Trendlines Prove a Strong Market in Seattle & Beyond

Trendlines Prove a Strong Market in Seattle & Beyond

Last week, S&P Case-Shiller released the latest Home Price Index and shortly after, the Seattle Times proclaimed the rapid decline of residential home prices in the Seattle metropolitan region. Contrary to headlines, however, the trendlines paint a much more nuanced picture. To be sure, Seattle was still named among the top three fastest growing regions on the Index, reporting an 8.4 percent year-over-year gain in home prices.

One of the special things about living on Bainbridge Island is that there are many excellent public school choices as well as alternatives to traditional education and outstanding private schools right here in the community.  There truly is something for every child. 

Winslow Core Neighborhood

Winslow Core Neighborhood

The ‘Winslow Core’ neighborhood is a short stroll and a 35 minute ferry ride to downtown Seattle, so it is the most pedestrian friendly area on Bainbridge.  It is also home to the largest concentration of Islanders.  Living in Winslow means easy commuting during the week, leisurely walks to the bakery on the weekend, and quick trips to the library or market.

Sunrise Drive Neighborhood

Sunrise Drive Neighborhood

The Sunrise Drive area is the beautiful northeastern most part of Bainbridge Island, just north of Rolling Bay and east of Madison Ave. This gorgeous waterfront neighborhood is highly sought after because of the stunning sunrises (hence the name) and lively views of the Puget Sound shipping lanes, Cascade Mountains, downtown Seattle and Mt. Rainier. Close proximity to the Agate Pass bridge and easy access to the ferry are an added bonus.

Explore the Magnificent Wing Point on Bainbridge Island

As you arrive on Bainbridge Island, you will notice the beautiful shoreline that juts out to the east called Wing Point.  It’s a lovely centrally located neighborhood with gorgeous views of Puget Sound and the skyline of Seattle. The original settlers on the point would watch the great numbers of bald-headed eagles that would nest in Eagle Harbor, inspiring the name Wing Point.
