Remember when a family could buy a nice big house for $250,000 and a smile? In today’s crazy Seattle housing market, first-time homebuyers are willing to settle for smaller spaces and remote locations if it means they can afford a place to call their own. We came across seven listings on the market under $400,000 that seem worth considering. Let us know what you think of this selection.
9019 18th Avenue Southwest Unit B, Seattle — $315,000
This three-bedroom home was built in 2006, so it hasn’t yet been worn down by the hands of time like many other reasonably priced homes in the Seattle area. You and your family can spread out a little on the 1,333 square feet of lovely hardwood. Located not too far off the beaten path in South Delridge, this might make a nice home sweet home for a new family.

A two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Kirkland with a view of the water and a recently remodeled kitchen? Yes please!

1902 North 157th Street, Shoreline — $349,000
Big trees and a large fenced yard make this home ideal for dogs and toddlers. Shoreline is an up-and-coming neighborhood set to increase in value as Seattle continues to grow.
10211 California Avenue Southwest, West Seattle — $349,950
West Seattle is a great area. Although this isn’t the biggest home at just 690 square feet, there’s quite a bit of property to build on and enjoy.

Okay, Tukwila might be a little further out than where you’re hoping to go. But if you value space over all else, this four-bedroom, 2,120-square-foot home is a good deal.
