View Condo Comparison – Bellevue and Seattle

 

VIEW CONDO COMPARISON

Let’s look at view condos in 2 different markets – Seattle and Bellevue

SEATTLE 
How about this sale at Cristalla last week? Unit #1709 is a corner unit. It has west and south facing views with an outdoor deck. For 1,572 sq. ft. this unit seems to have it all. Island kitchen, bamboo floors, structural concrete accents, stylish lighting, floor to ceiling windows, spacious master bedroom suite, guest room, den/office and a gas fireplace. Not bad right? Seems pretty fair at a price of $840,000 or $534 per square foot. Listing details here

VIEWS – Elliott Bay, Olympics, City Skyline



BELLEVUE
Although its just across the lake, Downtown Bellevue provides a much different feel than Downtown Seattle. Less water, but diverse city views. I chose a unit at Washington Square Condos. Unit #1809, although smaller, offers a pretty compelling space. At 1,270 sq. ft. it has an open floor plan, island kitchen, granite counters, cherry cabinets, hardwood floors, gas fireplace, large master suite with soaking tub and shower, california closets, and a private patio to take in the city lights at night. Sale price of $590,000 or $465 per square foot. Listing details here
