First Resale at the Residences at Fairview

2816 Fairview Ave E is the first townhome to resell at “the Residences at Fairview”. In fact, this townhome is practically brand new, it was completed just last year. I’m a big fan of this development. They’re premium, stylish townhomes, practically right on the water in the hidden gem of a neighborhood, Eastlake. They’re great… Read More

A Little Rain Never Stops a Seattleite from Shopping; 32 Sales Last Week

Last week we enjoyed the last bit of sunshine we’ll see in what seems like an eternity, and when the rain started to come down, those headed indoors to close on their home sales seemed to be flocking to the Capitol Hill and Downtown neighborhoods.

Eastlake Lofts Cash Only For Now

Reader Phil urged us to reconsider Eastlake Lofts Unit #205: When Katrina posted about this southeast corner concrete and steel loft last September, they were asking $330k. That has been dropped to $300k (short sale) and I see no mention of a special assessment that was a concern before. HOA Dues are a reasonable $379…. Read More

Big thanks to our friend Chad for taking us to go see 2930/2914 Harvard Ave E today. It caught our eye earlier in the week. Which is funny since it has been on the market for two months! But the front photo just isn’t that impressive. But once you dive in it is a mid-century… Read More

Exposed Concrete in Eastlake Lofts #205

Eastlake basically became dead to me when the restaurant Nettletown closed its doors. Maybe its replacement will be just as good (what is the news on Blind Pig Bistro these days?) which would be a definite plus if you were to buy this sweet Eastlake Loft that was listed late last week for $330K. That’s… Read More

Contemporary Loft Townhome in Eastlake

Yesterday, The Tim at Seattle Bubble examined the curb appeal for Seattle’s townhomes and he was able to come across only a few bright moments in a sea of yuck.
