Columbia City Homes For Sale In Seattle

Located in the Rainier Valley area of southeast Seattle between Interstate 5 and Lake Washington, Columbia City is known as the personality of the Seattle area.  Columbia City has been designated a historic landmark district in Seattle and has remained intact even through a period of growth and rising popularity.  Oversight by a board of citizens is necessary to make sure the buildings and public spaces retain their historic appearance and the area is preserved. Strolling past brick buildings, a jazz club, organic cafes and iconic diner Geraldine’s Counter, Columbia City can feel like a quiet street in a New York borough.  From the Andrew Carnegie-funded Columbia City branch of the Seattle Public Library built in 1914, to the colorful storefronts, it is rare to find a neighborhood that has more turn-of-the-century houses and shops than sky-high town homes and condos.  The allure of Columbia City is no longer a secret.  Many hope to get a starter home priced around $200,000-$300,000.  Some houses in Columbia City are priced higher because they have 2,500-square-foot Craftsman-style designs, rather than the smaller bungalows found in nearby neighborhoods.

There are still more homes sold in Columbia City for less than $500,000 than almost any other neighborhood in Seattle. In addition, multifamily housing is under construction in several locations near the Rainier Avenue South corridor.  New residents are often impressed with how quickly they can get downtown, but there are many things to do without ever leaving the neighborhood. That will be especially true now that a new PCC Natural Markets store has opened in the heart of Columbia City. Popular spots include Ark Lodge Cinemas, the Columbia City Theater, Genesee Park and Rainier Playfield.  The area is also home to a growing number of consignment shops and smaller specialty stores.  When the Sound Transit Link Light Rail station opened in 2009, just blocks from Columbia City’s main core, the neighborhood became easily accessible and walkable. On a day when the freeways might have hour-long backups, residents can get to the Columbia City station via a 20-minute train trip from Seattle’s Westlake Center.  Homes for sale in Columbia City vary: there are Condos For Sale In Columbia City, Town-Homes For Sale In Columbia City, and Single-Family Homes For Sale In Columbia City.  There are also many New Homes For Sale In Columbia City and many under construction.  Thank you for using to find 30% more listings than Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.
