This is what I like about Zillow's local info data.
It's been over 2 years since this post and Seattle is currently showing about 7.2% Y-o-Y (August to August) appreciation overall.  The data breaks down easily into neighborhoods to show how the locations have improved.  An agent specializing in a neighborhood  data.
If I were counseling this investor today I'd suggest looking at the areas that haven't seen the average appreciation yet and find a buyer who is very motivated to sell in that area.

Rob does bring up a good point as in some cases REO's flood markets and houses fly off the shelves however thr prices are falling as they are selling. What you as an investor are looking for can be looked at in a few ways. The list below are the best area ( in my opinion) and have the least amount of downward pressure so for a long term investment you would want these areas. However if you want to flip you might want to look at lower end areas that offer larger discounts but still have a reasonable average days on market.

Ballard
Magnolia
Queen Anne
Greenlake
Ravenna
Madison Park
Medina
Kirkland
Mercer Island
Kennydale
Edmonds

All of these area are arguable however if you are going by the #'s and including short sales and everything the average days on market in Queen Anne and Ballard are by far the shortest for the "hot" areas.

Thats what you were looking for right?

We can do the leg work for you but let me suggest this.  The fewest days on market would suggest the hottest neighborhoods.   They don't usually offer the best value.  So which would you prefer.  The hottest (lowest time on market) neighborhoods or the greatest time on market, (desparate sellers willing to make deals?

Let me know and I'll crunch the numbers for you.
