Single family home in the Greater Seattle area - Help Needed
We're looking to buy a SFH soon, my husband and I both work in downtown. I need some help is zeroing in on the area. Below are the ones we're considering :
Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Sammamish, Bothell.
After the cost (650-850k), easy commute and school district are most important to us. It looks like during the peak traffic times, the commute is quite comparable between all these areas (45-55 minutes).
So it all depends on the school district. How is the school district in Bothell compared to the other places mentioned above?
There are some new construction homes coming up in Bothell, so in terms of house size and quality, we will get a better bang for our buck in Bothell. Is it worth it to get a more expensive home in Bellevue/Sammamish /Issaquah/Kirkland just for the school district?
Are there any other factors I need to consider, like the resale value for example?
