Weekly wrap-up: 16 offers in 30 hours!
The craziest bidding war story last week was this mid-century modern with a pool off Rainier that had 16 offers within 30 hours. Meanwhile I was surprised to see a $3.75m floating home go pending in one day! It will likely be a record sale, as the most expensive floating home sale was $3.575m in 2018. Other great homes went pending quickly like this NW contemporary bordering Carkeek and a Meadowbrook mid-century with a pool. Or how about this Yarrow Point home that just sold for $8.8m when it sold for $6.95m two years ago!?
Last week we saw more new listings and buyers going under contract than any other week this year – showing continued enthusiasm for Seattle real estate. Best week YTD for new listings!
Given the hot weather and water, this $4.8m waterfront mid-century Mercer Island home with a pool is at the top of our list or this $8.5m Eric Cobb Kirkland waterfront masterpiece. No pool and not waterfront, but we like Lane William’s House of Planes at $4.85m.
Back in the land of reasonable pricing, this $1.7m Leschi home designed and built by noted African American Architect Leon Bridges in 1968 is amazing. Or this View Ridge contemporary, or $1.6m Mercer Island contemporary. More affordable is this artsy hideaway mid-century in North Seattle, or this West Seattle mid-century.
Did you see former Seattle Mariner King Felix is selling his Clyde Hill home for $7.8m?
Finally, need to get away from the city? Here’s a $4.4m Ralph Anderson on Bainbridge Island! Or you could build on Bainbridge.
Yesterday we were busy flipping our Magnolia townhome and Eastlake houseboat pending. However, we are still looking for buyers for our Queen Anne Modern, Ballard live/work and Belltown live/work loft. Know anyone?
Enjoy the heat!
