This Week’s Lockbox Activity Increases for Washington and Oregon
Supra, the major lockbox provider for the northwest, follows the trends of how many lockboxes are
opened by a Realtor and the recent numbers have people talking. When comparing the week of
April 23 – April 29 with the week prior, the number of times an RMLS™ subscriber opened a Supra
lockbox rose 13.9% in Washington and 3.8% in Oregon.
Team McAleer at RE/MAX Fifth Avenue in Sequim tracks market trends closely and sends out a
quarterly report to our clients and the numbers will very interesting to see at the end of the 2nd
quarter. From an anecdotal perspective, this is the most activity we have seen as far as new buyers
go in close to six years. We will see in the coming months if this was the time the market made it’s
rebound or if it’s simply a seasonal bump assisted by some beautiful warm weather.
At some point, all of those people who have been waiting for the bottom and wanting to get on with
their lives, will get on to buying new homes. Is that time now? I think the coming months will show
