Wondering what your neighborhood or townhomes are doing? Check out Redfin’s spreadsheet with all the details. For many neighborhoods you’ll find 12 months worth of data.

What Does the Future Hold?

The market is going to continue to be hot as the only new condo project on the horizon is Insignia, a $200 million project bringing us 338 condos but they won’t be here until late 2014 (read that to mean 2015). There is also two condos coming to Ballard.
