Anton: Hey. What’s going on everyone? Anton Stetner here with the Real Estate Solutions Group. We’re here to talk about King County real estate statistics for February of 2012.

Hey, units for February 1,230 sold.

Focus people, focus.

Woman: There are going to be operator errors left and right. Okay. Carry on.

Anton: Okay. So before our operator error, units 1,230 sold. That’s up 18.5%. So just like in January, we’re seeing more properties selling. Year-to-date, we’re up 13.1% versus 2011. The average days on market was 84. It was down 4.7%. The average price in King County, $376,716. Now what does that really mean? It means that the average price from February versus February 2012 was still down 9%, and the average price year-to-date was down 9.2%.

What’s really interesting though, I didn’t write it up here. Months of inventory was 4.2. So once again, that’s putting us in a seller’s market. So in King County what’s happened basically here is inventory is decreasing, sales are up, and we’re feeling lots of upward price pressure for that under 400 product. Multiple offers on anything that’s really priced well. All of the bank owned traditional and new construction listings are selling fast, and what we’re seeing is that’s starting to force more buyers into short sales as they’re running out of inventory in other options.
