By request, here’s a return of the county-wide stats from around the sound, as of September 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 September 2010.
Pretty much the same story all across the region: sales way down, inventory up, prices still creeping down.
Hit the jump for the rest of this month’s visualizations.
The visualization below looks at closed sales in each county in September 2009 and September 2010:
All eight counties have flipped from double-digit positive YOY sales growth earlier this year to double-digit negative as of September. Impressive swing.

No big changes here yet. Prices tend to take a while to react to swings in supply and demand (even ones as dramatic as we have seen this year).
Seasonally Adjusted Active Supply
Interestingly, King County was the best market for buyers in September. Most counties came in fairly balanced, as pitiful sales volume was somewhat offset by a low number of new listings coming on the market.
