We are planning on moving to Everett, WA from CA in the next year or so. We would like to purchase a home before we move. Any advise on purchasing while still living in CA? Also what area of Everett should we be looking in?

What is important to you in a home? Do you want views of Mountain, Sound (our Bay), Valley, or City Lights? Are schools important now? Newer homes vs older homes? Everett is a very diverse City and while it is smaller than Seattle, it is spread out quite a lot. What price range are you wanting to stay within? Thanks, Debra Hamilton

We have a toddler now so a good school zone is important. We would like to be between the Mukilteo ferry terminal and the I-5. We are looking ideally for a home in the 130,000 to 160,000 range and aren't really into a new home or an old home, just one that hit's us in the right way.

You'll want to look at zip codes 98203 & 98204. The price range is a little low - even for Everett, but there are some properties in that price range. Mukilteo School District is a very good school district but you'll also want to take a look at the individual schools to see how they compare. You can go to www.greatschools.org and get the ratings of those schools. You'll want to look at homes and townhouses.
