Seattle Times Sunday

It’s been a few weeks since I last picked up a weekend Seattle Times to check out the ads. Here’s what the ads are saying this week:

3901 first: ‘Presales starting late June 2006′.

Asia: ‘75% sold’

Bagley Lofts: Hurry! Selling Fast! (How long has Bagley been on the market now?)

Bolero: ‘70% sold in 8 weeks’

Epic: ‘$0 deposit. $0 down. $0 to close’ and ‘I think he loves me for my condo – I love her condo’

Francis Fremont: ‘Only 4 left.’

Maison: ‘Only 7 homes left’

Mosler Lofts: ‘Now offering SW corner view homes – 1,146 sf – from $595,000′

The Morgan: 8 sold in 8 days.

Onyx: ‘40% sold in 7 days!’ (Though they’ve been selling them for much longer than 7 days?

The Parc: ‘Over 60% sold’

Taylor Anne: ‘65% sold in 10 days’

I really hate the Asia/Epic/Onyx ads. I wish they’d adopted the simpler approach of say the Vulcan development ads.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    I stopped by the 3901 First building’s broker open house today and was pleasantly surprised.

    There are 14 units, which range from 564 to 623 sq ft (the majority are about 610 sq ft) and all the floor plans are the same. Prices range from $289,950 to 299,950. One unit is already sold.

    The hallways and stairways look kind of cheesy (maybe they are being done last?), but the condos themselves are lovely. The layout is comfortable and the finishes are great.

    The website (www.liveat3901.com) has all the information they gave me and the pictures are a pretty accurate representation.

    The building is a conversion and was built in the 70s. I’m wary of its systems and degree of soundproofing.
