Maple Valley Real Estate Market
Single-family homes dominate the Maple Valley real estate market, with few townhome and condo developments located here - most townhome or condominium residences for sale are typically listed between $200,000 and $400,000, depending of course on size, location, and finishes. Single family homes on the other hand have wide variety of options that range from traditional two-story homes to quite a few upscale listings in the $600,000 to $1+ million price range.
Maple Valley Community
In 2011, Family Circle magazine placed Maple Valley in its list of top ten cities in the country, while its town square, charming downtown, and scenic natural landscape all combine to make this a one-of-a-kind location for home buyers to consider.
In 2013, Maple Valley's estimated population was just over 24,800, while its total area encompasses approximately 5.9 miles. Several bodies of water lie within the Maple Valley borders, which include Lake Wilderness, Lake Lucerne, Rock Creek, and a portion of Pipe Creek. Cedar River also passes through the northeastern border of the city, and as a result, all of these natural waters make waterfront real estate very sought after all throughout the Maple Valley area. In fact, homes for sale near Lake Wilderness and Lake Wilderness Park are some of the most expensive properties in town, while this part of the city is also one of the most densely populated as well.
