In our neck of the woods, Realtor.com listed Seattle at the fifth-best market in their top 10 “Turnaround Towns” for the 3rd quarter of 2012. According to the Seattle PI, “Seattle’s inventory of homes available for sale dropped 45.57 percent compared to the same time last year, nearly slashing prospective home buyers’ options by half. The time a home sits on the market before selling also dropped over 40 percent, making the Seattle real estate market a much tighter, faster-moving market than it was just a year ago” (see article).
