If you’re thinking of investing in Bremerton Real Estate, come July it’s only going to be 30 minutes from Seattle thanks to additional walk-on commuter Fast Ferries that will be added to the fleet.
King County home prices have hit a new high this last month, that coupled with low inventory is leaving a lot of prospective homeowners to shift their attention to neighboring cities that are within an easy commute distance. One of those areas is just across Puget Sound in Bremerton.
It’s not just the low prices that are attracting buyers, but the commute is about to get a lot faster. Three more walk-on commuter ferries will be added this summer which will make the commute time only about 28-minutes each way, which is half the time of whats currently in place. When you really think about it, sometimes that’s how long it takes to get from downtown to I-5 during rush-hour.
Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) reported that in King County alone, the Median home price was $560,000. Just across the Sound over in Kitsap County the median price range was $307,250.
The Kitsap walk-on ferry is expected to start service July 10.
