WEATHER OR NOT—If you've been feeling like it's been extra gloomy this gloomy season, you are literally correct. According to Cliff Mass, Monday, December 7 was the darkest December day in Seattle in nearly 9 years. That stat actually comes from UW research meteorologist Mark Albright, who measured 0.44 MJ/m2 (mega Joules per square meter) on Monday, the lowest amount since December 14, 2006.
STATE O'THE MARKET—According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, there were 2,302 active single-family home listings in King County in November 2015. Per Seattle Bubble, that's the lowest monthly inventory that's ever been recorded in the area. That number is not only a whopping 24.9 percent decrease from October but also a 37.1 percent decrease from the previous November.
