It's no secret home prices are rising throughout the Seattle area, but Estately wanted to see how home prices vary depending on which Link light rail stop a home is near. To do this, Estately analyzed the last six months of home sales for houses, townhouses, and condos within a one mile radius of each current light rail stop, as well as those currently under construction, and stops that are planned and funded.
With a median home price of $605 per square foot, both the University Street stop and the Pioneer Square stop in Seattle were the most expensive. The Tukwila International Boulevard stop and the SeaTac/Airport stop were the least expensive at $178 per square foot.
In November, local voters will decide whether to approve ST3, a comprehensive transit plan which would add 62 new miles of light rail and 37 additional light rail stations, as well as other transportation options to the Puget Sound area.
