Let’s check in again on the cheapest homes around Seattle proper. Here’s our methodology: I search the listings for the cheapest homes currently on the market, excluding short sales, in the city of Seattle proper. Any properties that are in obvious states of extreme disrepair based on listing photos and descriptions will be excluded. This includes any listing that uses the phrases “fixer,” “rehab loan,” or “value in land.” I post the top (bottom) three, along with some overall stats on the low end of the market.
Please note: These posts should not be construed to be an advertisement or endorsement of any specific home for sale. We are merely taking a brief snapshot of the market at a given time. Also, just because a home makes it onto the “cheapest” list, that does not indicate that it is a good value.
Here are this month’s three cheapest single-family homes in the city limits of Seattle (according to Redfin):
|Address||Price||Beds||Baths||SqFt||Lot Size||Neighborhood||$ / SqFt||Notes|
|7528 16th Ave SW||$99,900||2||1||1,320||6,000 sqft||Delridge||$76||bank owned|
|1010 S Trenton St||$106,000||2||1||820||12,197 sqft||South Park||$129||–|
|4412 S Kenyon||$119,000||2||1||1,640||2,925 sqft||Rainier Valley||$73||bank owned|
Same exact three homes as last month, with a slight price drop on number three.

Here are our monthly “cheapest homes” charts:
Here are cheapest homes in Seattle that actually sold in the last month in arms-length transactions, regardless of condition (since most off-market homes don’t have much info available on their condition).
|Address||Price||Beds||Baths||SqFt||Lot Size||Neighborhood||$ / SqFt||Sold On|
|9445 8th Ave SW||$95,000||3||1.75||1,190||7,320 sqft||Delridge||$80||04/13/2012|
|3508 S Oregon St||$100,000||2||1||1,480||5,510 sqft||Rainier Valley||$68||04/12/2012|
|1201 S Henderson||$100,500||3||1||1,360||6,000 sqft||South Park||$74||04/23/2012|
That first one has surprisingly nice photos for a sub-$100k house.
