We consider the Kitsap Peninsula separately, apart from Gig Harbor and Bainbridge Island, which present different dynamics as each is a close-in commuter market for a major city (Tacoma and Seattle, respectively. Bremerton is the largest employment center in Kitsap County.) This peninsula offers saltwater frontage from Hood Canal to the Puget Sound, and homes are often more affordable than equivalent properties in exurban communities along the I-5 and I-90 corridors. Waterfront prices here are distinctively influenced by city and mountain views, and access to ferries (i.e., at Kingston and Southworth).
With 230 miles of coastline in Kitsap County, there were 226 waterfront sales between July 2016 and June 2017. The average selling price of these homes was nearly $578 thousand, and the average price per square foot was just over $260. The highest price paid was $1,995,000 for a home in Kington within walking distance of the Edmonds ferry terminal. Waterfront homes in this sub-region sold within 96 days on average.
