Burien - Dash Point - Des Moines - Normandy Park - Redondo Beach (Federal Way) - Three Tree Point
The Puget Sound shoreline in South King County runs south from Seola Beach to Dash Point State Park. Because this area was historically outside “the city,” it has taken longer to develop. There are consequently more properties available for sale, at selling prices that have escalated into the millions of dollars in recent years, especially in Burien and Normandy Park at the northern end. Sixteen waterfront single-family homes were sold from January 2018 through May 2018, at an average selling price of over $1.5 million dollars ($1,510,416)—although at an average market time of just over 6 months, homes here have taken a bit longer to sell than homes in Seattle.
The statistics for this area include a number of smaller lakefront properties, particularly in Federal Way. As they are priced more modestly, these homes tended to sell more quickly than those homes with frontage on Puget Sound. Yet because all of these were single-family homes on lots, the lowest-priced waterfront home in Dash Point was $380,000, while the highest price in South King County ($2.99 million) was once again a home in Normandy Park.
