Seattle weekly wrap-up: wild week for rates

Wild week! The week ended with the 30-year fixed climbing to 6.7% and the stock market was down again. Likely, as a result, the number of homes going under contract in Seattle was down nearly 8% week-over-week when we would have expected it to be up given the high number of new listings the week before. Anecdotally, we saw a $7.5m waterfront home come back on the market days before it was set to close because the buyer got cold feet over selling stocks to fund the purchase. But on the other hand, we had clients get outbid on a DADU in Frelard that likely went 5% over asking. We also heard of another Frelard home that ended up with 9 offers, 5 of those offers were cash.
