Would you consider live/work?

By March 15, 2007


Amy on the Redfin Seattle Sweet Dig’s blog made an interesting comment about live/work spaces:

But if you run a Seattle business, then you have options for renting office space anywhere in Ballard (and other neighborhoods). So the decision comes down to — do I want to live directly above my business? Is this a good location for my business? Is the office space adequate? Is the living space attractive? Does this make financial sense?

Case in point: I talked to one agent who showed clients that building. The buyers opted for a condo on Capitol Hill instead, with separate business quarters nearby.

As a purely residential place, if you like its looks, go for it. Just be sure you’re prepared to live next door to a business (consider noise, hours of operation, parking, etc.). I guarantee you that potential buyers will, when you put it up for resale.

I’m the founder and managing broker of Urban Living. I love lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns but will help you buy or sell just about anything.
