Yes, it’s as insane as ever. It really depends on the neighborhood and your price range but honestly, even the trashy neighborhoods are still going up

You might be able to find something for under $1M, but it will not be easy.

I think you’re going to want to come in with at least 1.1M. We just had an unsolicited offer for $999K from an agent last week in our house by the zoo, and it’s 1795 sq ft on a 5000 sq ft lot. And it’s just meh.

I’m from the Seattle area with two school aged kids and I would recommend finding a school district you like that you want to raise the kids in (unless you want to go private). I also just wanted to point out that people here generally can’t drive. Flat out terrible. So factor in a ton of traffic, especially going north into the city. You got tolls coming into the city from the east on what feels like every major road now. You also have tolls coming in from north to south as well.

Thanks
