Looking at working at Google kirkland. Where do you all live? I'm married and have a couple dogs, so will probably have to buy a house with a bit of a yard.

    This might be a shocker, but they probably live in Kirkland.

      Kirkland houses are a little old.

      Compared to Seattle houses they're new.

      Joke aside, Bothell is a pretty good and affordable place

    There was a rumor that Google Kirkland will be relocated to Downtown Bellevue pretty soon.

      Does it change anything from house hunting point of view?
      Nov 27
    • Microsoft do_needful
      Yes. You must be fucking stupid to buy a house in Bothell to travel to Bellevue from there every morning.

      That’s impossible, because Google has a huge office in Kirkland they’ve recently expanded 2x and built a beautiful community park around.
      Google could only lease some offices in Bellevue or Kirkland downtown in order to expand further, because the land in Kirkland has become golden already.

      They were actually planning to take over offices really close to the campus, in kirkland downtown

      They leased a new building in dt Bellevue for expansion. Kirkland campus is staying intact though. There are plans to expand it in the near future as well.

    98033 is the best and still relatively affordable place you can buy real estate in Seattle area.
    Look somewhere south of Totem lake, between Google and Oculus.

      I love 98033. If that’s considered affordable, what zip code in Kirkland do you consider not affordable?

      Waterfront isn’t affordable of course, but if you set notifications and filter by SFH no HOA, 3+ bd, over 1500 sqft with a garage and around 1M, you can still find some good deals eg in Rose Hill or close. At least, they appear time to time.

      Yea I live in Houghton and it's really good and accessible to all 4 downtowns (Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue and Redmond).

    Houghton (south Kirkland, north Bellevue, zip 98033)
    Very clean and residential area, no homeless, great beach, walking distance to Google, 7 minutes to Microsoft and 5 minutes to downtown Bellevue (in case you change jobs).
    There are many new houses being built or just got built in Houghton. Opposite to hour house, they just built a new one sold for $3.5M.

    How are school in Kirkland and bothell? No one seems to enlist this criteria . Has recent down turn giving some discounts in these area?

      Most of Kirkland is part of Lake Washington School District, which is excellent. Bothell would be Northshore I think, which I also heard is good but not as good as LWSD.
