    Although Ballard is changing, it still retains much of its old charm and character.

  • market

    Ballard represents good value in comparison to some other neighborhoods—you can still get a decent deal.

  • What to expect

    In the future, you can expect more mid-rise construction and townhomes. Light Rail arrives 2039.

  • real talk

    The neighborhood is growing and prices continue to march forward—just like everything else. Ballard is expensive but less than other Seattle neighborhoods mostly due to the distance from I-5 and 520.

welcome to Ballard

With an economically diverse population, Ballard also offers a wide range of home choices. Ballard is where blue collar shipbuilders lived in the 1920s, and so, there are lots of charming older homes that have been remodeled over the years. When it comes to increasing density, Ballard is on the short list. Many of its newer housing options cater to a more high-end client. Ballard rezoned for townhouse construction before many other neighborhoods, and with it's humble history many of the little work houses have been demolished and townhouses have sprung up everywhere. You will need to like density to live in Ballard proper.

While Ballard is more low-key, that shouldn’t be mistaken for boring! If you buy a house in Ballard you will love the food, shops and activities.

A Closer Look at Ballard Neighborhoods

Ballard should really be broken up into three neighborhoods, in my opinion. 15th is the dividing line for east and west—these are totally different neighborhoods. 60th street divides south and north. Each neighborhood has its own character: On the east side of 15th, you’ll see many single-family home options, with little yard and picturesque, sidewalk-lined streets. On the west of 15th, you’ll notice a more dense neighborhood with more condos, townhomes, apartments, businesses, and restaurants. Beyond 60th, the landscape starts to change back to homes, although not as many townhomes. But it’s all still Ballard, with the character that people so love!
