Saturday and Sunday are slated to be busy open house days around Western Washington. On June 27 and 28, Windermere will sponsor 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.
“What better way to kick-off summer than with a waterfront home tour?” said OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “People often associate waterfront homes with luxury estates, but we are featuring properties that fit a variety of needs, styles, and budgets throughout Western Washington.”
Jacobi said that with the volume of water that we have throughout the area, waterfront properties have always been a popular choice, but in recent months sales have been booming, “In the four-county region, sales of waterfront homes are up by almost 11 percent compared to a year ago, and the average sales price is up by 18.9 percent.” Jacobi says much of this can be attributed to the strong local economy which is attracting high-income executives, international interest, and second home buyers looking to invest in waterfront living.
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. The listing will note the availability; those listed as “by appointment only” must contact the agent for a private tour. Participating homes will be identified by balloons that are tied to each roadside open house sign.
Brokers from Windermere Mercer Island will also be hosting open houses this weekend; some of them are part of the inaugural Western Washington Waterfront Open House Tour. Details about these Mercer Island and Seattle opens are below, and include a link to the home’s video tour. It’s forecast to be hot, hot, hot in the Seattle area all weekend, with daytime temperatures in the upper 80s. Don’t forget to hydrate – bring your water bottle with you and keep it filled.
Have a fun touring waterfront properties this weekend – I hope you find your dream home!
