Madrona Mid-Century Before and After

Remember all of those short sales that depressed prices a few years ago? Remember all those poor suckers who endured months of waiting for bank approval with no guarantee of actually getting a house?

The buyers, now sellers, of this remodeled mid-century were those suckers, but look who’s laughing now. They bought this fixer in Madison Valley / Madrona in 2011 for $295K and obviously had a vision because…well…these are the previous listing photos:

But after a few years of remodeling (and probably no small chunk of change invested), they made it look like a true MCM once again. Here are a few of the current listing photos:

Where in the city can you find a big two-car garage like this? Lots of room for all my bikes and skis.

It’s listed now for $479,000 with 500+ views on Redfin.com after less than 24 hours on the market. Looks like this one might be worth seeing this weekend. Open houses are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday 2-4pm.

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.
