We’ve found the perfect way for you to kick off summer this year. On June 27 and 28, Windermere is sponsoring the first ever Western Washington Waterfront Open House Tour. More than 125 homes from Bellingham to Westport are available for visitors to tour by boat, bike, or car. Homes are priced from $299,000 to $32 million. Yes, you read right, $32 million. But not all the homes are uber expensive; there are properties that fit a wide variety of needs, styles, and budgets.
If you’re wondering about the investment potential of a waterfront home, you should note that sales for these properties have been booming throughout Western Washington. In the Puget Sound region, the average sales price is up nearly 19 percent* compared to a year ago. With the amount of water we have throughout the area, it’s no surprise that waterfront homes are a popular choice, but our strong local economy is doing its part to drive up sales activity and prices.
A map of the homes and their open house hours can be found here; most will be held open from 10am-4pm on June 27 and 28. Just look for the open house signs with the blue balloons to identify which homes are a part of the tour.
