Wallingford single family residential real estate has been interesting this summer, with some great properties changing hands. Year over year numbers have reflected some surprising changes in the market. Wallingford is still faring better than many other Seattle neighborhoods and suburbs and although year over year quantity of sales has decreased, the median sales price has increased both on a monthly and a year to date basis.

In the last 30 days, only 4 Wallingford single family homes have closed at escrow. These ranged in sales price from $312,925 for a 1440 square foot home around 47th and Thackeray PL NE to $815,000 for a 2305 square foot home around 40th and Woodlawn Ave N. These sold Wallingford homes have a median final sales price of $576,000. The sales price to list price ratio on these is 96.27% and they had a final average days on market of 68 days.
Only 4 Closed Homes In 30 Days?
Only 4 closed sales in the last 30 days is pretty bad even though there are 13 Pending homes waiting to close, so I wanted to look at the same time period last year and see how we compared. Last year during the same period from late July to late August, there were 11 closed Wallingford single family residential sales. These ranged in sales price from $420,000 to $850,000 with a final median sales price of $571,000. So, year over year, we are seeing a higher median final sales price this year. In addition, the average days on market for last year is higher at 74 days and the sales price to list price ratio is lower at 95.72%. Wallingford homes are selling in less time and for closer to list price than they were last year, but in less quantity.
Looking at just 30 days might not show the entire picture so I always like to also look at year to date for the same time periods to see how we are faring in Wallingford.
