Construction Boom: Seattle Still Has the Most Construction Tower Cranes in the Country

For the second year in a row, the city of Seattle has more cranes than any other city in the U.S., as the Emerald City construction boom shows no signs of slowing down. As a recent Seattle Times article outlines, many cities around the country are seeing a decline in cranes, dropping an average “8 percent over the past six months,” yet the number seen in Seattle as of early July is at 58, which is “60 percent more than any other U.S. city” and unchanged when compared to cranes in Seattle this time last year. Seattle’s count gives it a staggering 22-crane lead over Los Angeles, the second place city, though other North American cities such as Toronto are soaring high above Seattle, currently at 81 cranes.

2017 Real Estate Market: What Millennials Need To Know

A new report by Cicely Wedgeworth for realtor.com has shown that the 2017 housing market is going to be shaken up by an influx of prospective first-time millennial home buyers. Here is what you need to know:

The Great Real Estate Revolution Of 2017

According to a recent survey by realtor.com, in 2016, only 33% of people planning on purchasing a home were first-time buyers. This upcoming year, however, is slated to see a dramatic increase in this demographic, which is expected to jump to 52%, of which, a staggering 61% of perspective buyers are under the age of 35. This means that the 2017 real estate market will subsequently see an increase in competition for housing amongst first time home buyers.

Competition Will Be Intense

With this influx of first time millennial home buyers, the competition for housing within the real estate market will be more substantial than 2016. Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for realtor.com, recommends trying to “’avoid bidding wars and higher prices spurred by a potential increase in millennial buyers’” by considering a winter home purchase. When examining the 2017 real estate market, it is also important to investigate which types of properties will be the most sought after. Continue Reading

US News Ranks Seattle the 7th Best Place to Live in the United States

Last month, US News released their annual ranking of top U.S. cities to live in, and according to their calculations, Seattle ranks 7th in a comparison of 100 of the nation’s top cities. The list is based on a methodology incorporating the job market index (20%), value index (25%), quality of life index (30%), desirability index (15%) and net migration (10%). What elevated Seattle to the top? As Naomi Tomky describes, “for many, living in Seattle has as much to do with what’s outside the city as what’s inside. Less than an hour from downtown, residents escape for the day or weekend to wineries, ski resorts, hiking trails and sprawling parks. Seattleites bring that love of nature into the city as much as possible, enjoying Seattle’s parks and tree-lined streets” in addition to what Tomky says is an inherently calm and patient attitude.

To celebrate Seattle’s feature and highlight the diverse lifestyle options found in the city, we explore a few of our favorite current listings below:
