Seattle weekly wrap-up: another record # of homes pending
Jokes aside, I was surprised to see the number of new listings in Seattle decline this past week by 5%. Conventional wisdom would have had new listings declining during spring break and increasing afterward and instead, we saw the opposite! However, buyer demand continues to be very strong with the number of homes going under contract last week in Seattle setting a new record at 362. (The Eastside is mirroring what we’re seeing in Seattle.)
Of the 352 new listings this week our faves are a West Seattle modern pending in 2 days (!), a new construction $7 m Broadmoor home pending in 4 days, a Paul Hayden Kirk inspired midcentury in Blue Ridge, a Washington Park mid-century, a contemporary remodel in Madison Valley and finally a decent looking townhome. Most notable would be that a noted art collector is selling his condo perched above Harvard Market. I didn’t even know there’s a condo up there! (There’s actually two.)
For getaway places we like this place on the water on Bainbridge.
