This week was a Tuesday tour week. I’ve been running from appointment to appointment ever since and this is the first chance I’ve gotten to write it up.
The weather on Tuesday was pretty nice, so I caught the train downtown and took a look at condos. I had five I wanted to see, the last on in Belltown, but I cut the Belltown condo from my plans because I was getting tight on time. The downtown condos were all clustered fairly near Pike Place Market, so walking between them was quite easy – I probably would have opted to walk even if I’d had a car with me just because parking downtown is such a hassle. My favorite part of looking at condos downtown: the views were fantastic. Mount Rainier wasn’t out – it was hazy enough in the distance to hide a shy mountain – but the sun on the water was great. Days like that, I spend a little time wishing I worked out of an office downtown instead of in Capitol Hill.
This tour was definitely a clear victory over using a car, though. The train to Westlake was easy, and not having to find parking and debate whether I should move the car from one showing to the next was a huge improvement. So far, the tours in the denser parts of the city have been strong arguments in the no-car column.
