In some ways, the city of Issaquah gets a little bit overlooked in the discussion of Eastside locations to call home. Plenty of people talk about spots such as Sammamish, Bellevue, Redmond, and Kirkland, but it would be a mistake to ignore what Issaquah has to offer. Found right along I-90, Issaquah offers quick and easy access to many of the great spots around the Puget Sound area. Combine this convenient location with a pretty setting and plenty of housing options, and you have a recipe for a great place to call home.
For a city with a relatively modest population compared to places like Seattle and Bellevue, Issaquah actually occupies a rather significant geographic area. The city lays claim to sizeable chunks of land both north and south of I-90, and there are plenty of condo options on both sides. Some of those options are found up in the area known as the Issaquah Highlands, while others are found down in the older part of town near Front Street.
As a result of the many different locations around the city offering condo living, you’ll find that quite a few price ranges are represented on the market. Sure, there are luxury condos offering large floor plans and featuring price tags to match. At the same time, there are more affordable units with less space, great for those just getting started in their life on the Eastside. Navigating this busy market will be much easier with the right real estate agent, who can understand your needs and help you focus on the proper part of the city.
It’s not hard to find things to do in and around Issaquah and accessing Lake Sammamish State Park is a great place to start that conversation. As the name would indicate, this park provides visitors the ability to reach the waters of Lake Sammamish, which stretches from Issaquah in the south all the way up to Redmond in the north. There is a large boat launch for those who want to get out on the water, and a swimming area as well.
Living in Issaquah is going to provide you with many benefits, from the transportation advantage of being so close to I-90, to the many outdoor activities and great dining options in the area. In many ways, this city highlights what is so attractive about living on the Eastside. With much to do and see, and easy access to the best of the Puget Sound region, Issaquah is a fantastic place to call home.
When you set out on a search for a great Issaquah condo to call your own, you’ll likely be comforted to find how many properties are typically on the market. While prices in this area are typically rather high – as they are throughout the Eastside – the many benefits of living in or near Issaquah justify that lofty price. Team with a great real estate agent to make your search a little easier, and make sure that you act quickly when you find a property that suits your needs. Good luck!
