Moving Into Seattle’s Broadmoor Neighborhood Has Potentially Become More Expensive For New Residents

Broadmoor’s primary source for funding capital improvement projects and general neighborhood maintenance has been the move-in fee for new Broadmoor homeowners. The move-in fee up until recently was $5,400.00 for all move-ins, this is no longer the case as a new variable collection system has been implemented. As of now, the move in fee for all home sales up to $1,500,000.00 is $5,400.00. The move-in fee for sales in excess of $1,500,000.00 will be based on a percentage of the sales price, the percentage rate will be 0.36%. Currently there are 3 homes available for sale in the neighborhood, if each of the 3 homes sold at asking price, the move-in fees collected would be $7,902.00 (Sales Price $2,195,000.00), $15,822.00 (Sales price $4,395,000.00), and $23,2200.00 (Sales Price $6,450,000). The rate of 0.36% will be in place until June 30th, 2016. On June 30th, 2016 the rate will reset, the new rate will be based on a change in the Consumer Price Index.

Year to date there have only been 3 closed sales in the neighborhood with 3 homes currently Pending.  Given the low volume of sales, it’s understandable that the Board of the Broadmoor Home Owner Association would want to make changes to ensure that the neighborhood’s reserves are at healthy level, as they are vital to fund current expenditures, expenditures which make Broadmoor one of the premier neighborhoods in the city.            

Broadmoor – Seattle – Rollover Accident

photo - Broadmoor Rollover

Monday morning around 12:00 AM some residents of the Broadmoor neighborhood were awakened by the sound of an automobile striking two parked cars. It was reported that the individual operating the automobile was driving in excess of 50 miles per hour, the speed limit in the neighborhood is 20 mph. Upon colliding with the first parked car the automobile went airborne, striking another parked vehicle on the opposite side of the street before coming to a stop, upside down.

According to police officers responding to the accident, the suspect appeared to be intoxicated and under the influence of narcotics. The suspect was transported to Harborview Medical Center, he suffered no serious injuries.

Broadmoor is a gated community, with security guards stationed at both points of entry. The suspect is a non resident of the community, and how he came to find himself racing around the streets of Broadmoor is under investigation. Residents believe the individual was visiting a neighborhood home owner, which conflicts with the suspects story, whom some believe concocted a story to protect the resident.

 

With Most New listing Selling Fast In Seattle’s Broadmoor Nieghborhood Inventory Is Scarce!

I’m sure that most Broadmoor residents are aware of the fact that sales in the neighborhood in 2012 were just dismal. There were 10 sales recorded by the NWMLS. With an Average Days on Market of 193 days. Only 1 of the 10 homes sold for over $2,000,000. The average sales price for 2012 was $1,527,500. The average price per Sq. Ft. was $365.93.

Fast forward to the present, July 3, 2013, things have drastically improved. At the present time there have been 14 recorded sales by the NWMLS in the neighborhood, with 1 home sale currently Pending. Six homes have sold for over $2,000,000, with 4 of these 6 sales being well over $2,000,000. The Average Days on Market stands at 138 days. This number is a little deceptive though as 8 of the homes sold this year sold in less than 20 days, and the home which is currently pending will fall into this category as well. The average sales price to date is $2,168,750. The average price per sq. ft. is currently $413,10.

A quick look at the current inventory shows that there are only 5 homes for sale, all of which are listed for over $2,500,000. This piece of data suggests that it would be a very opportune time for sellers in the neighborhood with homes believed to be valued at less than $2,500,000 to sell their home, there’s NO completion out there.
