I bought house in Ballard a little over a year ago. My Real Estate Agent (George Lamson from John L Scott) showed me all over Seattle until I found the perfect place. I wasn't even considering Ballard, but he had found a place that was in my price range and that was brand new. I loved it. It was a perfect place and I was happy to learn that the properties in Ballard are quickly going up in price. I purchased by my place for $375K and now it's worth $450K. I'm happy. Thank you George!
