Free Home Valuation

Do you know how much your home is worth? You might be surprised to find out that in this Seattle real estate market, your home could be worth much more than you think. Just since the beginning of the year, home values in some of Seattle’s popular neighborhoods are up 20% year over year. This indicates that low inventory and a rebounding economy were starting to show up in the market. As a result, the climate really started to shift towards sellers. In fact, sellers who may have been under water on their homes are actually able to turn around and sell their home with equity! Maybe you just have a few questions about what upgrades you should be making to sell your home for top dollar; you’d be surprised what a few cosmetic updates can do for your home value.

Let's use a real example from a home in Matthews Beach in northeast Seattle: This contemporary style single family home was originally constructed in 1986. It has four bedrooms and 2.75 bathrooms as well as 2,130 square feet of living space. The home has a unique split level floor plan with clerestory windows and skylights throughout. In 2003 this home sold for $355,000 and was resold for $410,000 in 2010 with few upgrades. The new owners took the opportunity to update the kitchen and bathrooms and now this home is on the market again. Three years later with a few cosmetic upgrades, the home is listed for $535,000.
