The 5 Most Expensive Condo Sales of 2009

I spent some time digging through public records to find the 5 most expensive condo sales of 2009.

  1. $11.3 million on 2/2/2009 – Four Seasons Unit #1602. Likely Bruce McCaw’s pad. This unit was just $90k short of setting’s Seattle’s most expensive condo sale (which is I believe, #1703 at the Four Seasons which was sold last year for $11.386 mil.)
  2. $9.75 million on 1/2/2009 – Market Place Tower unit #1. TechFlash article on the sale and my earlier post. Sadly I never toured it while it was on the market.
  3. $5.4 million on 4/16/2009 – 1521 Unit 3600 – 2,863 square feet
  4. $5.35 million on 4/10/2009 – 1521 Unit 3602 – 2,601 square feet
  5. $5.29 million on 4/9/2009 – 1521 Unit 3700 – 2,847 square feet

Even though 2009 was a down year for condos around Seattle there were still some very expensive condos that traded hands!

If I’m missing a sale let me know and if you know the agents involved in these transactions I’d like to add that to the post as well.

    Matt, I'm not sure what thresholds for Purchase Price you're seeking here, but there were 8 sales at 1521 Second Avenue between $3MM and $5MM. Also, there were an additional 8 sales at Four Seasons that exceeded the prices of the condos you listed at 1521 Second Avenue.

  • All the sales I saw at the Four Seasons that were really high closed in 2008.

    One of the Four Seasons buyers was indicted on a massive tax fraud scheme last year. Must be nice to have criminal neighbors.
