1310 E Union St - 301 - Exterior

1310 E Union, developed by Liz Dunn, is indisputably our favorite condo building in Seattle so it is exciting to see a unit hit the market, but it is unit 301 which has been on the market but didn’t sell. This time though it is priced at the low low $615k (it is going to… Read More

457 39th Ave E - Exterior

457 39th Ave E just hit the market for $895k. It last sold in 2012 for $685k.
