Housing Trends in Snoqualmie Ridge and North Bend

Housing prices for real estate in the Snoqualmie and North Bend area are on the rise and they’re forecasted to increase but in moderation. The quality and value of what you’ll receive for your money is next to none however! The type of nearly new home you could purchase on the ‘Ridge or in North Bend would barely get you a small condo or townhouse in the city, and a much smaller home or older home just 15minutes away. Thus, people are flocking to this area since it’s just a 20-25 minute commute on I-90 into Bellevue and has a fairytale feeling of tranquility you won’t find many places in Washington so close to the city.

Living on Snoqualmie Ridge versus North Bend or Snoqualmie/Fall City Outskirts

Snoqualmie Ridge has a similar feel to the Issaquah Plateau or Sammamish Plateau in the respect it’s a planned community living style with a central area for dining, lots of local parks to play and entertain, and excellent roads in and around the developments. Streets are lined with carefully manicured landscaping and the community feels very safe, cozy and everything you need is within 10-minutes.

North Bend and Snoqulamie’s outskirts leading to Fall City however, are a bit more loose, in what you’d expect for having a little more space/acreage and more privacy away from the planned community aspect. Whether you prefer one over the other for lifestyle they’re both available and the inventory is such that you’ll have a few options every other week.
