Green Lake Real Estate Activity

Green Lake Real Estate Activity

I heard the other day on the radio that it costs more to build a home than buy one.  Good thing Green Lake has about 50 active homes right now ranging from $164,000 to $1.145,000 and based on their total square footage that’s still in the average $252.00 price per square foot.  That’s important to remember when you’re either a buyer or a seller.

How’s the SOLD market?  Solid.  Within the last thirty days, 19 homes sold just in Green Lake alone with a median price of $516,000.  Super afford for a neighborhood that keeps giving back. 

I was reminded of this last evening.  I took my dog Zeus for a late night walk after a very hot summer day here in Seattle.  We strolled through the main drag (N. 56th Street) in Tangletown.  And I was flooded with sounds of people gathering in their front yards, sipping margaritas at Bandolero and Tequila Bar, and playing pool at Leny’s (the most perfect dive bar).   Ask for the Leny’s Large.  Lots of other walkers out with their dogs too exchanging small talk as we pass.  I was reminded what great neighborhood we have here!  Ask me today about a Green Lake tour of homes just for you.

Dear Curious in Green Lake

Have you ever walked, biked, drove past a house a million times on your way to work and thought to yourself “I wonder what that house looks like inside?”.  As soon as you see a for sale in the yard, you immediate make a b-line to the colorful flyer hoping to find a price, just out of curiosity of course. 

I had one of those today.  This really cool, perfect starter home in Green Lake has been on the market just a short time which is on my way to Duke’s Chowder House one block southwest.  I’m very smitten of the beautiful fir tree in front for privacy, convenient alley, and an acutely maintained yard.

Once I walked up to the welcome mat, the house is better than I imagined.  Clean, mid-century lines, updated kitchen with eating nook, two bedrooms + full bath up and a completely refurbished lower living space including a cozy fireplace around the oversized sofa, another bathroom and extra storage.  The soft carpet under my feet compliment the twist of  a modern edge throughout the home.  It’s a nice touch of the old and the new – which translates Green Lake homes to a “T”.  

Great home, great price – under $500,000 – and close to everything in east Green Lake.  You can walk your kids to Daniel Bagley Elementary (Montesory to 5th grade) on 80th Street, get some amazing Pho Vietnamese soup, or just kick it at Green Lake park in the wadding pool.  Perhaps you’re in need of a 3 mile jog with your dog.   If you do, grab a beer on the outside deck at Duke’s Chowder House on your way home to this totally efficient Green Lake home. 

Will you be impressed as much as I was?  Give me a ring or email and I’d be happy to show you the thoughtfullness of this home and why I think it’s such a great deal.
