In an effort to reduce my commute time to less than two hours each direction, I am thinking of moving to West Seattle. Any body in that area have any insights? From driving through I see older homes (circa 1940's) , tiny lots, and tiny single car garages. Is that a fair statement?

My parents sold their house in January for $398,000, they bought the house in 1990 for $80,000.



A friend bought a townhouse near Greenlake (it has a great view of I-5) not even two years ago, the next door townhouse (the other one in the set) just sold for almost 50% more than my friends cost.

Depending on which "end" of West Seattle you are aiming for, you may love it or hate it.

The further south you go, the closer you are to crime problems. The old old homes are rapidly increasing in value as some minor gentrification takes place.

I'm thinking of the Fauntleroy area
