Must See Open Houses: October 11th and 12th

By October 10, 2014

Bitter Lake, Condos, Houses, Queen Anne, View Ridge, West Queen Anne School

Have you noticed how many listings have no furniture or are staged lately?  It seems to be a common theme today, maybe an indicator that the market has peaked.

With only 290 open houses, this looks to be a slow weekend.  We’ll start in View Ridge, travel northeast to BitterLake, and then finish in Queen Anne.

7330 57th Ave NE

Neighborhood:  View Ridge

Open Houses:  Saturday, Oct. 11th, 1-4pm     Sunday, Oct. 12th, 1-4pm

A 1961 contemporary listing for $798,500, with 3 bedrooms, 2.25 bathrooms, and 2,420 square feet.  Lots of glass to see the views, a backyard, and nice mid-century modern features.  They list hardwood floors in the flooring info, maybe under the carpet?

Open Houses:  Saturday, Oct. 11th, 1-4pm     Sunday, Oct. 12th, 11-1:30pm

Brand new modern listing for $795,000, with 4 bedrooms, 2.25 bathrooms,, and 2,777 square feet.  Large open living area which leads to the patio and back yard.  Nicely done kitchen.  Windows need to be taller.  I like how the garage door is recessed from the front, but please stop using the same garage door as everybody else.

Neighborhood:  Queen Anne

Open House:  Saturday, Oct. 11th, 12-3pm

A 2 story unit at West Queen Anne School.  Listing for $389,000, it has 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms, and 908 square feet.  Great location; quiet, with easy access to Queen Anne shopping and downtown.  Walking distance to coffee, donuts, ice cream, and pizza.  With HOA dues of $841 (land is on a long term lease), probably overpriced.

Built in 2002, it’s a nice studio with plenty of light and a good layout.  Listing for $229,000, it has 1 bathroom, 440 Square feet, and comes with parking.  It’s on the Route 1 bus line, and has a couple of stores in the building.  Off the beaten path otherwise.  $520/square foot is high even for Queen Anne.
