One “Affordable” Unit Left At Leona

Leona has had a busy spring and summer. Erica tells me they’re at 11 closed and 2 pending, one in counter offer and 4 left. One of those five left is unit #8 at $450,000 (originally listed at $650,000). It’s a nearly 1,200 square foot one bedroom unit in a nice building (I toured it last summer).

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.

    The King County Record at http://www5.kingcounty.gov/kcgisreports/propert… doesn't show any sales in this building since you wrote about it last year. The last sale of the three recorded was in October 2008.

    I've noticed that for a number of downtown buildings. It seems there is a lag between when something records and when it shows up in that report. I think you could check http://146.129.54.93:8193/legalacceptance.asp?c… for more up-to-the-minute recording information but my level of investigative journalism has its limits.

    So close…

    Click through the 'more info' link on each unit, and you'll see many of the units have been sold within the last month or so.

    Ugh. If they can update the more info link why can't they update the list?

    Wow. Some of those recent sale prices are down 40% from what Matt posted last year. E.g. Unit 10 sold for $470k in July 2009 after being listed at $775k in October 2008 (see http://mattgoyer.smugmug.com/photos/371630307_c…)

    I bet the folks who bought at Leona in 2008 aren't too happy about that.
