This month, Seattle Magazine released their annual edition that covers the best neighborhoods in the greater Seattle area. This year, they featured the “most affordable neighborhoods” near Seattle. It’s no secret that home prices and rents in Seattle have been climbing due to lack of inventory. However, there are neighborhoods that are not located too far from Seattle where home buyers can get more for their money.
Jim Reppond and I chimed in a recent episode of Seattle Real Estate Chat on affordable neighborhoods around the greater Seattle area. During our “chat” I compare buying a home priced at $475,000 using a conventional mortgage to an FHA mortgage. Check it out by watching the video below.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to get preapproved before you start shopping for a home. If I can help you with the mortgage process, please contact me.
