Could Fall City be one of the most expensive zip codes in the United States?

Forbes magazine lists the top 500 zip codes with the most expensive real estate.  In 2010 five zip codes in Washington State made that list.  Can you guess which ones?

42       Medina                98039      $2,170,308.    60              $ 132,665

I think these numbers will come as a surprise to many people.  When I am showing homes in Fall City and I ask my clients what they think the median house price is in Fall City, unless they have done their research, most of them underestimate the number by almost 50%.  In my opinion, it is because they do not understand the boundaries of the zip code and most of the homes that are higher priced are not in the downtown core.

What we enjoy about Fall City is the diversity of housing stock.  There are modest mobile homes on leased land and also large homes on acreage.  Fall City also has one of the largest collections of historic homes in unincorporated King County.   We have homes on lakes, rivers, acreage properties and view properties. There is truly something for everybody.  If someone wants to take advantage of the great community, excellent schools, scenic beauty and recreational opportunities nearby, they do not have to spend a lot of money to live here. On the other hand, if someone is looking for that signature property we have those, too.

We love to help people discover some of the hidden attributes of this community that make it a great place to live.
