Washington state’s housing market remained strong in the second quarter of 2015. Home sale prices, the number of sales and the number of new building permits were all up compared with a year ago.

The statewide median sales price for a single family home rose to $289,300 in the second quarter of 2015, 9.5 percent higher than the second quarter of 2014, though still significantly lower than the all-time high of $316,700 in the second quarter of 2007.
