Mercer Island Waterfront Sales

“Mercer Island Waterfront Sales Tripling in 2010” is the headline of the blog called Seattle Waterfront Homes by Sam DeBord. He reported the island’s waterfront sales are on pace to triple the number sold in 2009. The Lytle mansion (see my 9/27/10 post below) sale for $12 million was the island’s most expensive  2010 sale. A $4 million sale on the south end of the island was recorded in November and will be the subject of a subsequent post. Mercer Island had 29 waterfront property sales recorded through November 2010 and had only 9 for the same period in 2009.

DeBord reported in his previous postings sales on the Eastside and Seattle waterfronts are also up substantially from 2009. I recommend DeBord's blog for anyone interested in the area’s waterfront sales activity.
