Denny Blaine Real Estate: February Report

Seattle’s Denny Blaine real estate market was quiet in February. MLS data shows only one sale during the last winter month of 2016 as well as 2015. The two previous years were more active with four (2014), and four (2013) total February sales. Seattle’s low inventory and high prices seem to have buyers taking their time shopping these days.

Still Time to see Seattle Christmas Ships

Argosy CruisesIf you missed the Christmas Ships down at Madrona Beach recently, there is still time to go see them not too far from Denny Blaine.  The Seattle Christmas Ships will be in Madison Park this weekend, Saturday, December 17th, from 4:55- 5:15 pm.  Merry Christmas.

Christmas Ships in the Denny Blaine Area

Seattle Christmas ShipsThe Seattle Christmas Ships will be viewable in the Denny Blaine area several times over the next couple weeks.  The next chance to see the Christmas Ships will be Saturday night down the hill from Denny Blaine at Madrona Park.  The ships will actually be the grand finale of the Very Merry in Madrona this Friday and Saturday.  The Christmas Ships, a Seattle tradition for 62 years, will stop in front of Madrona Beach between 9:25 and 9:45 PM on Saturday night (December 3rd).  Come and enjoy brightly decorated ships and the holiday songs by the Dickens Carolers while standing by a warm bonfire on Madrona Beach on the south side of the Spectrum Theatre.

Flashlights and warm clothes are recommended.  The Seattle forecast looks to be clear but cold.

If you have little ones at home, the Madrona Christmas Ship schedule may be late for your family.  You may want to consider going to Mount Baker neighborhood on Sunday night where they will have three shows: Ferdinand Street Park (the boats will be in the bay between Seward Park and Lake Washington Boulevard) from 5:40 to 6:00 PM; Stan Sayres Memorial Park (aka The Pitts) from 6:15 to 6:35 PM; and Mt. Baker Beach Park from 6:45 to 7:05 PM.  Monday the Christmas Ships will be at Seward Park starting at 8:25 PM or you can wait until Saturday, December 17th when the Christmas Ships will be at Madison Park Beach from 4:55 to 5:15 PM.  You can also check the full schedule of stops to find a date and place that is convenient to you.

Metro Bus Service to Denny Blaine May Change

Metro BusMetro is considering changing a bunch of bus routes including the #2 which services Denny Blaine.  The suggested change is to have the #2 still travel to Denny Blaine, but it would only go to Downtown Seattle and back.  No longer would the service head to Queen Anne or Belltown before heading back to Denny Blaine.  The main problem I see is the #2 used to access all of Downtown Seattle; the proposed bus line would only go as far north as Madison before heading back to Denny Blaine, giving little access to the rest of Downtown.

If you are concerned, you should take the Metro survey.  The changes are planned for September 2012, but the wheels (on the bus) are already turning so you better speak now.
