Buying a house in Seattle has rapidly turned into, buying a house in King County. Many people who relocate and/or currently live in the region have found it increasing difficult to purchase a home in Seattle proper. Pricing has increased exponentially year over year, from 2016 to 2017 the average Single Family Home in Seattle increased from a median price of $774,997 as of December 2016 to $870,000 as of December 2017, an 11%.
What does this mean for you if that median price is beyond your reach? That you most certainly can be a homeowner but considering the cities/towns that border Seattle is key. The suburbs of Seattle have grown into thriving, urban cities and warrant a deeper look. The cities of Renton, Burien, Des Moines, Kent and Federal Way for example, are great alternatives and with the growing regional transportation, working in the region provides much more flexibility.
