Hawkins-Poe Monthly Newsletter Outlook February 2024

Hawkins Poe Real Estate Market February 2024

The real estate market in January 2024 remained relatively subdued, typical of the seasonal slowdown
during this period. However, there were a few notable trends worth mentioning. Closed sales experienced
a modest uptick of 3% compared to the same month last year. Despite this, the median price
for residential homes in the NWMLS exhibited a substantial increase of 6.5% year-over-year, reflecting
persistent demand and limited supply.

The number of active homes on the market continued its downward trajectory across Washington
state, with 15 out of 26 counties witnessing a decrease compared to last year. January 2024 saw a
significant decline in active listings (14%) compared to January 2023.

Looking ahead, there is optimism that the spring season may bring relief to buyers as inventory is
anticipated to increase. However, the market is likely to remain competitive, underscoring the importance
of strategic planning for both buyers and sellers.
