The Eastside is known for its quiet neighborhoods, nationally ranked school districts, gorgeous parks and trail systems, and its proximity to freeways, shopping centers, and outdoor activities. This vibrant urban neighborhood core offers more sprawl and less congestion than the Seattle area. With quick commute times, an ever-expanding transportation system, and its own thriving economy the Eastside has something for everyone.
The Eastside is currently one of the hottest housing markets—with home values steadily increasing, due to growth and increasing demand, to the highest on record since 1993. It recently extended its lead as the most expensive market in King County, posting a median home price of $675,000 in December 2015.
