August 2013 Waterfront Real Estate Activity Report for Seattle, Eastside, Mercer Island and Lake Sammamish

Lake Sammamish and Mercer Island saw a flurry of waterfront sales activity in August with roughly 1/3 of all available private waterfront homes selling in that month alone. The Seattle and Eastside waterfront markets moved along at a much slower pace last month. Prices have remained remarkably steady, even as the pace of sales picked up on Mercer Island and Lake Sammamish, a good sign on continued market strength and sustainability.

This Waterfront Report for Seattle, the Eastside, Lake Sammamish and Mercer Island incorporates data for private waterfront homes on major bodies of water. It includes active, new and pending listing activity as well as monthly benchmarks for cost per waterfront foot and cost per living square foot of sold waterfront properties. Each report includes a map and a link to view that month’s listing and sale activity.
