Market Trends at the Water's Edge

Life on the shores of Puget Sound, as well as its neighboring straits and harbors, lakes and archipelagos, offers all the pleasures and adventure that draw people to the water’s edge. Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty presents a look at the waterfront market trends for the first half of 2017, from the shores of Bainbridge Island to the Emerald City and the Eastside.


This annual waterfront report mainly concerns price trends. The price of each waterfront property is influenced by normal location factors affecting the value of any real estate. However, waterfront sales may also be influenced by features such as docks, moorage, and beach or tidelands access, which may be conditioned on easements or otherwise shared.

Since 2014, waterfront prices have increased in each of the sub-regions covered in the report, except for the Four Points.
