Seattle Real Estate Market

In general, a homebuyer can find a place to live in Seattle for anywhere from $200,000 to $20 million, so it may be more helpful to discuss typical price ranges for specific types of real estate.

Seattle condos for sale are typically the most affordable entry into the Seattle housing market. Units with one bed and one bath generally begin around $200,000, and two bedrooms typically start to appear around the high $300s, though can sometimes be found more affordably.

Condos with three or more bedrooms are comparatively rare, and while they can be found below $1 million, most are considered luxury condos. At the highest end of the scale, Seattle high-rise condos easily hit the multi-millions, with some listing for upwards of $9 million and boasting utterly fantastic views and amenities.

Townhomes in Seattle usually start in the mid-$400s, with these units typically having one or two bedrooms. The upper end of the townhome market usually tapers off at around $1.5 million, though a few may list for higher.

Looking for luxury? Seattle luxury homes are the cream of the crop. From gorgeous waterfront estates to homes with mountain views—sometimes combined in the same property—luxury real estate in Seattle is second to none.

Be prepared to pay a premium—while the median list price of all homes in Seattle listed at above $1 million is around $1.4 million, meaning that most luxury homes in Seattle will list around the $1 to $2 million mark. The most expensive homes in Seattle can list at a staggering $15 million-plus!

Seattle Community Amenities

It may be easier to list what one can't find in Seattle than what one can! Nevertheless, here's a general overview.

Seattle is the place to be for exploring museums of all kinds. Art museums in Seattle range from the massive Seattle Art Museum and breathtaking Chihuly Garden and Glass gallery to the quirky Original Selfie Museum and Official Bad Art Museum of Art. The interactive Pacific Science Center is exciting for all ages. The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture has more than 16 million artifacts and is both an active research museum and the oldest public museum in Washington. The Museum of Flight is a national attraction. Even niche interests such as pinball are represented in Seattle's arts and culture offerings.

The Seattle Center alone can take days to fully take in. Notable attractions include the International Fountain, the Center Theatre, the Climate Pledge Arena for sports and concerts, the Museum of Pop Culture, and much more.

Seattle residents have access to the Puget Sound, Lake Washington, Lake Union, and Green Lake all within city limits, a perfect recipe for water recreation of all kinds. Green Lake is notable for being stocked with more than 30,000 rainbow trout per year and is right next to Woodland Park Zoo. The Seattle waterfront offers charters, cruises, ferries, sailing, kayaking, boat shows, and even floatplanes.

The dining opportunities in Seattle are vast and varied, including cuisine of all types, a plethora of hole-in-the-wall restaurants locals swear by, every kind of coffee you care to name, and bakeries and desserts to make your mouth water.

Seattle has an amazing number of walkable neighborhoods, and biking is a lifestyle here. The city consistently ranks highly among America's most biking-friendly cities, with a robust biking infrastructure, bike-friendly buses and light rail, and a bike-share program featuring e-bikes among its public transit options.

Seattle Economy

Seattle has a projected future job growth of around 10 percentage points above the national average, so it's safe to say that the Seattle economy is thriving. Some of America's economic giants are headquartered in the Seattle metro area, such as Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft, Costco, and more. The tech industry is particularly prominent here.

The cost of living in Seattle is fairly high, as can be expected with large cities in highly desirable locations. However, while some costs, such as home prices, are higher than average, others, such as health care and utilities, are lower.

Seattle Local Highlights

  • Seattle earned the nickname "Emerald City" for its lush forests and outdoor spaces. Other nicknames include Coffee Capital, Rain City, and Jet City, which comes from Boeing's local attractions.
  • Seattle has a prominent coffee culture, and there are whole "coffee crawl" tours to experience the best local places to have a cup of fresh-brewed bliss. Seattle's iconic Space Needle is 605 feet tall and is possibly the most dramatic place to eat in the city, with a rotating cocktail lounge with a glass floor 500 feet in the sky.
  • The Seattle Great Wheel is not only a great climate-controlled Ferris wheel to ride, it lights up in brilliant LED shows on Fridays through Sundays and for special events.
