I looked at home sales in the following 4 sections of Ballard (see map below):
- Between 8th and 15th Ave NW (includes Whittier Heights area).
- Between 15th and 24th Ave NW and NW 85th Street.
- Between 24th and 32nd Ave NW (includes Loyal Heights homes).
- West of 32nd Ave NW (Sunset Hill area).
All section were bordered by NW 85th Street to the north and NW Market Street to the south. The 4 sections were chosen based on the main north-south arterial roads through the Ballard neighborhood Seattle.
I looked at the sale of all Ballard single family homes (houses and townhomes). The data does not include condos. I looked at homes that sold over the 6 month period from July through December 2017. All data were extracted from the NWMLS.
