NPR on Seattle: Condo Buildings Stand Half Empty

Last week NPR’s Marketplace ran a story on Seattle’s condo scene Condo buildings stand half empty, as part of a wider body of coverage on the Seattle real estate scene.

In it Jeff Tyler of NPR gets a tour of downtown condos with a Seattle auctioneer, tours Bellevue Towers, attends the 5th and Madison auction, talks to people who bought at auction and ends with a few sound bites from someone who writes a Seattle condo blog sick of fixing leaky toilets.

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.

    My favourite is also the condo which would've been easy walking distance to the DC Metro. Where not only was the condo dirty, cramped, dark, non-updated, and generally not up to being seen.
