First, small correction. 98199 is Magnolia and 98119 is Queen Anne. The reason you are seeing few sales of townhomes in Magnolia is that most of the sales have been smaller single family homes in the $400,000 to $500,000 price range. Given the choice, people opt to own a 2 bedroom home on a 4,000 to 6,000 square foot lot for better future value protection. Also to have a yard. Townhomes sell better in areas where you can't buy a home in that price range. As to Queen Anne, people opt for view. There are some fabulous views in Queen Anne from large 2 bedroom condos. So people opt for the condo with view vs. the townhome without view in the $400,000 to $500,000 price range.

Part of what is going on in that particular price range is the drying up of funding for people with little to no money down and less than stellar credit scores. The asking prices that are now reducing were based on sale prices from a time when lending practices were a lot looser. So price dropping is not helping since too many cannot buy at any price.

Very vague question. I would consult with a contractor to figure that out. Can range anywhere depending on what fixtures you want in the home.

Agents could create reports by zip code, but the NWMLS doesn't publish them that way, even for agents. They do publish by NWMLS area.

The SPD also publishes crime stats. Perhaps you could overlay the NWMLS areas with the crime stats maps to get your correlations by the larger NWMLS areas?

It sounds like BECU is doing some sort of automated valuation, and not allowing you to substitute that for a real live appraisal. Given that, I don't really think that it matters what the "correct" answer is. For a second position HELOC they're going to want to be conservative.

As to your taxes, they are most likely to have accurate information about your house. If you have comps that can refute the value, you could contest the value during a period which typically occurs once each year after they send you a new valuation. But I don't think you're likely to get there arguing over square footage, but instead showing lower values for similar houses.

Keep in mind that a real valuation might discount your property for being a split entry (assuming that's what you meant by split level). Those would typically be your best comps.

I think prices are only going to go up in that market. inventory is still low and most people are holding onto homes after they move to a new home and keeping the original as an investment. If you have any questions about financing (how to pay for the home) please give me a call or shoot me an email. I love running through scenarios and answering questions.

I've never worked in Kingston, but I looked up what may be available there. Based on only a very cursory look, I'd say it's much more affordable than Edmonds or Lynnwood, but you'd have the added living expenses of daily Ferry trips if you need to work on the west side.
Ideally, where ever you buy starts out reasonable but then appreciates once you have it.
The average days on the market for the past 180 days is 74, but there are several homes sold in 10 days or less.
If the ferry trip isn't an issue, check it out.

Hi Marietta,

If your home is listed for sale, I would reach out to your listing agent who can then correct the information. But if you're just looking to adjust the information on your home off the market, I would reach out to Trulia Customer Support. They can be reached at; 1 (888) 466-3501

Good luck!

I'm sorry I didn't see this question when you asked it. In general, Snoqualmie has been a very good market this year for sellers. We had a listing earlier on that was under contract in 7 days with multiple offers that waived inspection and went well over list price. Others have had similar results.
We are currently in a Fall slowdown, but any home that is properly prepared, marketed and priced will sell quickly. Let me know if I can help.

I do not understand what you want or why you need such detailed information. It would take a lot of research to probably answer once I understood.
