According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal, “The technology boom is pushing its way north up the Pacific Coast, boosting real-estate prices, sparking neighborhood squabbles and creating new demand for luxury homes asking $1.5 million or more. [Seattle’s] high-end real-estate market is on the rise, as executives relocate from pricier locales likeSilicon Valley.”
“The Greater Seattle Metro Area has fully recovered from the Great Recession and we are setting new benchmarks in sales values,” said Dean Jones, President & CEO of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “The catalyst for demand is our diversified and booming economy, driven in large part by the tech sector, and our emerging status as a preferred gateway for Chinese buyers. Our abundance of natural resources and affordable waterfront lifestyles and rising rents, which are compelling Millennials to step towards homeownership.”
“With companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, Zillow, Tableau, Concur, and many more basing their operations out of the Seattle area, the talent level and opportunity for technology professionals is abundant,” says Joseph Brazen, owner and designated broker of Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty. “Along with these giants, are what we like to call sleeping giants, the start-ups in industries such as gaming, cloud computing, biotech and more that scatter Seattle and Bellevue.”
