Houses in North Bend are just as expensive as Seattle. 

Maybe in White Center and parts of Buien in the SeaTac airport traffic zone.   But not Wallingford,  Greenlake or Madison Park.

or even NE Seattle.  My house has increased in value a stupid amount - I bought it in 1994. We did a few upgrades.  The neighbors 850sqft house goes for way too much - 660K according to Zillow. My wife and I would kill each other living that closely packed in...and they have a kid.  We just have a cat.

Getting to a destination has far more to do with the driver than the vehicle. wink.gif

so true. I had an '82 Datsun B210 wagon with no ground clearance at all - I could drive it all the way to the end of the MFK road back when it was open all the way to the end.  Sure I had to get out once in a while to plot my course and all the passengers had to get out a few times to raise it up a little.  I had to hydroplane across one particularly deep puddle - but I made it up and down several times in that car.  Ok, it took like 3 hours from North Bend to the end...but back then it was a mine field the whole way.  I prided myself in being able to drive just about any type of vehicle anywhere I wanted to go.  But the cars I had were cheap cheap cheap. I still have a cheap car for just such adventures.

"just" a cat.  shakehead.gif

A home without a cat -- and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat -- may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove title?

I have heard winter inversion is bad in Wenatchee as well.

Yes, much of eastern WA l has a problem with inversions in winter https://cliffmass.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-ddwinter-murk-of-eastern-washington.html . This is exacerbated by the fact that wood-burning is widespread (despite the fact that we have the cheapest electricity in the country), while adherence to burn bans is not.

Much better. Though....that might be a fur-covered walrus, not a cat

Seattle houses are regularly being bid up $300K.  I was just looking at something modest in Shoreline that listed for $1M and sold for $1.5M.  Doubt the same is happening in North Bend

It's definitely happening in North Bend. Check redfin sold homes for the past 3 mons. E.g. 906 NE 4th listed 1.1M sold for 1.41M. The worst part is a lot of these newer John Day homes are poorly built cookie cutter homes with tiny yard, zero lot line etc. Toll Bros aren't much better, they're asking 1.6M for the same 3 bed home that was 720k this time last year.
