In Maple Valley, The Time is Now for First Time Home Buyers

Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott

Even in Maple Valley, where homes are priced somewhat more moderately in comparison to other communities east of Seattle, starter homes were still unobtainable for many first time home buyers because prices were still a little more than they could obtain financing for.


Maple Valley Real Estate

Well the market is different, changing, and with that change is a drop on entry level home prices, even new construction is selling as much as 40 K  less than they sold for 18 months ago. Pair that with the surge of new construction and growth that Maple Valley and the entire Southeast King County region has experienced in the last 2 years, and the first time home buyer will find they have a lot of inventory to choose from... even below 300K and a lot of new construction just above 300K.

For a "hot list" of properties, send me an email at

Want to get going on that purchase but need to get prequalified? Just let me know, my team can help!
