Kirkland Real Estate Sales Through May 2011

The number of Kirkland real estate sales was slightly better in May than in April.  Eighty-five homes sold in Kirkland, which means 30% percent of all the homes for sale in Kirkland had accepted offers.    This is the second consecutive month in which we’ve seen such great numbers.

Kirkland home sales doubled over last May’s totals, but that’s no big surprise.  Last May sales numbers were lower because so many buyers bought by the end of April to take advantage of last year’s tax credit.  Since there was such a push for buyers to buy before the deadline, many of the buyers purchasing under $800,000 had bought by May.

Since “one size real estate” does not fit all, it’s important to look at local real estate statistics.  Even in the Seattle area, there are vast differences among the various locales.

As far as  real estate on Seattle’s eastside goes, Kirkland had one of the highest percentages of homes sales for the second month in a row.  Because Kirkland is close to job centers, has a great school system, a variety of housing and price ranges, and a wonderful ambiance, it’s a desirable community to live in.

How are real estate sales in your neighborhood?
