  • Capitol Hill 1st quarter 2010 real estate sales

    Posted on May 29th, 2010 admin No comments

    Median price of $187,000.

    This is another neighborhood that just has too few sales in the last year to get a firm hold on a trend.  It is however a bellwether location to watch.  My neighborhood boundaries tend to the conservative side using 300 West as a western edge.  Lots of potential for walkable commercial area when the economy improves.  The new neighborhood bar (Jam), restaurant Em’s and the Marmalade Cafe helps give it a vibrant feel.

    A classic example of why we shouldn’t make assumptions from raw statistics.  This graph makes it look like home values in Capitol Hill swung wildly from year to year.  I assure you, that was not so.  What we want to look at here is the interpolation between the data points for the long term trend.  And that trend wasn’t too bad.
