Kurt Cobain Home Chops Price; Viaduct Park Going to Ballot

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest real estate news from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.

PUBLIC SPACES -- Seattle has a lot of big plans for the waterfront area but an elevated park that includes a chunk of the Alaskan Way Viaduct isn't part of them. They could be, however, if Seattle voters say yes to I-123 next August on the ballot. If approved, the plan calls for a small portion of the viaduct to be the start of an elevated walkway that leads all the way to CenturyLink Field.

PRICECHOPPER -- A lot of people are still interested in the life and music of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain but not that many of them seem all that interested in buying the Aberdeen house he grew up in. Originally-listed for $500K and then re-listed for $400K in March, they've just chopped the price again to $329K. The broker babble mentions the possibility of moving the house altogether into a "larger institution or private collection" if you so desire.

LEAST EXPENSIVE -- When it comes to Seattle neighborhoods that always seem to end up on best-of lists, Ravenna often seems to be one of them. Curbed mapped out the ten least expensive properties currently for sale in this North Seattle 'hood. Residences run the gamut, starting in the $300K range and ending up with two asking over a million dollars.
