Ballard is one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods located just north of downtown Seattle stretching from Phinney Ridge and almost to Highway 99 to the Marina and the Puget Sound. Nestled next to Greenwood, Green Lake and Wallingford, Ballard is also one of Seattle's largest neighborhoods covering two ZIP Codes: 98107 and 90117. Surrounded by water to the West and the South looking towards Puget Sound or Salmon Bay and the Ship Canal, a major thoroughfare for boats in the Seattle.
Ballard is made up of residential streets with a lot of mixed architecture, shops, trendy coffee houses, restaurants, boutiques and low rise townhouses. In the heart of Ballard, there are several high density housing projects and townhouses. This is partially due to a 2004 project mayor Rice initiated to revitalize the urban housing area and reduce the amount of suburban sprawl overcoming downtown Seattle.
Ballard real estate market tends to slow during the summer but housing has been up over the last two years. There's been a surgeon population, and with low inventory, prices are expected to continue to rise. Ballard is one of the hottest neighborhoods on the market with the median rent of over $1200, a little bit higher than downtown.
At any given time there are about 10 to 20 properties for sale that meet the condominium or townhouse design in the Ballard region at any one time. These are typically priced from $250,000 to over $800,000 based on size, location, amenities and condition. One of the best things about Ballard is its diverse architecture and style. You're likely to find 100-year-old converted homes next to modern architecture and contemporary design.
On average there are about 30 properties total including single-family houses and condominiums for sale with an average price per square foot of about $400. The average home price that has sold over the last six months is about $530,000 with an average days on the market at about 14. Surprisingly, many homes do not last long on the market with a typical DOM of less than a week if priced correctly.
One of Ballard's newest condo complexes is Vik, with a move-in date around the first of summer, 2016. This complex features junior one bedroom units, one bedroom plus a den and two bedroom units located at 1760 NW. 56th St. Is one of the first of its scale since 2010. The building will feature 24 hour concierge service, a dog run and fire pit area with a rooftop deck, fitness room, bike storage and electric car charging stations in the garage. These 90 units will be priced under $400,000 making it a great value for the quality of homes, especially considering the supply and demand.
