Is it a crazy idea to think about moving from Sammamish to Redmond Ridge?
I love the current area, but there is a new community in Redmond Ridge East that has a very nice home that I would like to buy.
Another attractive point is that the community has a lot of Indians (I am Indian too) and will be very nice for my parents to socialize.
Sammamish too has a lot of Indians, but not that many in my immediate neighborhood.

One option is to wait till I find a nice home in Sammamish, but I like this home so much that it is hard to wait. Thinking more from my heart I guess.

Do folks have any opinion on which area is better? Is it foolish to think about moving away from Sammamish (with its greenery and lakes) to RR?

Not crazy. Which one is better is subjective. How would the move affect your commute? That would be a big factor to me. Maybe try renting there and see if you like it?

From what I know of Redmond Ridge, it's rather crammed in. Of course, if you buy something newish in Sammamish, you are likely to get the same. The desirable neighborhoods in Sammamish, to me, are the older ones that actually have some privacy. Don't think you can get that in Redmond Ridge easily. But maybe that doesn't matter to you.

Are you renting in Sammamish? What area?

Can you post a link to the RR house? Just like buying a car, don't fall in love with the house first, you will end up overpaying. There is always another house.

Depending on where you work that could double your commute, that traffic from Marymoor to RR is pretty bad. On the other hand they have the great
watershed preserve trail system and some pretty decent restaurants up there now. I just prefer the variety of homes in Sammamish to the more cookie-cutter style at RR. Both are nice areas to live in though.
