The Roosevelt-Ravenna-Maple Leaf real estate market starting to see some headwinds 

This week:

The median list price in Seattle’s Roosevelt-Ravenna Maple Leaf neighborhoods is $717,475  up from last week’s $650,000. Inventory has been decreasing lately but the Market Action Index (see MAI chart below) is falling also.  With days-on-market climbing, these are relatively negative implications for the market.

Supply and Demand

 

The market has been cooling over time and prices have recently flattened.  Despite the consistent decrease in Market Action Index, we’re in a Seller’s Market.  If the MAI begins to climb, prices will  likely follow suit.  If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer’s zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

Prices

While the median price in the Maple Leaf-Ravenna- Roosevelt areas hasn’t moved much in the last few weeks, we are relatively close to the market’s high-watermark.  Watch for persistent downward shift in the Market Action Index into the Buyer’s zone as a leading indicator of the price strength subsiding.

Roosevelt is a neighborhood in north Seattle, Washington. Its main thoroughfare, originally 10th Avenue, was renamed Roosevelt Way upon Theodore Roosevelt’s death in 1919. The neighborhood received his name as the result of a Community Club contest held eight years later, in 1927.
