I work in Microsoft( Redmond, WA) and i am looking for a home right now since the mortgage rates went down.

I prefer good school district and has better chances for renting them in this future when i move out
And commute..

Budget: 800 - 900 k

TC : 240k

Thanks in advance.

    You want a 800-900k not
    Old SFH in a good school district without commute ? Not going to happen. You need to increase budget or be ok with commute

    Redmond is reasonable price and very good schools (Educationhill, near Target etc...)

    Redmond and east of there, assuming you don't want to live in the noisy cookie cutter planned city it's great

    I live in Sammamish- you won’t find anything nice for that price

      Starting point is $1M however the school district is 💯 ... my wife is a relator- pm if you are seriously looking- she has some decent stuff right around $1M

      Plus the rental market is ridiculous strong out here

      Oh nice. Thanks for the info. Unfortunately i am already working with a realtor and might not be able to switch now.

      But i will definitely keep in mind. So you are saying that getting tenants is easy in saamamish ?

    • Amazon Dhlf30
      If you are asking these questions on blind then you need a new realtor- generally buyers aren’t locked in with specific brokers.... yes, very easy to get good tenants in Sammamish- it’s very competitive- our neighbor just rented his house out- had 4 applicants in first 24 hours

    If you want a good location, schools, and rent market you may need to increase your budget...

    • Microsoft ohhjgcvjhg
      OP
      OK
      May i please know for which city ?
      Just not increasing the budget since renting will be tough as the budget increases ...

      Renting is easy in desirable areas. Seattle, Bellevue, maybe Kirkland.
      Jun 30
    • Microsoft ohhjgcvjhg
      OP
      OK that's good to know . may be Bellevue is having good potential then

      Since Seattle and Kirkland don't have good schools.

    240k.. you can go upto 1.3-1.5m easily if you have down payment. Is your wife working? If that’s case, you can afford even better
