Market Insights: Normalizing with Increased Inventory Levels

June 21, 2021 | Market Insights from DAA Seattle’s Dave Blake.

This past week, we had some buyers back in the lanes who had been less aggressive over the last few weeks. We have been experiencing a market shift as of late, but we definitely experienced an uptick in activity. Every week we are welcoming new consignors and buyers to the sale. With online attendance still outweighing in-lane presence, dealers across the west are taking advantage of our inventory levels.

We welcomed Auto Center of the Northwest last week, and their sale produced 100% conversion. Ford and GSA offered attractive product and also tallied high 90% conversions as pricing levels begin to meet the demand.

Mark your calendars: This Wednesday, June 23rd we will run 50+ bikes in Seattle during the MAG Motorsports Sale starting at 10:30 a.m.

Thank you to everyone that participated in our annual Helping Hands fundraiser to support our local non-profit partners: The Auburn Food Bank and Nexus Youth and Families. We provided a link on our website for external participation and we expect that with the MAG match, we will reach our $50k goal.

I hope you all enjoy the beautiful weather and look forward to seeing you Friday when we “Sell some Cahs!”

Dave Blake, General Manager
