Seattle neighborhoods are far from cookie-cutter. Each one has its own personality, people, pros, and cons. If you’re relocating within the city (or moving to Seattle for the first time), make sure you land yourself in area that fits your needs and desires. Buying a house is one the biggest investment you’ll ever make—and buying a house in a neighborhood you dislike is one of the biggest mistakes you can ever make.
How do you make sure you’re buying the right neighborhood? We have a few resources.
- Our website. We profiled every major neighborhood in the city, complete with demographic info, photos, and information about schools, nightlife, restaurants, farmers’ markets—you name it.
- Use the Seattle Times’ neighborhood quiz. It looks simplistic at first, but there’s a surprisingly large amount of useful information once you get past the 8-question quiz.
- Talk to us! We’re always happy to help. We strongly believe that everyone deserves a home they love, and making that happen is the best part of our job!
