Foreclosure in The Highlands – But Sales Are Improving

The Highlands SeattleA week ago Sunday, the Seattle Times wrote and article about a foreclosure in The Highlands.  The article titled, The Highlands Can’t Keep Out Foreclosures, is buried at the bottom of the first article about the proxy fight at Fisher.  Maybe, I should have left the article buried there?  The article is not all bad though.  It does draw attention to the foreclosure of the one home, but it also talks about all The Highlands has to offer.  It also points out that while things are not perfect (ex. the foreclosure), that sales have been improving since 2009.  The article quotes Jane Powers, real estate broker from Ewing & Clark:

They [The Highlands] didn’t have much luck in 2009, the broker [Jane Powers] reports — not a single home sold. But since January 2010, she says, 11 houses have closed or are under contract. “I think they’re out of the worst of it,” Powers says.
