Despite the craziness of the market we’ve been seeing lots of lower luxury sale numbers in recent weeks. Usually our Top 3 sales are all above $3M. This week, our highest sale doesn’t even hit that mark. Given the way the market’s been, is it a sign that luxury home sales are dipping? Or is it just seasonal?
Listed for: $2.995M
Size: 2-BR, 2.5-bath, 2,082 sf.
Location: 99 Union Street, No. 1201, Downtown
The Skinny: At the time it was listed it was the only unit available in the luxury Four Seasons Private Residences. Living here includes all of the comforts of staying in a luxury hotel (concierge, valet, room service) but actually having more than a mini-bar at your disposal. Interesting to see that it sold for $3.7M in 2008.
Listed for: $2.89M
Size: 5-BR, 4.5-bath, 5,504 sf.
Location: 9968 Lot 2 SE 7th Court, Bellevue
The Skinny: This Terrene Homes new construction overlooks downtown Bellevue. The main feature is the master suite with sitting area, European master bath/shower & walk-in closet. This place actually listed in April but dropped it’s price a couple times before finding the right buyer.
Listed for: $2.385M
Size: 5-BR, 3.25-bath, 3,210 sf.
Location: 208 Waverly Way, Kirkland
The Skinny: Listed on October 28, this place went pending on November 1. This doesn’t appear to be a bidding war, however, as the sale price came in slightly under ask. This 1996 construction features double french doors that open to a covered porch as well as brand new hardwoods and carpet and a chef's kitchen.
