Redmond is one of my favorite areas on the Eastside. It’s home to big wig player Microsoft and it’s also a hop skip and a jump into downtown Bellevue and Seattle, which makes it an attractive option for folks who prefer a quieter lifestyle, but still want be close enough to enjoy all the amenties of a big city. Consequently, I decided to play around with Redfin’s new neighborhood functions, and take a look at sales over the last 3 months in the Redmond area. Here’s what I noticed:
- Redmond is largely a family-oriented area, about two-thirds of sales over the last three months consisted of single family homes, compared to condominiums.
- Similarly, two-thirds of sales were 3+ bedrooms, compared to 1 and 2 bedroom places. In terms of size, nearly three-quarters of the homes sold were below 2,500 square feet.
- Slightly more than half of homes sold during this time period were $500,000 or less, while about 44% fell in the half million to $1 million category.
Some examples of Redmond sales not too far from Microsoft’s main campus include:
