Welcome Home to Seattle, Washington!
Seattle, Washington, the jewel of the Pacific Northwest, is known as “The Emerald City.” Famous for computers, coffee, and the beauty of the Cascade Mountains, the Seattle area is home to several of the world’s most well-known technology and lifestyle-oriented companies. Well known brands such as Amazon.com, Starbucks, Microsoft, Costco, Eddie Bauer, and Nordstrom call the Seattle metro area home. Employment is one of the primary reasons that Seattle and surrounding suburban communities regularly appear on “best lists” for best places to live, work and play.
Relocating to Seattle?
We truly enjoy working with clients who are moving to Seattle from other areas. Because our REALTORS® focus in specific real estate markets, they are able to point out all the special places and features of each community, in addition to helping home buyers determine what parts of the metro area will work best for them - whether it be due to commute times to work, downtown or SeaTac Airport, lifestyle, recreational opportunities, etc. So... if you’re moving from out of state, and looking to buy a home in Seattle - we welcome you. And, if you’re currently living in Seattle and searching for a new home... we’re glad you’re staying here!
Living in Seattle
Living in Seattle gives residents an abundance of recreational opportunities - both indoor and outdoor, when compared to other cities. Beyond the world-class shopping, local hot-spots, and famous sights in the cities, the Seattle area is also surrounded on all sides by stunning natural beauty, including the Puget Sound and islands, the Cascade Mountains, including Mount Rainier National Park, Mount St. Helens, the Olympic Peninsula, and the ski areas at both Steven’s and Snoqualmie Passes. Of course, there are endless hiking options in the state parks and national forests. Folks who enjoy life on the water have plenty to do with motor-boating and sailing on Lake Washington, Lake Sammamish and the waters of the Puget Sound.
Seattle Area Communities
The Seattle metropolitan area covers a lot of “real estate” - so to speak. The city itself is home to approximately 620,000 residents, which represents a large share of the area’s population. However, the population of the entire metropolitan area is over 4 million people. As with most large cities, the area has a rather diverse real estate landscape. From mountain hide-a-ways, to luxury hi-rise condominiums and everything in between, Seattle has affordable options for all home buyers.
City of Seattle
The City of Seattle has over 100 distinct neighborhoods - though some have been absorbed by larger neighborhoods over the years. In “Downtown,” most listings will consist of condos, including waterfront condos and luxury hi-rise condominiums - prices range from the low 400’s and quickly rise into the millions for condos with views and larger luxury condos.
As for the rest of the city, any home search will show that Seattle has a wide variety of architectural styles, from historic Victorian or Tudor-styled homes and Craftsman bungalows, to larger Colonial, Cape Cod, Mid-Century Modern homes and new Urban Contemporary. Each style of single-family homes can vary greatly in size, from as small as 800 square feet, to 10,000 square feet and beyond. In short, Seattle home buyers will typically find a wide variety of styles, locations, amenities and price ranges to choose from.
The Eastside of the Seattle metro area is a very popular choice for home buyers in all price ranges. Bellevue arguably has the highest demand for real estate among all Eastside communities, followed by Kirkland and Redmond. These cities are sought after by home buyers, and enjoyed by current residents, due to the highly rated schools and proximity to major employers, such as Microsoft. Other Eastside communities include Issaquah & Sammamish just to the east of Bellevue, and Snoqualmie & North Bend, both located in the picturesque Snoqualmie Valley, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
The entire Eastside is known as a hub for the computer software industry and supporting technology services. For these reasons, home prices on Seattle’s Eastside are generally higher than other areas - single-family home prices typically begin in the mid-400’s, with most homes selling between $525,000 to $650,000. Of course, luxury estate and waterfront homes are plentiful on both Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. Updated waterfront homes with direct lake frontage are typically well into the millions.
