On Seattle's Greater Eastside, there were quite a few significant home sales in 2009. Here are a few interesting statistics from Eastside sales: Bellevue, Kirkland, Yarrow Point, Hunts Point, Clyde Hill, Medina, and Sammamish. These statistics are not compiled or published by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service. They're not official county records, just statistics I've pulled from the NWMLS for my own entertainment purposes.
Greater Bellevuehighest priced real estatesale: $6.096 million
Greater Bellevuelowest priced real estatesale: $61,000. This kind of home is a real steal when you add in the tax credit.
Greater Bellevue largest home sold: 10300 square feet (This was a home Brian and I sold this fall in Clyde Hill)
Greater Bellevue smallest home sold: 373 square foot studio
Greater Bellevue, most bedrooms and baths: 7 beds, 7.5 baths
Greater Bellevue, longest time on the market before sale: 829 Days (since 2007)
Greater Bellevue, shortest time on market: 0 days
I'd think the Eastside is in for a much better 2010 than 2009. Much of the high end real estate market was held back by the credit markets in 2009, but will likely be free up more in 2010. Much of the first time home buyer market has been moving along in the past year, and move up buyers should continue "moving up" throughout the next year.
