The housing market in the Seattle area was hot in 2017, and January’s numbers show that 2018 might be even hotter. A report by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service found that single-family home prices in King County surged 20 percent in January versus the year before, and condo prices were up 23 percent against 2017. The median sale price in Seattle was $757,000, which beat out the high mark set last summer. What’s more, the Seattle Times notes, January has been the cheapest month to buy a home in each of the last two years. [Seattle Times]
