Madrona’s Pike Station 70%+ Sold

Madrona real estateThe other week, I wrote about the proliferation of Madrona real estate development and what it indicated to me: that the Seattle real estate market is improving.  Since my blog, two things came to my attention to bolster my thoughts.  One, the May local real estate market numbers were released and again there were gains in the local real estate values: especially in certain Seattle neighborhoods such as Leschi/Mt. Baker.  Two, I noticed that the Pike Station on 34th and East Pike is reporting that 5 of the 7 Madrona townhomes have already sold.  As most Madrona residents know, the Pike Station is still far from completion so having a majority of the homes sold is encouraging.

Madrona Neighborhood Felt the Presidential Presence Yesterday

If you were driving in or around Madrona yesterday, there was no doubt you felt the President’s presence in the neighborhood. The Blume’s welcomed the President, along with around 75 guests for

Blume's Home For Sale

brunch yesterday afternoon and it was very obvious to all residents in the area that he was nearby. Locals were giddy with excitement at the possibility of an Obama spotting, traffic was a little slow going in and out of the neighborhood and secret service lined the streets, and patrolled the area surrounding the Blume’s residence. Who would have thought our neighborhood would be getting so much exposure this week! The Blume’s are not only getting major publicity for the Madrona area for hosting the President, but also because they are currently selling one of their properties. The home that the fundraiser was hosted is not the home that is for sale, which many publications had mistakenly written yesterday, but is in the nearby Broadmoor neighborhood.
