Edmonds is a waterfront community, about 11 miles northwest of Seattle. It’s known for its cozy small town feel, arts and food scene, and its ferry that runs to the peninsula town of Kingston. Its close proximity to both Seattle, and Everett, makes it convenient for commuters to either city, looking for the convenience of urban living, but on a smaller, calmer scale. It has extensive waterfront, and one of the State’s largest marinas. It is also the hometown of famed travel writer, Rick Steves. The median home value in Edmonds is about $550k.
