From the rain-soaked forests of the coast to the fertile, rolling hills of the Palouse, Washington state is a great place to live. However, choosing where in this great state to buy a home is a conundrum. Do you buy a pricy home in rapidly growing Seattle or Bellevue? Do you opt for less expensive real estate options in cities like Spokane or Tacoma? How about a cabin in the Methow Valley, a beach house at Ocean Shores or a dairy farm in Lynden? To help you choose your location Estately created this not-so-scientific map depicting the state’s cultural differences. Hope it helps!
