Seattle weekly wrap-up: a few more new listings last week

By November 7, 2021

Market Report

The big news last week was that our fire insurance claim was closed! This is the claim we filed after a fire on April 28th destroyed the inside of our floating home (before photo). Fortunately, we weren’t living there since we were eight months into a nine-month remodel, but it stung having the reset button forcefully hit on our remodel and mixing up our housing plans just ahead of summer. With the insurance drama finally behind us, we can now start demo and rebuild. I’ll be posting Instagram stories @mattgoyer if you’re curious in following along. However, we won’t be moving in; we’re living in a new floating home now (same dock) and have plans in motion for it.

In real estate news you can use:

  • last week we saw a few more listings than the week before (see graph above)
  • buyer activity was also up a bit (see graph below)
  • like Shoresmith, Encore in Columbia City has flipped from being sold as condos to now rented as apartments
  • numbers for September are out, blog post still coming, but median single-family home price is up $10k to $840k and condo pricing is flat
  • we offered and won on a Central District home that had 6 offers and went 10% over
  • we still have a great Capitol Hill co-op listed

In Seattle, this loft in Belltown caught our eye as did this custom home in West Seattle. In terms of getaways, are you a tiny cabin on remote island person? Or a nearly finished new ski house at the Pass person? (Or you could build your own place at the Pass…)

I’m the founder and managing broker of Urban Living. I love lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns but will help you buy or sell just about anything.
