People are packing up and buying homes outside of Seattle, according to Sotheby’s first-quarter report for 2021.
According to Sotheby’s, it’s a seller’s market, and people are buying homes in rural communities like Carnation, Sultan, Snohomish, Gold Bar and Darrington.
Carnation saw a nearly 15% increase in median sales prices for homes with an average of six days on the market.
Snohomish saw an increase of over 10% in sale prices, with an average of seven days on the market, and that trend continues.
While housing prices are rising in smaller cities, you still get more bang for your buck than buying in Seattle.
