Kirkland Highlands Real Estate News, 3-28-11

There are 5 new listings this week, but four are new construction.   With nothing in The Kirkland Highlands for sale for less than $350,000, between $750-999,999, and over $1.5 million, if your home falls into these price ranges,  it would be a great time to sell your home.  Not sure of your home’s value?  Feel free to contact me to find out what your home is worth.

A month ago there were 12 homes for sale in the Highlands and now the number has jumped to 19.  There were no price reductions and no homes came off the market, all good news for the neighborhood.  If homes are not coming off the market because they did not sell and prices are not being reduced, then more sellers are pricing their homes at what the market will bear right now.

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.
