As of July 31st, 2016 the current housing inventory for Snohomish County is only 1.3 months. That means that if no other homes come on the market houses will sell out within a little over one month.  Currently, Snohomish County as whole homes has an average time of 35 days on the market before they sell. This would suggest that buyers are in a position to make an aggressive offer on a home, especially if it is their dream home. Sellers should make sure to price their home at the market value if they expect to get an offer from one of those interested buyers. Low inventory is one indicator that prices should continue to rise until there is a more balanced inventory. Fall and winter are coming and that is the season where the market will usually balance out. Sellers should beware when accepting offers too high over the asking price because homes still have to appraise at the value in order for buyers to get financing.
