Reside & Thrive reached out to 5 brokers in the 5 hottest millennial cities recently, asking what $450,000 can buy, and in the Seattle area it was Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty broker Colin Foote! The article describes the recent growth in Seattle, including its position on WalletHub as “number one in the nation for their lucrative job market and second highest for participation in physical activities,” in addition to its healthy economy thanks to a thriving technology sector.

As Ellese McKenney writes, “with a reasonably affordable real estate market and stimulated economy, all signs point to its being a great time for Millennials to become home owners,” thus Colin Foote offered his professional insight about a perfect “millennial” unit at The Gainsborough on Capitol Hill. Colin pinpointed this particular locale because of its walking proximity to:

  • The most vibrant Seattle nightlife hot spot (Broadway and Pike)
  • Streets lined with unique restaurants, some of the best in Seattle
  • Downtown central business district and shopping
  • Ample major employment opportunities, predominantly medical
  • Nearby Seattle University campus and Seattle Central, or a quick bike ride to University of Washington
  • Ample public transportation options
  • A friendly pickup soccer, Frisbee, kickball game day or night at Cal Anderson Park
  • Annual block parties, parades, and other community events
