The real estate statistics below reflect the real estate activity in The Kirkland Highlands for the past week and all data is taken from the NWMLS through Thursday morning each week.

The map shows most of the outline of Kirkland’s Highlands neighborhood.  The map address is simply for a street corner in the middle of the Kirkland Highlands.   For those  not familiar with the neighborhood, it’s a pocket of unique homes close to downtown Kirkland.  In some ways it feels like an island because it’s separated on the east by 405, the south by Central Way (the main route to downtown) and the west and north by the BNSF railroad tracks.  The neighborhood has the best of both worlds, a little isolation without any through traffic, but just seconds from everything.

For the first time in a long time, there’s a single family home for sale priced under $300,000.  I researched 2008 statistics and did not find a single family home listed in the Kirkland Highlands for under $300,000.

President Obama’s stimulus bill has passed the house and is now on its way to the Senate.   The link is to an article I wrote about some of the key real estate incentives proposed by the 2009 stimulus plan.
