Today's latest buzz is the head tax for large corporations in Seattle. If you've not heard the details, this Seattle Times article sums it up here:

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve the new tax on for-profit companies that gross at least $20 million annually, a change that will take effect Jan. 1 and continue until Dec. 31, 2023. Mayor Jenny Durkan and the council will finalize how the city spends the revenue, an estimated $47 million per year, when they put together the city’s budget this fall.

Why? Because of housing prices in Seattle and what they feel is the resulting homelessness because of unaffordability.

I'm sure you've heard that King County home prices are on the rise but how much, you say? This chart, courtesy of Seattle Times, shows exactly how high. 

In short, buyers have become more aggressive. Fearing higher interest rates, they are offering high prices with less terms in the face of a record low inventory of homes. For those buyers who come to us saying, "I don't want to get into a bidding war." In this market, that's like saying, "I want to play basketball and not bounce the ball." Good luck with that! 


The median price for single-family homes sold in King County has recovered the ground lost since the last peak in 2007. Source: Northwest Multiple Listing Service (Garland Potts / The Seattle Times)
