Seattle waterfront comes in many ways, shapes, and forms, but many Seattle area residents have started to migrate just a tiny bit North to some of the most affordable and beautiful Lake Washington waterfront that Seattle has to offer. Most people don’t generally think of Lake Forest Park first when they think of waterfront, but the city is nestled on the banks of Lake Washington and features some amazing waterfront properties.
In fact, the Lake Forest Park waterfront homes are spectacular to say the least, but they don’t pop up very often. Just one has sold in MLS in the last year.

Lake Forest Park WA Homes for sale – Market update right before the tax deadline… What has sold since 3/1/2010? 12 Lake Forest Park homes have sold and closed since the beginning of March 2010. They range in price from $260,000 to $600,000 with an average selling price per square foot of $194. Think 12 is good? This is compared to 22 altogether for the entire year so far. More than half have sold as the deadline for the tax credit approaches. I think the tax credit definitely is having an impact on the sales that have closed so far.
Don’t know what I am talking about? If you want to take advantage of the $8000 IRS Homebuyer tax credit and otherwise qualify, you need to get a purchase and sale agreement signed around by 4/30. You don’t have to close by 4/30, but you do need to get the home purchase under contract by that date and close by the end of June.
Pending Lake Forest Park Homes For Sale: If you aren’t impressed by the increased sold homes in Lake Forest Park, then look at the ones under contract waiting to close. These are the ones that fall within the tax credit date range. Let’s look at these Pendings – these are the Lake Forest Park homes for sale that are under contract. There are an additional 31 Lake Forest Park homes for sale that are in fact under contract. They range from $208,950 to $1,450,000.

The Swim Club is pretty special – swim lessons, polo, water aerobics, and more – lots of updated activities and a great place to gather with your neighbors.
So what are the Sheridan Beach Club Boundaries and where can you find homes within these boundaries with Lake Forest Park Beach Rights?
