Default Lake Hills mid-century houses

I concur with bellevuelocal - I live in the Lake Hills part of Bellevue and much of the housing is mid-century.

However I'll have to disagree with toughguy about 'white bread' Bellevue...that's no longer a true statement. Bellevue has a higher percentage of minority residents than Seattle does, with a very high percentage of asian and hispanic residents.

Lake Hills isn't at all 'sketchy', but if it's something you're concerned about see if your real estate agent can come up with % owner-occupied and/or % of rentals in a specific neighborhood. Higher percentage rentals generally correspond with higher crime rates.

Oh there is diversity in Lake Hills, Crossroads, Eastgate, Factoria, and possibly Overlake... but once you get into places like Newport Hills, Somerset, Bridle Trails, its upper middle class whites, almost exclusively.
