Seattle New Construction Update: 62 Units Left

Last we checked in March there was 97 new construction condos for sale. Checking today we’re down to 68 new construction condos left on the market (a search of Redfin shows 35 new construction condos for sale). Note that we didn’t receive updates for two projects so there are likely more sold than that.

Million dollar question: when will we see the first apartment conversion?

Things you should know:

  • The numbers only include inventory of new construction sales in these buildings, some may very well have resales on the market that aren’t reflected.
  • When I didn’t get a pending number I calculated closed sales as Total-Available
  • % Sold = Closed/Total
  • If I made a mistake or forgot something, drop me a line at I will correct it and update the post.
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, 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.
