Neighborhood Spotlight: Shoreline

Live the Life

S H O R E L I N E

There are so many great neighborhoods in the Seattle area and they are constantly changing!  The only way to truly keep up is to spend some time exploring and asking friends who live, work, or spend time there.  We had a blast learning more about Shoreline over the past couple of weeks.

Alicia Shope & family were a valuable resource to us, since they recently bought a house in Shoreline and Alicia is a real estate agent that specializes in this part of town.

Shoreline is a great choice for buyers looking for something slightly outside the city “hustle” and want a more laid back neighborhood feel with good schools.  Shoreline is home to 14 neighborhoods including Ballinger, Briarcrest, Echo Lake, Highland Terrace, Hillwood, Innis Arden, Meridian Park, North City, Parkwood, Richmond Beach, Richmond Highlands, Ridgecrest, The Highlands, and Westminster Triangle.

Homes in Shoreline

Shoreline has become a popular choice as Seattle spreads North due to Ballard & Greenlake real estate exploding in the past few years.  Shoreline provides a slightly slower pace than most of the Seattle neighborhoods.  The schools are highly rated ( see Greatschools.com for ratings ) and have attracted families to this area.  Generally, lots are larger and provide a little more breathing room and is home to countless evergreen trees that keep the neighborhoods feeling very “northwest” and not like a “concrete jungle.”

The median home price on Shoreline is $531,000 which is an increase of 14.9% over the past year (according to Zillow).
