As the resident green agent in High Point, I wanted to give a quick update – we’re in the middle of the Fall selling season in West Seattle and there are some very nice single family homes, townhomes, condos, and even a carriage home for sale.
To be clear, as a Washington licensed real estate broker I represent all types of property, not just what is considered “green”. But to explain, this means I have countless hours or additional training to help people identify green real estate (healthy homes), which is especially valuable to those who have chemical sensitivities, asthma, or allergies. My designations include Earth Advantage® Broker, EcoBroker Certified®, and Built Green® Certified Professional: Real Estate Broker.
When it comes to West Seattle, especially High Point, I am the healthy homes expert.
See High Point West Seattle Homes For Sale. Some homes currently being marketed for sale require lender approval (short sale). Ask for details.
What makes High Point so great?
Well, first of all, it is in West Seattle. I have lived in West Seattle since 1997. And I won’t leave. It has everything I need so I don’t actually have to leave at all, which is nice. And for when I do want to pop downtown for a night out, pick up someone at the airport, or go mall-hopping at Southcenter, all of that is within 15 minutes (using the West Seattleites travel tips, which I am happy to share).
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to buy a brand new home in a Built Green Certified Community right in my own neighborhood. I lived within a mile of this location for ten years, and watched the development of this community over that time with great interest. When I took a property tour in April 2007 I wasn’t looking for a new home and had no intention of moving – but what I found in High Point made me put my house on the market almost immediately, and the sale of our home on 18th Ave SW and the purchase of our townhome on SW Raymond all managed to squeek through right at the beginning of the real estate market fallout. We feel lucky that we managed to get moved and settled without any hassle.
The utilities are underground so the views are not impeded by anything…but trees. And I like trees. The old trees in High Point were saved during redevelopment and they *make* this neighborhood. There are great views of downtown, sunrise, sunset, trails in the woods, access to Camp Long and the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail all within walking distance.
