I’m thankful that the number of homes for sale in Kirkland’s Highlands to continue to drop.  This week there are 27 homes for sale in the neighborhood.  Since there’s snow and Thanksgiving, rolled up into this week, I suspect the coming week to be a fairly quiet real estate week.

Enjoy your holiday time and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

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.
