There are currently 524 active residential homes for sale in Bellevue, with an average price of $967,875; up from our last report.  These numbers reflect an increase in housing inventory from the last report , but a continued uptick in pricing.  In addition, there are now only 64 short sales in Bellevue, at an average price of $524,336, another uptick in pricing, along with now only 9 bank owned homes, at an average price of $601,528.  It appears the market is now shifting towards a sellers market, as days on market continue to shift down and prices continue to edge higher.  These are positive signs that Bellevue's housing market is strong.
