What $500,000 Can Buy You in Seattle Right Now

New, 1 comment

Let's say you're looking for a place in the $500,000 range in Seattle, here's five options...

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's listings to see what your budget will get you across the city. Today we decided to find out what $500,000 can get you across the entire city. You tell us which place you'd put an offer on.

Let's begin in First Hill where the new Luma building is offering a 648 square-foot condo for $494K (plus $381 HOA). Unit 1504 is a one-bedroom, one-bath unit and like all Luma condos it features nine-foot cceilings and expansive windows to take in the views. Living here will bring with it quite a few amenities, including a 24th floor rooftop amenity level, fitness center and pet lounge.

Now we go to 4342 11th Avenue S in Beacon Hill where you'll find a 3-BR, 1.5-bath home asking $495K. Built in 1940, this 1,995 square-foot residence has rrefinished hardwoods, a new roof and new windows. Out back you'll find a one-car garage and a 360 square-foot shop with a well-maintained backyard nestled in-between. Asking $495K, this looks like a really solid spot for a young family to settle in.

We head to Ballard next where there's a brand new townhouse at 5917 20th Avenue NW asking $495K. The 2-BR, 1.75-bath home checks in at 886 square-feet but manages to space it all out over three levels. There's the living & kitchen space on the main floor with access to a private yard, office/guestroom on the second floor, and master suite up on the third.

It's off to Mount Baker where a modern 2013 construction at 2527 30th Avenue S just listed for $499K. It's 4 Star Built Green, so that's already one box ticked for eco-friendly folks. Interiors are super-bright and there's 1,480 square-feet of space to stretch out in amongst this 2-BR. Depending on your situation, that top-floor master could also work as a media room with deck access.

Finally we head up to Lake City where a 3-BR, 1.75-bath home at 12515 37th Avenue NE is on the market asking $525K. It's 1930's home that's been renovated but still maintains a lot of that old-world charm, especially in the kitchen. Inside there's plenty of room to live (1,860 square feet) and even a large utility room/shop downstairs. Outside there's a west-facing deck and two-car detached garage. Certainly more of a choice for those looking for something a little more suburban.
