Own a Piece of History in Ballard

Yesterday’s most-clicked property on Redfin is a sweet little house in Ballard that looks to be in remarkably good condition considering it was built 106 years ago and is one of the first homes to be built in the area.

Not only is the 1,370 square foot 2 bedroom, 1 bath house an original resident of the area, but its also reportedly on the historical register. It’s on the market for $400,000, which compares favorably with the surrounding area’s average of $556,988. However, looking at the $/square foot, this home is priced right at the average for this part of Ballard at $264. (It was last sold almost exactly 3 years ago for just $295,000, making the appreciation on the house about average for the area as well) For the price, you get good proximity to downtown in a nice part of Ballard, close to Salmon Bay Alternative Elementary and Middle School and the award winning Ballard High School. The home is open today from 12-2 and Sunday, unless they get an offer first.
