Mukilteo homes are some of the most desirable on the market. With the town's name meaning "good camping spot", one can trust that the area has been a wonderful place to live for centuries.
Mukilteo homes make perfect use of the town's excellent location. With sparkling Puget Sound to the west and bustling Everett and Interstate 5 to the east, residents of Mukilteo homes have quick access to nature, jobs, and amenities. Many residents work right in the affluent town, while others drive a few, short minutes to an Everett job. Others commute 35 minutes to Seattle. (In fact, as real estate prices have increased drastically in and around Seattle, more and more people are choosing to live in beautiful Mukilteo homes they would be unable to afford in King County.
The town's waterfront location ensures that even those who cannot afford to live directly on Puget Sound are never more than few minutes from the coast, and a high percentage of Mukilteo homes boast magnificent views. Hundreds of the town's back porches face the shining sea waves, colorful sunsets, and local ferry that connects the town to Whidbey Island.
These incredible Mukilteo homes can be found at quite reasonable prices. As of July, 2007 (when this article was written), the median price of a Mukilteo home was $519,900. This figure includes even the most extraordinary waterfront mansions. Quality single-family houses can be found in the low-$300,000's, while condominiums and townhouses often sell for even less. These numbers are especially attractive to those interested in commuting to Seattle. (In comparison, Redmond - a town that boasts minimal waterfront and only a slightly shorter commute to Seattle - has a median price of $625,000, and Sammamish - another residential suburb 25 minutes from Seattle - currently has a median price of $765,000.)
The town's houses are far from the cookie-cutter styles found in many other cities. Mukilteo homes range from 100-years-old to brand-new, and the styles vary accordingly. Charming cottages from the early 1900's can be found in several neighborhoods, and modern Mukilteo homes boasting a plethora of windows, decks, and open space are being constructed on large lots both on and away from the waterfront. Buyers can find just about any trait in a Mukilteo home - large or small, sunlit or shady, away from neighbors or in developed communities.
Mukilteo homes are rare finds in Western Washington, as beautiful homes in desirable communities at affordable prices are becoming increasingly hard to come by.
