LOCATION

Living in the Benson Hill area of Renton lets you enjoy that inviting neighborhood feel where parks and schools are close by, yet you’re merely minutes to top amenities in the region. For starters, the charming Fairwood West Community Park is right down the street. The library, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, Safeway, LA Fitness, Ace Hardware, Bartell Drugs, Rite Aid, and much more are all less than 1 mile away. There are also so many lovely parks and trails in the immediate area, too! When you’d like more variety, many other conveniences aren’t far beyond—for example, both The Landing and Downtown Renton are only about 8 minutes away.

COMMUTE

Many who commute into Seattle, Bellevue, or other cities on the Eastside will find that Renton is an ideal spot that provides great access to both I-5 and I-405. In fact, you’re only about 22 minutes into Downtown Seattle and 17 minutes into Downtown Bellevue, making this an especially excellent location for partners who may go to either city for work. If you’re interested in commuting via bus, Route 148 picks up just down the street and it will take you all the way to the South Renton Park & Ride.

AFFORDABILITY

This particular home is the perfect starter home! For home buyers who are hoping to live closer to Seattle or Bellevue but are feeling priced out at the moment, we definitely recommend looking to Renton. Buying a home here gives you an “in” into the real estate market, so you can build equity until you plan your next move. Right now as of March 2022, Renton’s median sale price for single family homes is at $825,000. At the same time, Seattle’s current median sale price for single family homes is $1,127,500 and Bellevue’s current median sale price for single family homes is $2,275,000. In Renton, you’re also much more likely to find a home with a yard (like this one!), and it’s much more likely to be a single-family home (vs. a townhouse, like you’ll find closer to this price point in Seattle.) If you’d like to learn more about affordability in Renton, we break it all down in this blog!

RENTON REVITALIZATION

There are so many exciting things happening in Renton right now. In the past 10 or so years, The Landing was completed and really started to thrive; this 21-acre retail center has become a popular destination for shopping, dining, entertainment, etc. Another exciting development has been the revitalization of Downtown Renton. There has been a major effort by the city in recent years to redo the streets, sidewalks, street lights, etc. to create a safer, more inviting environment for pedestrians. The city is also in the process of making major upgrades to water, sewer, and stormwater utilities to support future development needs in the downtown core. In the meantime, Downtown Renton is already a fun place to visit! Grab food at several popular restaurants, browse cute shops, enjoy a picnic at one of the adorable parks, and more.
