Latest Real Estate Buzz in Kirkland WA Highlands, 5-24-10

In Kirkland WA, Kirkland, WA Real Estate, market statistics, Real estate, sellers on May 25, 2010 at 10:25 am

Another home in the Kirkland Highlands’ neighborhood came on the market above $1 million, something which was fairly common in the past, but not as typical this past year with the drop in Seattle-eastside home prices.

The real estate statistics below reflect the activity in The Kirkland Highlands for the past two weeks. All data is taken from the NWMLS through Monday of this 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 corridor. The neighborhood has the best of both worlds, a little isolation without any through traffic, but just seconds from everything.
