagit and Thurston, which both saw year-over-year declines in sales.
Here’s our comparison of median prices in each county at their respective peaks and in January 2010:
Change from Peak
Still holding fairly steady. Skagit is definitely taking the biggest hit, down a full third from the peak.
Seasonally Adjusted Active Supply
Somewhat of a mixed bag on the SAAS front. Most counties saw lower SAAS than a year ago, but only one (Kitsap) was in “seller’s market” territory, and only just barely.
Still looks like Skagit is holding on as the best place for buyer’s to find deals and negotiate from a strong position, but things seem to be rapidly slowing in Thurston, as well.
