The word loft is used in real estate to describe a myriad of floor layouts, but only one meets my expectations. This week I’m going to continue the theme of Capitol Hill area condos, that really have a loft above. Last week was unit 201 at The Opal, which is nice but very pricey. Next… Read More
On this 17th day of December my editor said to me: 29 sales last week in the slump month? Obviously sales aren’t solid as Matt has reported last week, but big sales are still coming through, with two in Olive 8 last week over $450k, and a $1.7 Mil sale in Fifteen Twenty One. Seven… Read More
Thanks to a reader for sending us a tip that a rental at 19th Ave Lofts is about to hit the market: From the tipster: Unit #305 is about to go on the rental market. This is one of a few unique units in our building- bumped out living space with floor-to ceiling windows on… Read More
Fans of 19th Avenue Lofts, rejoice! Top floor unit #312 just hit the market. 1,000 square feet, two full baths, two decks, two parking spots and possibly, two spots for beds. At $429k, it isn’t exactly a bargain. The owner did pay $425k back in 2005 so not too surprising they don’t want to eat… Read More
A reader sent me a pointer to this Craigslist ad for a place at 19th Ave Lofts and they had this to say: I’ve been in this unit. It’s immaculate and has a very cool custom metal staircase with a transparent plexiglass landing at the top. We have to agree — that floating staircase is… Read More

Seattle saw 33 sale transactions close in condos and townhouses last week.

Notable in resales was… Read More

After a road ride out to Alki I only made it to three lofts today before heading out to hockey. Trace Lofts First I checked out #308 upstairs to me at Trace. Looks like a great unit for a single person. Would be a little tight for two though! They didn’t get much traffic through… Read More

19th Ave Lofts #203 is available for $390,000. But I think the kitchen needs updating (if I were to update it I’d push it back under the sleeping loft to open up more of the living room): #311 also just came on the market for $475,000 for 983 square feet and two parking spots. Compare… Read More

If you have anything to add let me know. 2200 vs. Cosmo 36 vs. 60 19th Ave Lofts 1812 19th Ave… Read More
