Single family permits in the Seattle metro area were down 14% and multifamily permits down 6% through the end of May, compared to the same period last year. Meanwhile, the supply of homes for sale continues to be very low—just 1.77 months in King County and 1.49 months in Snohomish County during June. These are just some of the housing statistics you’ll find reported on in the latest Builders Bulletin.

The Builder's Bulletin is intended to provide a convenient way to track housing in our market and includes information from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, State of the Cities Data Systems, Office of Financial Management and the Washington State Employment Security Department.
