Economist predicts inflation will soon hit real estate market

Ironsides Macroeconomics managing partner Barry Knapp argues global goods prices impact the states of other markets.

Bill Russell, the former Boston Celtics center, just listed his home outside Seattle for $2.6 million.

Russell, who played in the NBA from 1956 to 1969, played a major role in winning 11 NBA championships. He’s a five-time MVP and 12-time All-Star whose style of play made an impact on the game beyond his career.

His home is located in a quiet, lush neighborhood on Mercer Island, a wealthy community on Lake Washington connected to Seattle by a bridge.

The 4,250-square-foot updated Mid-Century Modern home includes four bedrooms, two full baths and two half-baths, according to the listing.

Inside, there’s an open floor plan that’s ideal for entertaining – so is the 10-person hot tub in the primary suite’s spa-like bathroom.

That suite also features a fireplace and a private deck overlooking the evergreen tree-lined landscape. The huge walk-in closet has built-ins. In addition to the 10-person tub, the en suite bathroom has an open multi-head shower and a dual vanity.
