Two Weeks Worth of Kirkland Highlands Real Estate Buzz

In Kirkland WA, Kirkland, WA Real Estate, market statistics, Real estate, sellers, Weekly market update on June 18, 2009 at 9:51 pm

No weekly real estate update for the Kirkland Highlands last week?  I had all the information ready to go when two things happened.  One was my computer telling me my “disk was corrupted” and, two, I was busy with clients and sold two homes. I had no chance to get anything done on any of my blogs.  So here’s two weeks worth of Kirkland Highlands real estate activity.

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.

The two price reductions in the Kirkland Highlands were both in the 400k range.  One home had been priced in the low 500’s and was reduced to just under 500k, a smart move for attracting buyers.

I just reduced the price on a Kirkland home I have for sale in a nearby neighborhood to below the 600k mark and it sold in the same week.  Every$100,000 price point eliminates buyers so if you think your home is worth just above a $500,000 or $600,000 price, f or example, it’s smarter to price your home for something like $499,950 or $599,950.  Your home will be noticed by so many more buyers and will sell faster and probably for a better price.
