Buying Homes and Property

Housing in Renton is considerably less expensive than Seattle and Bellevue and numerous new developments provide a greater range of choices. The relative affordability of homes in the City of Renton allows many families to make their first home purchase in our community, and others to move into a home with more features and amenities than they could afford in other Puget Sound markets. 

Exciting new housing opportunities in Renton range from luxury waterfront townhomes to moderately priced single-family houses to urban condominiums.  For more information about local housing options, you may want to visit the Property Profiles.  A local real estate agent may also be very helpful in helping find the perfect home and neighborhood.
