Thursday Memo: High-priced houses … Super Bowl rematch – sorta … M’s in playoff hunt?

Home sweet home: With a high of $543,500, Seattle median single-family home prices have passed the August 2007 high set before the housing bubble burst. It’s too early to say whether Seattle can maintain that level, but Sellers are excited. Buyers? Not so much. Low inventory means bidding wars have become the norm.

Bronco re-bash? It’s only a pre-season game, but the Seahawks face their Super Bowl foes at 6 p.m. tonight in Denver. Coach Pete Carroll said he expects the matchup will mean “a fired-up team and a difficult situation to play in.’’ But the pre-season goal remains the same:  Get a good look at the younger players and the ones fighting for roster spots.

Speaking of good Seattle sports teams: The American League’s final playoff spot is wide open and the Mariners are in the middle of the fight. Read Larry Stone’s column.

Summer break: With highs in the mid-70s, we get a break today from summertime heat, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Expect the thermometer to nudge back into the 80s by this weekend.

Get out your meat dress: It’s a big week in music coming up – everything from Lady Gaga to Lyndyrd Skynyrd. Bonus points if you find an appropriate outfit to wear to both of those concerts.
