Green Lake Home Owner Selling Tips: If you are thinking about moving right now, there are some different approaches you need to take to be successful. We have a list of qualified Green Lake buyers waiting for the right house to come on the market. You won't have any trouble selling your house. No one can argue that fact right now.
Inventory is low and it is common to have multiple offers numbering in the teens.
The issue is making sure you take full advantage of the the situation by maximizing the terms to your benefit.
Some of the considerations
Where are you planning on moving and what are the market conditions there? If you plan on purchasing a Seattle home in Green Lake or another hot neighborhood, then you should be well prepared for making a competitive offer. Many people like to sell before moving, but in today's market if you have the ability at all to purchase and then sell your Green Lake home, then you have a safety net of making sure you secure your new home before you sell your current one.
Pricing: We can get you far more money then you probably imagined for your home. That is just the reality of the situation right now. Let us know what your timeline is and we can give you a better idea of price as well as provide you with a detailed market analysis to show you what is going on on a day to day basis. Real estate changes daily and it is important to rely on an expert on the street.
Inspections, Preinspections, disclosures. Be prepared for buyers to preinspect your home before making an offer. This is so they can safely waive their inspection and offer you a stronger contract. Many buyers are also just waiving the inspection without preinspecting. In addition to a traditional structural inspection, many buyers are having a sewer scope performed on homes they are putting offers in on. Be prepared to possibly disclose newly discovered information about your home as a result of things that could come up in negotiations if you accept an offer subject to inspection. Choosing an offer that has either completely waived the inspection or has waived it based on a preinspection protects you from the possibility of having to disclose additional information you may not otherwise have knowledge of.
There are more things to consider. I am happy to sit down with you and discuss your particular situation to help you gain the biggest return on your hard earned investment.

Green Lake Real Estate in Seattle WA – Find Green Lake homes For Sale
My client is pregnant with twins. And while this new experience is super exciting for her and her husband, the four story townhome is not so much exciting. There is literally a bedroom on every floor. Not screaming practical here.
Time to stock up the car with plenty of bottled water and m&m’s.
They live in the uber-urban neighborhood of Wallingford and didn’t want to venture too far away since schools are a major focus now. So my checklist reads:
- Great Schools
- Walkable and Safe Neighborhood
- Practical Floorplan with Four Bedrooms, 2,000 sq ft.
- Easy Commute to Work
- $500,000 to $600,000 Range
Do any of these ring a bell?
Green Lake Beach
First we look in Greenwood because of an amazing 2011 home just built. Almost a perfect fit: 4 out of 6. Bonus: Two car garage! Overall, the neighborhood wasn’t for them. No sidewalks (one of those things I keep hearing about Greenwood) and walkability was poor. And I’ll give it a 5 out of 10 on the school-meter.
We look in Ballard. Too far West for commuting purposes. Plus they weren’t familiar with the neighborhood and I think this psyched them out a bit.
Wallingford was up next. They found some wonderfully updated bungalows in this uber-urban neighborhood. They were shocked by the price per square foot and really – when you’re having twins plus a nanny – you want square footage.
I guess I left the best for last. Green Lake was our final destination. Bingo!
Wallingford Park and Wading Pool
It was a Sunday afternoon and I was at an open house for my own Green Lake listing. She and her husband went to an Open House and fell in love with it. Who said Open Houses don’t sell houses? We wrote it up the next day. They can walk to PCC, Green Lake Park is across the street and when they get hungry they can walk to Duke’s, Blu Water Bistro then Ben and Jerry’s for dessert. Daniel Bagley Elementary is one of the top desirable k-5 elementary schools and they also have a Montessori. If private schools are more your thing, St. Joseph’s is right up the road on 80th Ave.
Happy Mommy. Happy Daddy. And soon to be Happy Twins this Fall.

Green Lake in Seattle
Green Lake is so pretty this time of year if the weather is cooperating. I had the great pleasure of walking in the bright sunshine yesterday under ideal conditions.
I walk Green Lake or Lake Union almost every day. Green Lake is just under 3 miles and Lake Union is about 6 miles. Green Lake is good for a slow stroll, a jog, bike, strollers, skates, blades, hula hooping blades, wagons, and just about any other thing you can imagine and it is nice because if you feel like going around twice, it is easy to do so. It usually takes me about 45 minutes to walk around the lake rain, snow, or shine at a fairly brisk pace. it is flat for the most part and has great scenic sites along the way.
I now count myself among one of the lucky who get to live within walking distance from the lake, but there is ample parking if you need to drive to get there.
If you are interested in Green Lake real estate, let us know – we would be happy to show you this wonderful Seattle neighborhood!

Green Lake Homes are Selling!
Here we are in December 2010 and rumor has it, one of the slowest times of the year for real estate. Or is it?
Taking a look at the real estate stats for the last 30 days in the Green Lake neighborhood, there has been 24 transactions. 18 solds and 6 pending to close. Not too shabby! Along with these closed or closing homes, there’s 15 active homes on the market right now. Looking at the last two months of inventory in Green Lake, it appears the inventory has reduced just a bit from 29 active homes.
The median price range has held steady in these autumn months - teetering back and forth between $493,500 and $498,000 but from October through today sellers have retained 98% of their list price.
Cooper Jacobs Real Estate currently represents three properties in Green Lake in all three categories - one closed, one pending to close and one active. We’ve seen a demand for quality, newer or newly remodeled homes.
Grandly Restored Green Lake Craftman
For example this beautifully restored craftsman on Meridian - blocks from Blanchet High School. Selling for full asking price, the seller honed in (with a lot of sweat equity) on her restoration efforts by keeping true to the era of the house but also keeping in mind energy efficiencies and qualities people are seeking for in a newer home today.
Newly remodeled Green Lake home
Another stunning Green Lake remodeled home is pending to close. The sellers also kept true to the beautiful craftsman’s lofty ceilings, bold crown moulding, and predictable roofline and pillars. They created warm and inviting rooms that their family shared the most time in, making practical spaces throughout the entire 2400 square foot house.
And last but certainly not least is a 2006 newer home in Green Lake for sale. If you’re looking for a spacious home with openess and comfort then look no further. This home has it all and just blocks to the lake for a morning walk or pedal on the bike commuting lane for work. The possibilities are endless for this over 3400 square foot house complete with 4 bedrooms and 4.25 baths. A huge garage and extra parking in the back is perfect for your recreational toys too!
