According to this article by RedFin, Phinney Ridge will be one of the top ten hottest real estate markets in 2014. By comparing page views by patrons of the site to different properties all over the country, RedFin determined that Phinney Ridge is going to have a big year. They saw a 178% increase of page views of properties in this area when compared to the previous year. That coupled with the median home price in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood being just over $500,000 lands it at #7 according to RedFin.
The article states that “the real trend in the 2014 neighborhood popularity is a short commute at an affordable price. The trending neighborhoods offer a short drive to or easy access to a commuter rail line at prices that are not the most expensive in the city.” With easy access to downtown Seattle as well as many transit options, Phinney Ridge fits this description perfectly. I’m sure Red Mill will approve of this!
