From Fortune Magazine

“Home prices have been on the rise nationally since February, but no area of the country has seen a spike like the Pacific Northwest.

“The price of single family homes in the Seattle area has soared 13.5% in the past 12 months. That’s more than twice the national average of 5.9%.

“The median single family home in Seattle, as of August, costs $730,000 – though residents willing to brave the 1.5 hour (one way) commute from Snohomish or Pierce County can find a home for $455,000 or $313,000, respectively.”
