The Townhome Explosion By the Numbers
Having helped a number of clients buy townhomes recently we were curious about the premium that different neighborhoods command so we dove into the 358 townhome sales so far this year to figure out dollars per square foot by neighborhood.
We found that for dollars per square foot, Eastlake leads the pack, but that is distorted by the high end townhomes at the Residences at Fairview. Not surprisingly Capitol Hill and Queen Anne top the list.
For the number of sales, it isn’t surprising that Ballard is leading the pack since it feels like every lot is under development there!
