Appreciation by neighborhood: King County

Last year, single-family homes in King County appreciated at 16%- the highest rate since 1990. Almost every neighborhood saw prices increase by more than 10%. The median price for a single-family home was just over $370,000.

Notes: The appreciation was calculated on a price-per-square-foot basis. Median sales price means half of all homes sold for more and half sold for less. The neighborhoods are King County assessor work areas. Downtown Seattle is considered a commercial district, which is why figures for it are not included in this chart.
