Homebuyers have been pleased to see an increase in new listings hit the market. The NWMLS experienced an uptick in new listings and pending sales in May, reporting the highest number of new
listings since December.

While an increase in inventory has helped ease some home buyer frustration, we still have not reached a balanced market (4-6 months). Pierce County reported just 1.09 months of inventory, followed by King at 1.26 months and Kitsap at 1.3. The lack of inventory combined with the summer weather has caused many multiple offer situations and a steady decline in the days on market.

New listings are not the only thing up this summer. The NWMLS also reports the average sales price has experienced a steady increase since January of 2023. Despite news media reports of a decline compared to 2022, the adjustment seems to have passed, and the market is picking up speed in 2023.
