Looking for some good suggestions.
I am looking to buy a house. But not able to figure out which one should i choose, big home in bothell or modern townhouse in sammamish area. Sammamish townhouse is more expensive than the bigger community house in bothell.
- Boeing tkoaokEither way, you'll spend a lot of time in the car. I love living in Seattle, where I can walk to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, on and on. And my street is quiet. I can't imagine living in the burbs again.
- SAP cwWg17I grew up in Bothell and live in Sammamish now. Overall I'd go for Bothell based on your comments as I think a town house takes away a lot of benefits of living in the burbs and people don't seem to stay in the townhomes long before they look for a house with yard. Both have great schools, but the commute is better from Sammamish. I'd say Bothell is likely to grow faster so perhaps more upside potential. Similar shopping offering. For me the killer with Bothell is the lack of a decent freeway access (Bothell Everett Highway sucks) so I might look at other communities along the i90 (eg Snoqualmie) ... But given your criteria and two options I'd likely go with Bothell.
