Seattle-area home market was nation’s hottest for 2017

Mike Rosenberg | Seattle Times 

Seattle finished 2017 as the hottest housing market in the country for the entire year, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

Single-family home prices for the metro area that spans from Tacoma to Everett grew 12.7 percent in December from a year prior, according to the monthly Case-Shiller home price index, released Tuesday.

It was the 16th month in a row that Seattle led the nation in home price increases. That extends a local record, and is the longest streak in the nation since the dot-com bubble in San Francisco around the turn of the century.
