San Juan Island - Orcas Island - Lopez Island
Shaw Island - Blakely Island - Decatur Island - Waldron Island
As described in the profile for North Sound waterfront sales, the islands of San Juan County offer more miles of coastline than any other county in the U.S., and the 84 homes sold in this archipelago from July 2016 through June 2017 include the most highly-priced sales in the greater sub-region. The average waterfront selling price in the county during this period was $1.2 million; but the 18 sales on Orcas Island averaged $1.3 million each; and the 35 sales on San Juan Island itself averaged $1.45 million. The top waterfront sale on Orcas Island was $4.05 million; and the $5.6 million leading sale on San Juan Island was also the highest-priced sale in the North Sound
Since 2014, waterfront prices in the San Juans have risen at a compound annual growth rate of 14.8 percent. However, the islands are comparatively remote from Seattle and the Eastside, though accessible by ferry and—more quickly—by seaplane. This increases the market time to sale for most properties on the islands. The average CDOM for waterfront homes in the San Juan Islands was 316 during the past 12 months.
