Laurelhurst homes

There’s no question why Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood is so sought after.  Amazing Lake Washington and Cascade Mountain skylines, mature landscape with tree lined streets, and 1930’s traditional style homes meticulously maintained are just a few reasons.  Homes are handsome in Laurelhurst with many estates carrying on from generation to generation.  However, just like other popular Seattle neighborhoods, Laurelhurst is not exempt from showing signs of new construction or new modern homes.Laurelhurst homes

A perfect example of this are two Laurelhurst new construction homes, which sold in the last six months on Ivanhoe Place NE.  Both homes both have four bedrooms, four and a quarter bath on 3600 square feet or more of living space.  Great open floor plans and thoughtful architectural design.

The Seattle real estate market has maintained it’s thirst to build new construction homes now more than ever particularly after shaking out of the recession.  The low supply and high demand reinforces builders will be profitable.  Laurelhurst Brokers are out in full force finding tear down properties or sub dividable lots to keep building what buyers want to buy.

In fact, over just the last 30 days, we have seen 18 Laurelhurst properties go under contract between a buyer and a seller: 9 of those Laurelhurst listings are still pending to close and 9 have closed.  The median sold price is $901,000 and with just 8 days on the market, the demand for a piece of Laurelhurst living is very clear.

Can you still find properties for sale in Laurelhurst to renovate, tear down, refurbish or possibly an estate sale?  

The answer is yes.  Keep checking back on Cooper Jacobs Laurelhurst View Homes for new inventory of Laurelhurst possibilities!
