water view: Lake Union Views in Seattle - Lowest-Priced Homes - 07/24/09 04:02 PM
Some of the best water view homes in Seattle are those around Lake Union.  From the north end homes looking at the downtown skyline, to Capitol hill's view of Queen Anne and vice-versa, there's a great mix of serene waterfront and bustling city life in the same view.
There are a handful of Lake Union view homes available now under $400k, which is fairly affordable considering the neighborhoods that surround the lake. 
In North Capitol Hill, there's a small 2/1 house at about 1000 square feet.  It looks to be a rehab project, but with the location and views, it's a … (0 comments)

water view: Blue Ridge Seattle Waterfront Home - Puget Sound Low-Bank Waterfront, Price Reduction - 07/06/09 11:40 PM

water view: The Value of a Water View Home - 06/22/09 12:02 PM
Water views are some of the most difficult factors to value when pricing a home.  There are so many contributing factors to a water view's value, it's hard to know where to start.  Everything from the body of water, direction, angle of view, fullness of view, proximity to water, obstructions, reflection, which rooms have view/which don't, and potential of future development/obstructions can weigh into a water view's value.

There's no perfect way to calculate the value, but there's also no denying that there is great inherent value in a water view.  The most straight-forward analysis involves condos, as they typically … (27 comments)
