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.

A new listing came on the market just yesterday at $1,225,000, bringing both the median and the average pricing for homes up in The Kirkland Highlands from last week.    We’re seeing the typical spring activity with more homes coming on the market and some sales happening. Check out my eastside blog report for the full story on Seattle/Eastside real estate activity. Real estate activity is starting to look really good!

Closed sale:

$319,000  Mid-entry home priced at $299,000. It was on the market for 12 days and sold for 10% above the asking price.

****This home was subject to bankruptcy court approval, so it was an incredible price as shown by selling for 10% above the asking price.
