Seattle real estate prices are at record highs for September as discussed below, and Leschi and Madrona real estate continue to be very strong as well. In September Leschi had 11 sales close while Madrona had 7, both we more than the previous September where there were 9 and 6 sales respectively. But what is more impressive is the average price of the homes that have sold. Comparing this and last September, Leschi homes average sale price jumped to $676,536 up from $601,765 while Madrona improved to a whopping $870,857 compared to $587,500 in the previous year. As always these closed sales have to be taken with a grain of salt since the number of sales are low enough that one or two sales can distort the average, but still the numbers are hard to ignore especially when considered with the overall Seattle and King County market.
The median price of a single-family home in King County in September was $460,000, almost 10 percent higher than a year ago and 5.3 percent higher than August’s median price. According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, these stats indicate the best September for home prices in at least 10 years! The city of Seattle performed the best of all the sub-markets in King County in September, with the median price having risen to $517,000, 12 percent higher than September 2013. While the median price on the Eastside was higher than Seattle’s at $605,000, yearly appreciation was slower at only 6.3 percent.
