In  August 2016, the sales price per unit on downtown Seattle condos increased an incredible 31% over the previous month. According to the Urban Condo Spaces site, condo units sold, on average, in 17 days, possibly driving the number of buyers making offers sooner, due to the short turnaround. The highest price unit was on the 39th floor of Insignia Towers (see photo) and sold for $2.8 million.

Although the Seattle Times reported that 30-year fixed mortgage rates recently rose 3.46%, mortgage rates still remain at a historically low level. Depending upon the circumstance, this may be good news for buyers as well.

Developers base their projects on demand, comparing what’s charged per square foot to costs and timing needed for construction. Since the average sale price per unit in July rose from $755,828 to $993,320 in August, the condo building boon will most likely continue for some time into the future.

Summer in Seattle means fine weather, fun times and fabulous festivals. One such festival is right around the corner- the Belltown Crush Block Party!

This Seattle summer favorite event has grown to two blocks this year (from 2nd and Bell up to 4th and Bell) and will feature up to 25 local urban breweries and wineries as well as wineries from featured guest region, the Cascade Valley Wine Country. There will even be an onsite bottle shop to take home your favorites!

In addition to the abundant locally crafted libations, enjoy delectable bites from terrific local food trucks and a pig roast from Bell & Whete.

Sip and savor your way through the festival while enjoying live tunes from Belltown Beats and a Steel Drum duo, and don’t miss out on the grape stomping competition, to really get you into the spirit of the event and the summer. It’s a local favorite!
