Montage Now Leasing

Someone posted in the comments recently that Montage, a 23 unit building on Capitol Hill, has gone rental. Walking by this morning I saw this sign confirming it (I would have gone in but they weren’t open yet):

Checking out their site also confirms they are leasing:

What were these units selling for?

#203 – 1 bd/1 ba – 742 sf – $367,950
#305 – 1 bd/1 ba – 727 sf – $324,950
#402 – 1 bd/1 ba – 716 sf – $409,950
#405 – 1 bd/1 ba – 727 sf – $339,950
#501 – 1 bd/1 ba – 945 sf – $547,950
#604 – 1 bd/1 ba – 871 sf – $489,950

Who is going rental next?

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 walked past the 1111 East Pike condo development tonight. The sign was gone, and the front looked like it had been covered up with building paper. No noticeable progress has been made since the last time I looked months ago.

    The website (Coming Fall 2008) hasn’t been updated since June. Has this development failed as well?

    There sure is a lot of apartment inventory coming (back) onto the market. I guess rent will be the next thing to fall.

    These rental prices are about 15-18% over comparables in the neighborhood. with a fair amount of apt inventory available right now, it doesn’t look competitive.

    Those rents are going to have to come down. My husband and I have looked at several comparable 2/2 places in that area for a lot less than $2300/month. When decent houses in Greenlake, Ballard and Fremont can be had for $2000 apartment is going to be a really hard sell, no matter where it is.

    Hey Matt, hope you weren’t part of the Redfin layoffs. Question for the masses, are people actually paying rents like that in Seattle? Curious what people are really paying v. asking as I’m evaluating finally GTFO of the Bay area.

    nitsuj: The Montage 2/1.75 asking price is a couple hundred more than my comparable unit in a downtown Seattle highrise. The gap narrows if their parking is free.

    Hi Nitsuj, Monday was a sad day, we saw many friends leave. However, I am still at Redfin and have no plans to leave.
