Kirkland Real Estate News, 5-9-11

The homes for sale in the Kirkland Highland’s continue to fall in the mid-range of pricing for the neighborhood.  The homes for sale fall between $350-$749,999.  All of the homes that are new to the market this week were priced between the high 300’s to $575,000.

The two homes that were available for over $1 million dollars sold a couple of weeks ago.  This week’s closed sale happened to be a home priced under the $350,000 range.  It sold in just a few weeks.

If your home is in one of the price ranges where nothing is for sale, think about selling now before more homes come on the market.  If more homes are for sale, it will be more competitive.   If you’re not sure of your home’s value, feel free to contact me to find out what your home may be worth in today’s market.

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.
