Tough Housing Markets: Where Does Seattle Land?
Who's to blame for the high prices and slim pickings?
It's always easier to blame the price hikes and lack of inventory in the Seattle area on Washington outsiders but if you look at the overall real estate market, you'll see the real crux. The Seattle Times recently compared different regions with the tightest housing markets throughout the country and found one common theme: "No one is selling their house." Ranking second on the list means fiercer competition, bidding wars, and a fear of selling.
