June Real Estate Report

The North Seattle real estate market has continued to be a high demand low supply market. While the level of inventory has inched closer to a one month supply, we are still nowhere near a normal market condition. Because of the low levels of inventory, historic low levels of interest rates, there are a lot of buyers in the market and not enough homes for sale to satisfy the demand. As a result, the average home in North Seattle sold for 13.5% more last month than it did in June 2013. If we compare median home prices, that increased by more than 12% from the previous year. With no shortage of interested buyers, this is a great market if you are looking to sell your North Seattle home for a premium price.

In Ballard, we saw similar trends as the rest of North Seattle saw with homes selling for a premium amount and closing in a short period of time. The demand to live in Ballard is evident in multiple ways as new construction homes are popping up everywhere. Another indicator of the strong sellers’ market in Ballard is the fact that homes are receiving multiple offers and closing for well above the asking price. If you are looking to buy or sell your home in Ballard, please feel free to contact me.

Ballard SeafoodFest Is This Weekend!

seafoodAs a neighborhood with deep maritime roots, it’s only fitting that Ballard would have an entire festival devoted to seafood. The 40th anniversary of the Ballard SeafoodFest (and second iteration of the accompanying BeerFest), takes over Market Street and Ballard Avenue this weekend with more than 20 food vendors offering everything from Filipino-style seafood to Northwest crab cakes and, of course, the traditional salmon barbecue.

BeerFest has expanded this year, and will be featuring some familiar names from around the neighborhood at its new spot near the main music stage at 22nd Avenue NW and Ballard Avenue. Look for Hilliard’s, Reuben’s, Stoup, Bad Jimmy’s, NW Peaks, and Peddler, along with many more breweries from around the Northwest. 14 ounce beers are $5.00, and there will be wine for $7 for all of you non-beer-drinkers. For more family-friendly activities, head to Ballard Commons Park for the skateboard competition, the giant kids’ slide, and vendors offering a wide array of stuff just for kids. Make sure to come back on Sunday afternoon for the kids’ superhero costume contest and the raffle drawing – the grand prize is two tickets on Iceland Air!

Festivities are slated to begin at 11:00 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and BeerFest wraps up at 10:00 each night. Click here for a full schedule of the events!
