2016 Greater Seattle-Eastside Annual Waterfront Report

Waterfront Report

2016 WATERFRONT YEAR IN REVIEW

Seattle-Eastside waterfront velocity slowed slightly in 2016—likely an extension of the oversupply of inventory that has plagued the $2,000,000 and above market. Highly desirable properties have continued to transact at handsome prices. But, those that require significant imagination, time and expense or present fundamental challenges (topography, access, exposure, quality of waterfront, etc.) have languished on the market for months.

Evolving from years past, more waterfront buyers today are attracted to not only homes with the right location and logistics, but those that are in exquisite turn-key condition. To be sure, there is still a tear down/rebuild-renovate market, but with the uncertainties of far-reaching waterfront codes and regulatory restrictions and an emerging ‘have it now’ mindset, we are seeing greater demand from buyers who want waterfront homes ready to move in to and now.

The highest waterfront sale in the region, at $9,751,880, was a Westside Mercer Island 9,750 square-foot contemporary just south of the I-90 bridge on 250 feet of level waterfront. Nearly tied with that sale was a 9,762 square-foot Laurelhurst traditional on 180 feet of level waterfront.

If you’re tired of gray’s near domination of neutrals for the past five years, then you’ll be pleased to see that Sherwin-Williams has gone with a hue that mixes it up. “Poised Taupe celebrates everything people love about cool gray as a neutral, and also brings in the warmth of brown, taking a color to an entirely new level. Not cool or warm, nor gray or brown, Poised Taupe is a weathered, woodsy neutral bringing a sense of coziness and harmony that people are seeking,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing.

Here are some top taupe rooms:

Glidden—Byzantine Blue

Glidden is keeping it calm and cool for 2017 with Byzantine Blue—a serene gray violet blue. “It stretches the boundaries of purple to borrow all of best qualities of blue and gray, making it an appealing color choice for nearly any room,” says Misty Yeomans, PPG…
