April began with my new listing in Renton at 2523 Lynnwood Ave NE, and May saw the record-breaking sale of this same home. The house itself has a beautiful, classic craftsman design and the property is situated on a large lot that connects to a private green belt. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath arrived on the market at $660,000 on March 31st, but moved straight to pending only 5 days later! Despite being one of the smaller homes in the Highlands Community, we set a record breaking price. After reviewing the 6 offers on the home, we accepted one for $70,000 above the asking price at $730,000.
Current Seattle real estate trends are pointing to lightning speed turnaround times for active listings, and I can only imagine this will continue to speed up as we head into the busy season for real estate. If you are considering putting your property on the market, the timing has never been more opportune.
