About the Neighborhood

Southeast Seattle

Mt. Baker and Seward Park offer a respite where a day at the park leads to an evening at a boutique restaurant or watching the stars come out above the lake. Among Seattle’s sub-regions, Southeast Seattle in the first half of 2017 saw the third-largest year-over-year increase in the number of home sales (17.6 percent higher to 420), and the fastest-rising median price (21.8 percent higher to $578,500). The area was also runner-up to Mercer Island in respect of the year-over-year increase in selling volume (up 36.1 percent to $267.25 million). This area also continues to gentrify, with the price per square foot rising by 19 percent since last year.

I would add that the neighborhoods of Columbia City, Hillman City and Brighton are seeing renovation and new developments in the original urban village commercial areas with upscale retail sites, such as PCC Markets, Molly Moon opening alongside iconic neighborhood shops and ethnic restaurants. The nearby light rail stops along MLK is a big advantage to young professionals seeking the appeal of a lively community and relative housing affordability.
