Sometime in 2007, four families bought these once-new homes. A short dead-end street, tucked away from the main drags through Kirkland and Redmond, where they thought they’d get some peace and quiet.

[dramatic music]

10 years later, the run-down rambler with an inexplicable amount of acres gets mowed down, and you get to listen to 50 homes being built 6 feet away, year round, for what I suspect will be 18 months overall.

[Sad trombone]

Two of the homes on this street are now up for sale.

But don’t feel pity... these people are making a killing for no good reason, after buying them at rock-bottom prices a decade ago.


Moral of the story? Fuck this market.
