Today I am hosting an open house in West Seattle the house is listed for sale in the $350,000 to $400,000 range. There are currently 22 homes in the West Seattle listed for sale at $400,000 and under. Many of these are affordable because they generally need updating, and that can be a great way to build equity in your home over the years, and get into a neighborhood that is close to Downtown Seattle. Homes closer to an urban area like Seattle are usually more desirable than homes in outlying suburban areas and have greater value over time, though they cost more initially.
Because of the shortage of homes for sale this coming Spring in the Seattle areas, this house is expected to have multiple offers and sell fast. I know this makes it very frustrating to be a buyer looking for a home right now, and if you are ready, knowledgeable and have an expert like me to help you with strategy, you can buy a home this Spring!
Update March 15th, 2016:
The house I hosted the open house at sold on March 11th 2016 for $417,000, 11% over the list price of $374,950. There were multiple offers which were reviewed on March 5th, the house was listed on February 26th, 2016. At my open house, when asked my opinion on what price I thought the house would sell for, I thought in the $410k to $425k range – close!
