We’ve found the perfect way for you to kick off summer this year. On June 11 and 12, Windermere is sponsoring the second annual Washington Waterfront Home Tour. More than 95 homes throughout Washington are available for visitors to tour by boat, bike, or car. Properties are priced from $189,000 to $10.4 million. While the homes on the tour are on the water or have views of the water, they’re not all uber expensive; there are properties that fit a wide variety of needs, styles, and budgets.
If you’re wondering about the investment potential of a waterfront home, you should note that sales for these properties have been booming. In the Puget Sound region, the average sales price is up over 10 percent compared to a year ago, and over the past three years, prices have increased by more than 20 percent*. With the amount of water we have throughout the area, it’s no surprise that waterfront homes are a popular choice, but our strong local economy is doing its part to drive up sales activity and prices.
A map of the homes and their open house hours can be found here; most will be held open from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. on June 11 and 12. The listing details will note the availability; for those listed as “by appointment only,” contact the agent for a private tour.
For more information, go to the Washington Waterfront Home Tour website.
