Buy townhome in Seattle.

Jan 10

I'm moving to Washington. I'm planning to buy a townhouse in a decent neighborhood. Based on my current salary and requirements. Can someone recommend housing locations that can match my requirement.

base salary 146000 (not including RSUs here as I don't want to sell them)

Townhome in the range of 300k-400k

Work location: Bellevue

commute time: ~ 30 mins

Single income, married, no kids

Wife planning to do masters this year

Balance in my savings account $23000

Am I looking in the right range based on my salary ? If so, what would be some decent neighborhoods to find a townhouse within that range ?

Recommendations will be greatly appreciated 😊

    You should wait and rent. You don’t have enough savings.

    You can maybe find a condo for that price range, but for a townhouse you’re looking at 800k+

      Even if I go bit far from Bellevue with commute time of 45 mins

      For a decent 400k home you probably would need to look in a place like Everett which is like 40 minutes away without traffic.

    Look at shitholes like Bothell or Mill Creek.

      Did you buy a house in Bothell and just figured out that you own a non resellable asset?

    Are there even townhomes in that price range in Bellevue?

      30 min is how long it'll take to cross bellevue lol

    Error, does not exist. Even if it did you'd need 80k min down.

    You don’t have enough savings. Also 400k will get you maybe an older apartment in the Bellevue neighborhood, likely not even that. Would be good to rent and build capital, home ownership has hidden costs

    You should wait for sure. Not enough saved. Prices will normalize a bit more this year. Condo prices will be first to fall.

    Don't do it. I compromised on location to buy a townhome and think I made the wrong choice. I'm debating renting it out.

      All the townhomes I’m looking to buy are around 1M 15 minutes commute to Seattle downtown

    There are many townhomes within that range, depends on how many rooms you need. You might be able to get a good 3 bedroom townhome for that range in bothell

    The location matters most.
