Neighborhood Spotlight: Mount Baker

Located just south of I-90, and running south to Genesse Park, Mount Baker is a neighborhood that is definitely reaping the benefits of a booming real estate market. Taking their name from the sweeping views of Mount Baker to the north, this neighborhood is a great cross section of what Seattle has to offer. On the water side it boasts the sprawling mansions that once typified Seattle following the turn of the last century, but as you move west toward Rainier Avenue, older single-family homes are giving way to town homes and modern architecture. The rising cost of housing continues to force a surge of new construction, and with easy access to the new light rail, commuting from Mount Baker has never been easier.

Given the relative affordability and continued growth, Mount Baker has seen a 13% increase in home prices over the past year and currently has a median home price of $568,800.
