I am looking for property in Washington, we definitely want to be west of the mountains, my husband wants a place where it doesn't snow every year and we want to farm. We need the place to be affordable. We LOVE Port Townsend and Fall City, but know Port Townsend will probably be too expensive.In-laws live in Sammamish so if we were no further then 2 hours that would be awesome.

Husband is a licensed plumber and solar installer in Florida, so if he continued to do that would have to get certified up there. But I don't know how much solar you all have going on. But I think his skills would probably allow us to go most places.

Also we know some places flood pretty badly up there, so we don't want somewhere flood prone.

any ideas?

Enumclaw, WA

Enumclaw, Washington - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Its at the very south end of King County and a nice quiet farm town and wont be nearly as expensive as fall city and sammamish.


But it does come with the stigma from about 6-7 years ago when there was some animal/human sexual action going on.

Go for nearby Buckley (in Pierce County) instead of Enumclaw. King County taxes are just too high!

Further south, the Centralia/Chehalis area always has a lot of "hobby farm" properties on acreage with decent houses for reasonable prices -- check Craigslist to start.

You can search the flood plain maps of the area so you know what to avoid.

I used to think you couldn't do solar in western Washington until a friend went through this company to do so successfully. (Neither she nor I have any affiliation with them.)
