Today’s Case-Shiller shows that values in the three-county region have been about the same throughout the second half of 2013, with the December number 0.53% below November.
However, we expect that January’s numbers will show a rise, and February’s a jump, based on the in-city Seattle market these past two months. There have been amazing multiple-offer situations, ten or more offers on some places, offers more than 20% over asking on select in-city homes . . . it is crazy out there right now.
