Green Lake Neighbors: Isn’t it funny how each neighborhood in a metropolitan city has zig zag borders and fuzzy lines? Are you one of those who lay in the “middle”?
People tend to get possessive, don’t we. Yes, I’m guilty too. But Seattle’s neighborhoods are so tightly woven together, it’s hard not to know what’s going on in more than 3 neighborhoods at one time.
Since Seattle went to mail-in ballots, we can only assume the safest way to know which neighborhood you live in is to locate the closest public school. This Fall the Seattle Public School District will be utilizing a new assignment plan. Students will be attending the closest local public school to their home. The reason? Schools need to adhere to budget cuts. Less time driving a school bus saves us a cool $2.2 million bucks.
So the next time you’re searching for Green Lake properties in the MLS, make sure it’s in the Green Lake public school zone. THIS is a great site where you can find the boundry for your child by typing in your home address.
I cannot leave without a quick look at the real etate action in Green Lake! There are 68 handsome bungalow and craftsman style Green Lake homes that are actively on the market. Some might say they’re in Green Lake, but we know it’s a close call. Median days on the market is a cool 53 days for a 3 bedroom $384,950 beauty! There are Green Lake townhouses and condos available too but at these prices, a single family residence makes it so affordable.
Green Lake is active and full of life! Let us show you with your next visit to the Green Lake neighborhood.
