Hello Jessica, I have actually been previewing condos in the Fife area these past 2 weeks, if you would like to take a look this week I would be happy to meet up and show you some properties.
Fife is in Pierce County so taxes are lower then Kent, Federal Way, Auburn etc. (King County) That is a huge pro when you are a 1st time homebuyer and trying to keep payments low and affordable.
All areas you are looking in are great; neighborhoods vary no matter where you are. Resale is dependant on alot of factors; just remember owning your own home is great no matter where you are, it's YOURS.
Flooding is always an issue near the rivers in Fife as well as Auburn. With Regards to Mt. Rainer, that is one we can not predict.
Would you like some flood plain info for the area near 20th St. E?
Call or email, I would love to assist you.... more
