New Photos From Brix

I stopped by Brix this past week to get a tour of their 8 staged units. Check out my photos of Brix.

Prices at Brix range from $299k to $749. The best deals are in the low $300k’s but the really cool units start in the $500k. For sales they’re at 75 of 141 sold. Recently they had a few sales that were in the $500-$600k range.

They’re having a a pre-grand opening this weekend and a grand opening next weekend if you’re interested.

I liked a lot of the units. But I’m a view guy and unfortunately with the big apartment building going up across the street views are in short supply.

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 am not a real estate professional. The sales history of Brix makes me wonder what the definition of “sold” is:

    On May 20, 2007, they reported 68 of 141 sold, according to your blog.

    On Aug 26, 2007, there were 80 of 141 sold, according to Wendy's http://www.seattlecondoreview.com

    On June 8, 2008, Wendy's blog showed 89 of 141 sold.

    On Jan 31, 2009, there are 75 sold?

    Great pics Matt. I don't know why 1521 didn't trust your capabilities.

    Just don't show them pic #45.

    I heard out of the 75 sales they now show, 35 buyers have either walked on their earnest money, or couldn't get financing. I was afraid their may be an iceberg constructed by the hype Jones and Williams have been churning out, maybe this is just the tip.
    Buyers should demand honest representation of how many homes are sold before they let their earnest money go hard.

    Somehow I tend to agree. Can someone affiliated with Williams Marketing comment on the figures?

    I don't know, call me crazy, but this blog about condos reminds me of all the stories about arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion, and I just can't turn away…

    I like the story in the Seattle Times this morning about the Veer's apparent sheenanigans: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/dannywest

    I think the project is doomed. They may be forced to give the units away at some point, or default altogether.

    I visited the Veer recently, and one of the selling points — besides the 10% down and decent finacing offered on the GIANT COUTRYWIDE poster — was that the project had the backing of Vulcan. Of course, this is a crock, since the Veer is an LLC.

    Nice photography.
    The building however…
    From it's Soviet inspired courtyard to
    it's basement apartment ceiling pipes;
    it leaves me cold.

    Maybe it's good for people who like to live
    their private lives in public spaces, but I will pass.

    I'm curious; did you check:
    how much noise does a kitchen fan make in it's
    uninsulated 'dryer pipe'?
    What is the noise level when all the fans are running?

    Thanks for your energy.
    This is a fun stop on my cyber walk.
