Haven't picked your Halloween pumpkin yet? You should get on that. Only a few more weekends left before the big day and you don't want to be "that home." Herewith, then, is Curbed Seattle's updated map of where you can pick your own pumpkin.
Rustic and rural can still be luxurious; especially, on properties priced in the neighborhood of $2,250,000 and above. This 5 bedroom, 5 bath ranch has enough niceties for your horses and a lot to offer to humans.
Out in the Cascade foothills of Index, you'll find this purple Skykomish riverfront tiny house just waiting for someone to snatch it up for $150,000 (plus $78/month in HOAs) and make it their new getaway.
There's so much to see and do in Seattle but we understand. Sometimes you just need to get away. It's a good thing there are so many great small towns and getaways nestled within driving distance of the city.
Normally we stick to King County when looking back at the week that was in real estate sales but this Snohomish County sale was too big not to include. Along with that one is a $6.7M sale in Medina and a $5.5M sale in Bellevue.
Over the weekend, Mike Rosenberg wrote about the Seattle housing market for the Seattle Times and you probably know the topic before we even tell you: It's nuts. The majority of Seattle-area homes are now selling for over asking price.
According to the latest Case-Shiller data, Seattle-area single-family home values were up 10.8 percent in March from the previous year. That trails only Portland (12.3 percent) in terms of home price growth and more than double the national average.
NWMLS reported strong gains in new listings in April (up 13.6 percent from March) but as we've been seeing for a while now inventory remained well below the supply needed to consider this a balanced housing market.
If you like to fish, having the Skykomish River flowing by your deck is decadence. The lot for this tiny A-frame outside Index is 7,405 square feet. That, the 420 square foot cabin, and the a bit right up against the river will run you $93,000.
When the plans for ST3 were unveiled, there were some very clear winners and losers in terms of who was getting service and by when. Some folks were unhappy with the lack of a dedicated line to their neighborhood and they've got ideas about it.
We said you may rue the day you passed up Ruhe Estates, and a 95 percent price jump suggests we were right - if you're in the market for $7.8M properties, that is. This year's listing adds a second bit of magnificence; and attaches a 1914 farmhouse.
Inventory might have gone up a little bit in King County but prices hit a new high and the surroundinf counties are keeping pace. As Seattle Bubble bluntly puts it, "There’s never been a better time to sell your home."
Acreage for the sake of acreage can buy you privacy, but for this $2.15M property in Stanwood, 28 acres buys an unobstructed view of the Sound and the Olympics. With that much land there's plenty of room for the house, all 6,670 square feet of it.
