Hi Sara,
Murray Franklin is a great local builder and that location is very good. It's close to shopping, transit and in a great school district. There is nothing wrong with Trossachs though, it's less than 10 minutes away and while I haven't reviewed the pricing differential lately, it's worth looking at.
As to the market, we experience a normal summer slow down in August as all but the most serious buyers are having fun in the good weather before school starts. September sees a normal uptick in activity before the gradual drop off into the winter.
Regarding timing your purchase, unless you are thinking short term, I wouldn't worry too much. Those sites are selling out quickly, however they have other sites coming on soon.

Freddy M. Delgadillo answered:
Many builders have a very specific criteria before they work with a Buyer/Client. Your price point/ budget will determine the type of quality builder you get. A solid number for a very reputable builder is around $200 sqft. - that will determine also on how detailed and trim you want your home.

Simple calculation:

Price of land [or structure on land]

+ size of structure @ $200sqft

= what its going to cost you.

i.e. If you were to buy a home already on a lot at $400K and build a 3,000sqft home @ $200sqft [$600K] the final project would cost you $1M.

Hope this helps. Reach out if you have any other questions.

Sahalee is very nice. I particularly like how they've left more trees than most the other golf course communities in the area. Some, however, might not like that. I would also note that there are some townhomes in the development.

There are other less expensive golf course communities and as noted, they might be a better commute for you if you commute to Seattle. Kent, Renton, Maple Valley and Federal Way all have golf course communities, and there are probably others that I'm forgetting.

I would note that finding the right location on a golf course can take time and patience.

Hi John,

There aren't a lot of lease option properties in the Sammamish / Eastlake area. I'm wondering if you know you can put 3% down on some of the conventional loan programs now.


I work with some outstanding, very experienced lenders and would be happy to refer you. They are happy to do a "no obligation" consultation with you.

You can set up a property search and include rental properties at my site: http://www.buyandsellseattlerealestate.com . You may need to do a straight lease for a year. Houses are selling well, so the only type of opportunity I can think of, that would be interested in a lease option would be someone who has to move, can afford their payments, but they still owe more on the home than it is worth in today's market. Some investors like to sell on lease option for a variety of strategic reasons.

Let me know how I can help.

Warmly,
Karen

Hi Infocus,
Welcome back. As a long time Sammamish resident, I'm biased. The School districts (Lake Washington and Issaquah) are great; the location is central with fairly easy access to I-90 and 520. The town has a diverse mix of people due in large part to the high tech firms that make up a large portion of the cities employers.
Sammamish has been named a top place to live several times by Money Magazine and was recently named The Most Friendly Town in America by Forbes Magazine.
Now, there is nothing wrong with any of the places you mentioned. We all share much of the same resources, environment and climate.
Prices in Sammamish have been climbing, but I believe that would be true of most of the greater Seattle market due to the current shortage of inventory.
I've linked a blog post below highlighting some of the awards I've mentioned.

At the risk of "steering," one of the definitions being selecting areas for people to live in or avoid based on their AGE and MARITAL STATUS . . .

To my mind, Z, you have a choice. You can live in the party, close to the party, or away from the party. You go to NYC a lot, you don't live upstairs from the clubs, across the street from the museums, down the block from the stadiums - you (probably) live in a residential area and GO to the happening places.

Sammamish is a residential community with commercial (shopping, dining, services) and recreational (as mentioned below) amenities. It is not a college town.

See you soon!

This is an expensive & time consuming proposition, but the end result will be a perfect home for you. If you can afford the time & money, go for it. Seek the advice of a good real estate broker to help you go through the process. It will lessen the burden to have someone with experience on your side.

Good luck to you in any case,

Dan Edwards answered:
Supply and Demand. That is your answer. However I ran a quick report for Sammamish area Presales and it looks as if prices last year between December and March dipped down before rebounding in June. Past performance doesn't always guarantee future results, however if your a motivated buyer this time of year the builders sometimes will be more willing to deal than in June.
