Our friends moved to Kirkland and to celebrate their new home, we hit the town to bar hop the night away on foot! We ended the night at Arleana’s and what a joy it was. There happened to be live music, which was super fun, we met the owner, who is fabulous, and we enjoyed some delish bevies! It had a great vibe and we can’t wait to go back! Their sister restaurant is Island Soul in Columbia City, so whether or not you in Seattle or on the Eastside, swing through one of Theo’s wonderful restaurants.

April Monthly Market Stats

It’s the time of year when for-sale signs typically start popping up like tulips and daffodils. Houses show well in the spring, just as the number of homebuyers peaks and sellers feel more ready to list. While we are seeing the market thaw this spring, challenges remain, especially for buyers. There remain more buyers in the market than available homes, an imbalance that’s driving up prices despite mortgage rates that still hover in the upper six-percent range. Following suit from the prior two months, King County home and condo prices rose again in March. The median residential sold price of ..read more

Why Seattle Area Condos Are Hot Right Now
Urban Marco Blog
by admin
3w ago
With a warming housing market mirroring local weather patterns, one segment of the market seems to be outperforming others. Local condo sales can legitimately be termed as hot – here’s why. The market for single-family homes is uniquely competitive right now. There is an extreme undersupply of active listings compared to buyer demand, leading to multiple offers, short market times and escalating prices. King County residential sales from Q1 reflect these trends. The quarter ended with 17% fewer single-family home listings than there were a year earlier, and as a result the March median price ..read more

Seasonal changes are starting to take shape across the region and the local real estate market is experiencing cautious optimism. As we transition from winter to spring, home and condo sales are increasing, in both units and price. Low inventory means motivated sellers are finding success in about a week’s time, while buyers thread the needle between needing to present enticing offers and having to adjust their price ceilings due to recent mortgage rate increases. Last month was the second month in a row that King County home and condo prices rose. February’s median residential sold price in ..read more

Neighborhood Density Proposal Would Add 100,000 Seattle Homes

During last month’s State of the City speech, Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell proposed a growth plan that would make every Seattle neighborhood eligible for more density. The plan recommends 24 new “neighborhood centers” within 800 feet of transit and commercial areas – and would include apartment complexes as high as six stories. The proposal represents the most significant overhaul of Seattle’s land-use code in the past 30 years. It is part of a required 10-year update to the city’s Comprehensive Plan and would pave the way for at least 100,000 new homes over the next two decades. While this d ..read more

October Monthly Market Stats

With the fall season finally upon us, the behavior of the housing market is like the range in outdoor temperatures: somewhere between warm to cool. There’s a lower overall volume of home sales than in recent years, but at the same times buyers are moving quickly and assertively on highly desired properties, despite higher interest rates. Although these interest rates could make it more difficult for sellers to see significant price gains in the near future, the high demand for homes after a prolonged inventory drought in our region is likely to keep buyer activity on accurately priced listing ..read more
