BACKGROUND

Lake Hills is a post-50’s mass development planned community, built on a system of winding boulevards and quiet neighborhood streets. A community swim and recreation club, The Samena Club, and the Lake Hills East Bellevue Little League Field are also centrally located. The distinctive Lake Hills entry signs are reminiscent of the 50s-era housing style, and there are still great examples of Mid-Century Modern architecture in the area. The Lake Hills Real Estate market is only going to increase in value!

LAKE HILLS TODAY

Today, Lake Hills is a culturally rich community. It has a multitude of parks, wetlands, open space, trails, shopping, restaurants, schools, and the new Lake Hills Library. Lake Hills is also home to the Lake Hills Greenbelt, including the Lake Hills Farm Fresh Produce Stand (affectionately known as the Little Red Barn) and the Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm.

LAKE HILLS REAL ESTATE

The location, lot sizes, relative affordability, and community assets are making Lake Hills one of the hot real estate markets on the Eastside. Combined with the extremely successful revitalizion of Kelsey Creek Shopping Center and Lake Hills Village, Lake Hills is experiencing construction of many new homes, and rehab and modernization of the 50’s homes. If you want a Mid-Century Modern home at a great price, Lake Hills is your spot!

Lake Hills is situated in a unique location, making the old adage “location, location, location” absolutely true. Easy access to 520, I-90, and 405. Minutes to Microsoft. The Lake Hills Connector road gives nearly instant access to downtown Bellevue.

5 Reasons Millennials Choose to Buy

5 Reasons Millennials Choose to Buy [INFOGRAPHIC] | Simplifying The Market

 

Some Highlights:

  • “The majority of millennials said they consider owning a home more sensible than renting for both financial and lifestyle reasons — including control of living space, flexibility in future decisions, privacy and security, and living in a nice home.”
  • The top reason millennials choose to buy is to have control over their living space, at 93%.
  • Many millennials who rent a home or apartment prior to buying their own homes dream of the day when they will be able to paint the walls whatever color they’d like, or renovate an outdated part of their living space.
