Seattle Magazine & Zillow just published an article last week for their predictions in 2018 – some starting (and not so startling) neighborhoods made the list!

Most Appreciation
Belltown, 7.8 percent
Delridge, the Industrial District (i.e., SoDo), Highland Park and Riverview, 7.2 percent
Beacon Hill, Georgetown and South Park, 7 percent

Still Appreciating – just not as rapidly!
University District, Laurelhurst, Windermere and Bryant, 3.5 percent
Montlake, Madison Park and Denny-Llaine, 4.2 percent
West Seattle, Alki and North Admiral, 4.4 percent

Fastest Appreciation
If you want to move into a neighborhood where the homes are appreciating more quickly than other places, the median home prices in these neighborhoods have had the fastest year-over-year appreciation between December 2016 and December 2017.
Northgate, 25.2 percent
Belltown, 24.9 percent

Slowest Appreciation
In some areas of the country, the average home appreciation of these neighborhoods would seem impressive. But in Seattle, median home prices increased most slowly in these areas.
Madison Park, 5.5 percent
Hawthorne Hills, 9.2 percent
Olympic Manor, 9.4 percent

If you are looking to invest in 2018  (and stop wasting your money on expensive rent) then, follow these price points to see where you’re likely to find a house in your range, and where homes are likely to appreciate the most. All figures are for median home prices.
