I got a postcard from the Seattle Rental Group yesterday and their examples of recent lease amounts caught my eye. Especially since I just leased my place! Wish I had received this a few weeks ago :). The Cristalla $8,750 3 bd + den 3.5 ba 3,393 sq ft Escala $2,500 1 bd 1.5 ba… Read More

Avalon Loft Remodeled By Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam

Often times when the primary photo of a listing is a view photo I never click through to check the place out. For whatever reason, I clicked on 22 John St Unit 39 this morning to find the place not only has a view of the Sound and the Space Needle but the place is… Read More

A Visit to Howell Street Lofts

Last weekend was Sanctuary and this weekend was a preview party & open house for Howell Street Lofts. The lofts are a 3-townhouse project on Howell between 18th and 19th on Capitol Hill. I stopped into the party and took a few photos; in addition to taking the opportunity to meet the team behind this… Read More

What a difference a week (and less snow) makes! Last weekend, as the snowpocalypse was calling it a wrap there were 33 open houses scheduled; however, this week you have 81 condos and townhouses to choose from in Seattle.

Upcoming Waterfront Seattle Events | Jan-Mar

The New Pioneer Square has a rundown of the upcoming events for Waterfront Seattle. First one up is an informal discussion about Climate and Context on Jan 31. We’re just starting to get familiar with this huge project and these talks seem like a great way to get involved (we might even have to mark… Read More

Grungy Brick in North Capitol Hill

And when I say grungy, I mean that in the nicest possible way. The exposed brick in this North Capitol Hill condo isn’t the clean, new kind of exposed brick; instead, there’s some history in those walls and I like it! Located at 1508 10th Ave E #304, this 1-bedroom, 1-bath condo has a healthy… Read More

Live/Work at 2200 Westlake for $500K

This live/work at 900 Lenora St #W104 has been listed since November but it looks to be an interesting loft + unfinished commercial space for the entrepreneur in someone. The 1-bedroom, 1-bath unit with 1,380 square feet, 2 levels, and a street-side entrance is asking $500K.

Interesting Sales Last Week

Wow, what a weekend. I hope you take the time to get your fill of the shiny, new condo project at Sanctuary because that is likely to be the only one we see this year. Drink it in (we sure are). In other news, only 13 condos and townhouses sold last week. Notables include: Escala… Read More

Sanctuary Tour & Photos (2012)

Way back when Sanctuary was under construction the first time in 2009, Matt was lucky enough to get a tour and took lots of photos. And those photos (plus others used for marketing) are pretty much all I’ve seen of this place until today’s preview when I finally got inside. All of the units are… Read More

Windermere Contemporary

Matt plucked this contemporary home out of the new listings this week and if you are looking to live near Magnuson Park and blocks from the Burke Gilman then this is worth a look. A vaulted ceiling lets in lots of light but what really catches my eye is the finished wood fireplace (never seen… Read More

Window Systems (+ other photos) at Sanctuary

Realogics sent over some additional photos of Sanctuary that I haven’t seen before — especially the ones of the new window system. I was hoping to get my hands on a price list as well (it’s not up on the site yet) but sounds like they’ll have that ready next week. Closed: Open: Here’s a… Read More

Good thing Gray Mag was hip to it and… Read More

A 2-bedroom, 1.75-bath condo on the 15th floor of Newmark Tower was just listed. Looks to be a stylin’ place with sliding doors and hardwood floors. Newmark Tower is a bit of an unknown to me but here’s what I can tell you. It’s right downtown on 2nd & Pike at an address that is… Read More
