Marselle Photos – 1 Bedrooms, Townhomes, plus Amenities

So far, the Marselle has achieved 11 sales and two pendings.  The units themselves are pretty nice, with location only three blocks from the city center.  highway-99-tunnel

There’s 2 types of units that we expect to be very popular at Marselle.  The 1 bedroom plus sizable den, and the townhomes are very nice.  Here are some pics of their modeled 1 bedroom + den:

As mentioned in a post from our first visit, the townhomes are also a splendid buy.  We took pictures of unit #705, which is just under $650k.  The 2 bedroom plus den has soaring ceilings and a full on view of the Space Needle from the living room and bedroom, in addition to its own rooftop terrace access.  We sure would love to see the view from that unit at night!  Here’s the pics:

Marselle: A Building of Some Distinction

July 29, 2009 by  
Filed under Belltown, Featured, Marselle

marselle_neSince July 18th, a new downtown condominium project named Marselle has received three offers (two mutually accepted), and their first buyer will be moving in September 1st. The most popular floorplan will more than likely be the 1 bedroom with den which varies between 832 to 854 square feet for as low as approximately $420/square foot.

Overall, the homes are your typical new construction units with slab granite countertops, hardwood floors, and stainless steel appliances. Other than Marselle’s competitive price point, there are some additional unique features we thought deserved some recognition.

The first thing that stood out was how great the rooftop deck was. The sales agent challenged that it’s the only rooftop deck offering a top to bottom view of the Space Needle, but the deck also has four separate common areas for chairs, tables, and BBQ’s. One area in particular had what the agent liked to refer to as a “doggy pad”.

The reason the rooftop deck at Marselle can be referred to as having distinctive areas is because of the 2nd story of 10 penthouse townhomes. Townhomes have their own sliding glass doors offering access to the rooftop deck from the dens, and one in particular is already plumbed for a jacuzzi (which they’ll throw in with a full-price offer).

With the tightened requirements conventional mortgages bring, more people are turning to FHA loans. Qualifications are a little more lenient, and in most cases only require a minimum 3.5% down payment.

Here’s a list of condos and townhomes with FHA approval (as of 10/04/10). They are sorted by area and in order: Downtown, Belltown, Eastlake, Queen Anne, West Queen Anne, Capitol Hill, Ballard and Magnolia.

Bullish About 2010? Matrix Drums Up Half by the 12th Day

January 12, 2010 by  
Filed under Downtown (MLS Area 701), Featured, Selling

We are curious to see how the downtown market is starting off for 2010. Since the beginning of the year, a high number has come up for new listings.  However, almost half of the 57 (-3) units is just Williams and MCM hacking into the MLS to update their new company’s name.

Unfortunately many are still left feeling bad for being responsible while not losing a tremendous amount of net worth in home value.  Buyers are snatching up the flipped floorplan of the same unit next door for sometimes half the price.

Economists are still throwing dust in the wind to predict what the market is going to be like for 2010, but there certainly are not as many running for cover.  The argument today seems to be mostly focused on opinions regarding Escala’s lobby.

At any rate, here’s what’s hitting the market for the beginnng of 2010 and at what price… (*does not include pendings or price adjustments)
