Interesting Sales Last Week

By February 20, 2012

Escala, Hjarta, Pontedera

In what is now apparently a bi-monthly check-in, looks like Seattle saw 29 condos and townhouses sell last week (and about 29 the week prior of which the only sale of note was a unit at Hjarta). In the past week, more new construction condos sold in the form of two at Escala (#1505 for $795K, #1008 for $645K) and a top floor unit at Pontedera (which isn’t typically on our radar, to be honest).

And in resales, a couple of condos on Boylston Ave E caught our eye.

721 Boylston Ave E #201
721 Boylston Ave E #201

This 1-bedroom in The Belmont (an oldy & an Anhalt) was listed mid-September and went pending 4 months later for $350K (after one price adjustment. That’s 937 square feet with “state of the art renovation” that sounded pretty high-tech with its updated lighting w/auto dim, wired for cable+, and media closet.

Pretty much across the street, a 2-bedroom in the Coach House of Harvard Estates sold for $819K — $26K below its original purchase price in 2005 and $501/sf. Listed in October, the 1,635 square foot condo was pending by early January.
