We have a four-bedroom home off Maplewood behind Emerald Hills; we want to downsize but a six bedroom sounds interesting.

When I'm looking for houses only I don't want to sift through 50% of the results being obvious multi-family units!

Price per square foot is a shorthand, but it has it's limitations. In looking over the rented properties in Redmond they vary greatly, from .78 cents to 1.95. Specific location, size, quality, view, amenities, parking are just a few issues that come into play.
If you are renting your place out, a Broker can review your specifics and give you some of the best local comparables to work with.

that's funny Linda!


amazing how some don't pay attention to the date a question was posted....and, on top of it, this post was pure spam as promoting our listings is not allowed - even back in 2008! ... more

Edmonds is definitely within commuting time of Seattle. We have the sounder, a station in Edmonds to downtown, or Aurora Transit is close for the bus, or if driving, there are several routes to take depending on where you are going to. Typical commute to Northgate is 12- minutes, downtown Seattle 20-25 minutes of course depending on traffic and time. I live in Edmonds and help a lot of people who want better prices for housing, you get so much more house, yard and even parking. Plus Edmonds is Snohomish County, just over the King County line, so taxes are less as well. Edmonds has many wonderful shops, restaurants and it's a real "neighborhood". Voted the "Friendliest Town on Puget Sound".

If you would like a tour to get to know the area, I'd be happy to show you around and give you ideas of the different neighborhoods and all that Edmonds has to offer.

Usually these types of questions are difficult to answer, because we don't know what the future holds. But here we do know what happened in 2008 and 2009.

Stated differently, I think there's little reason to still be answering this question in 2014. ... more

Hi Carol, I'm sure you know that Edmonds, especially Edmonds Bowl has always been a great area. No one knows for sure what the future might bring, I certainly wish I had that crystal ball, but we don't. I do not think that you need to worry about falling home values in our area, we are very fortunate here. If you listen to the national news it's different, but locally our beautiful Pacific Northwest has a lot to offer. We are and have been in a good position.

Have you already purchased in Florida? Do you need to sell first then purchase? What do you see the market like in Florida where you want to move? I am also a Relocation Specialist, so I can help connect you with a knowledgeable agent in Florida that can give you the information that you need on the buying side.

I know, live and love Edmonds! I am a Edmonds resident as well as a local Edmonds Realtor. If you would like to chat in more detail, please feel free to give me a call or email. Making this type of move requires more than just a short answer, there is much to consider.

I'm here for you when you need.

I've lived in Edmonds since 1967. I would agree that Maplewood is transitional. There are some great homes on good streets but there are also some that are less compelling. Talbot park is, as a whole a better area in my opinion. ... more

Ed Finlan Group answered:
You can try to do a loan modification but sadly they are very difficult to get done and even if you do get approved, a fair amount of time the modification the lender agrees to isn';t really helpful.
If they have equity in the home, they should consider selling it so they don't lose the money. If it turns out they don't have any equity, they sound like they could be canidates to do a short sale. You can potentially find help at I do quite a few short sales if you want to ask any questions. I can also recommend a real estate broker who is a short sale specialist in your area.

Ah, sometimes you just want a number to start with... I know the feeling. So here's my number: $100/sf and up. Does that help? But, as others suggest, do follow up with a reputable contractor to work out the details because costs can go up significantly and quickly. ... more
