Which area should I buy a home if I am currently working at MICROSOFT HQ but could change jobs at anytime to Google, FB, Amazon, Zillow, Expedia or Salesforce (all within the greater Seattle area)

    Depending on your budget Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland in that order.

      No Bothell, Issaquah? The ones you mentioned are really expensive areas

      They are expensive. Prices in those areas have gone down compared to two years ago. You can get a nice new home in Bothell or an older home in the north Kirkland Juanita area for the same price. Commute wise Kirkland would be better than Bothell

    All those east bay suburban places are the same as any suburb anywhere in the country. You may as well be living in Fresno.

    Try Ballard, Fremont, Magnolia or Queen Anne instead. Close to all potential employers.

      Yes but you get even less for the same or more money. Depends on your "amenity" priorities

      True. For my money quality of life improvement outweighs square footage. YMMV though.

    True. More like $1.5M for a place you’d truly want to live in.

    Yeah a house in Ballard, Magnolia etc. would be easily 1MM+. Most of the houses are at least 50 years old and may or may not be updated. Again depends on what you value most.
