The average condo and townhome in Kirkland is selling about 10% over list price.
Some are selling in even more extreme bidding war scenarios and I’ve highlighted 3 that I have shown and toured in the last 30 days.
12016 101st Ave NE #G2, Kirkland 98034-6734
At this condo in Juanita, my Buyer and I stood outside in the rain and talked about the siding that day. You could literally put your finger in holes in the siding where it was rotting and without a doubt the condo would need future work/repairs.
It was listed for $300,000 and sold for $367,000.
The next condo, located behind the Kirkland Post Office -used to be apartments. My sister rented here for years. The insulation is thin (read: you can clearly hear your neighbors) and the bi-fold closet doors used to fall off.
224 9th St #G-304, Kirkland 98033
Kirkwood condos, top floor end unit. This condo is located conveniently close to the Kirkland Cross Corridor trail. However, it was built in 1985 and has textured walls and popcorn ceilings and is in need of a master bathroom make-over.
If you go further North to Bothell, Kenmore and North Kirkland the average list over sale price is 5%.
This is a lot more manageable for most 1st time home buyers. I think if you can focus on this area you will:
- have a better opportunity to compete in a bidding war
- not have to bid as high
- experience greater growth in your equity over the next 3-5 years
