This past week I retrieved my latest issue of Money Magazine from the mailbox and was pleasantly surprised to find that Money Magazine ranked the seaside community of Mukilteo as among the very best communities to live in. Ranked number ten in the country by the magazine, the town offers spectacular views of the Puget Sound, the Olympics, and the Cascades if your home is situated to look east. Among the reasons to consider living in Mukilteo were the good schools and lower property taxes when comparing to other communities in the study.
In today’s market, when you consider the housing price pullback, community, schools, employment and intangibles, Snohomish County offers some of the very best real estate in the Northwest.
I can certainly attest to the spectacular setting in Mukilteo. While waiting for the Ferry to sign some clients on Whidbey Island this past Spring (one of the perks of being in the escrow business is traveling to different communities) I took some pictures of the “glass-like” water scenery (can be very rough) in the morning. I’ve never seen any portion of the Puget Sound water so calm.
