The Seattle PI on the Condo Market

By March 21, 2010


On Friday the Seattle PI covered the condo market in, They’re practically giving away condos, right?

It depends on how much you plan to spend.

“The situation in the high-end market is lots of cancellations and fall-throughs,” said Glenn Crellin, director of the Washington Center for Real Estate Research at Washington State University. “This is the market segment stealing the headlines, but for most condo buyers and sellers, it doesn’t reflect their reality.”

So if you’re looking for a downtown penthouse and have well over $1 million to spend, then yes, this is a great time to buy.

However, the lower end of the market is behaving much like any housing market would be expected to behave. There is a lot of supply out there — more than 12 months worth. But that doesn’t mean drastic markdowns and auctions for the more affordable units.

I own and manage Urban Living, a boutique Seattle and Bellevue real estate brokerage. I love lofts, floating homes, new construction, and mid-century moderns, but I will help you buy or sell just about anything!
