Prices High, Inventory Low & UW Downtown

King County’s housing market hit two milestones in December: The median single-family home price set a new high, $508,000, topping the $481,000 peak reached in July 2007 before prices began their long slide.

And the number of active listings of houses and condominiums — just 2,196 — hit the lowest monthly level since at least 1993, according to data from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
