In 2021, we are proud that several of our Happy Home listings that we sold set Seattle real estate records!
In this post, we are sharing how a few of our home listings performed compared to other similar homes in the neighborhood during the same time. How do we set these records and sell our clients’ homes quickly and for the most money possible? When we prepare our clients’ homes for sale, we have a tried-and-true process that we use to ensure that we allow you to make the most of your real estate investment when you go to sell.
For starters, we have have exclusive access to contractors (thanks to the Happy Home Contracting part of our business!) so we can get your home updates done in a timely manner. We know what buyers love, and can help guide every step of the home prep process. We also have stagers, photographers, and videographers who are all ready to make your home shine on listing day. Of course, we also have a robust marketing strategy to get your home seen by the most people possible!
The North Beacon Hill listing features a 2,700-square-foot layout, and includes 4 bedrooms + 3.5 baths + a 2-car garage. In July 2021, we listed the home for $1,649,880. We sold the house for $2,026,000, which is $376,120 over asking (aka 22.8% over the list price). Click here to read our behind-the-scenes blog post about how we did it!

Townhouse Sold For the Highest Price in the Neighborhood
Our Judkins Park listing was the most expensive townhouse to sell in an 8-month period during 2021 in the Judkins Park neighborhood. Here are other sold townhouses in the same area for reference.
We originally listed this 1,950-square-foot townhouse with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths for $975,000, and it sold for $1,112,000, which is $137,000 (or 14%) over ask price.

Richmond Beach Record:
Richmond Beach Area Real Estate Went Up by 7% While Our Listing Went Up By 22% in The Same Time Period
The median home price in the Richmond Beach area in Shoreline went up 7% from October 2020 to July 2021. At the same time, we helped our clients buy this house in 2020, they completely remodeled it, and then sold it the following year for 22% more than they bought it for 8 months prior. We were also the third highest price per square foot and the only home with no view to reside so high up the list. Takeaway? The neighborhood went up by 7% while our listing went up by 22% in the same time period!

North Beacon Hill Townhouse Community Record:
Our Townhouse Listing Sold For $120,000 More Than the Last Unit Like Ours in the Community to Have Sold
This townhouse community in North Beacon Hill was showing signs of declining prices. That is, until we listed this townhouse in the community and sold it for $120,000 more than the last unit like ours to have sold. Meanwhile, Seattle’s townhouse market was in a weak state. We beat one listing by 17% when the market had only increased by 3%.
