The Price to Live in the Other Washington Revealed

by Mark Wellborn

Last week, we asked readers to guess the price of an 1,800 square-foot loft space near Seattle’s downtown waterfront. Here is a brief description of the unit for those who missed the post:

“The loft is part of a building that was converted from an early 20th century factory shortly before 2000. While it only has one bedroom, the loft is made for someone that works from home as there is a custom built office space. The home also has arched windows with views of Seattle’s Elliott Bay.”

Take a look:

So how much would you have to plunk down for this property? The price: $725,000. Here is the listing.

Excluding the Price is Right guess of one dollar, the guesses ranged from a low of $599,900 to a high of $1.2 million. Congratulations to winners Brian and Stefanie for hitting the price right on the nose.

    Please stop giving clues in the original posts, such as "while it's not over a million . . ." or "we warn you, anything under $2 million is silly." Part of the fun of guessing is being totally off. You make this feature (which, I should note, I really like and hope you continue) less fun by giving hints.

    Man i wish DC had places like this. DC architecture is great, but lofts just don't exist.

    Listed at $725,000 for 4 months without being sold, so it SHOULD be listed for $699,900. I win! Yippee! haha
