Real estate: Demand still easily outpacing listings

Kitsap County home buyers are still gobbling up houses faster than they can come on the market.

Home inventory remained very low in February, with 830 active listings at the end of the month. That was despite an uptick in new listings (15 percent higher than in February 2014).

Pending sales were up 24 percent compared with the same time last year, according to fresh numbers from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. 

The median price for a home in Kitsap bumped up $10,000 from January to February, reaching $235,000.
