I'm not at all sure they can buy a townhome, anywhere near Kent, without taking on debt.
I saw quite a few listings for units (not sure if they were condos or townhomes, or some of both--when I checked some of those locations earlier today, that were in the OP's range.

She mentioned "kids", so they'll likely need a 3bd/2ba. She said she hopes to get $200,000.

That's what I"m saying; I saw quite a few listings for 3/2 townhomes and condos in some of the cities suggested, that are within the OP's budget. As I posted earlier; the OP will have to decide, if it's worth it or not to downsize her expectations, in order to move to western WA.

Zillow shows no 3/1.5 or larger townhomes for <$200k in Pierce County. There are two condos (in Lakewood) and 29 manufactured homes (in Roy, Graham, Buckley, Sumner, Spanaway, Puyallup, etc.) within that budget.

I'm not sure why you're talking about Pierce County. I found listings for condos and townhomes within the OP's range in King Co. I'm not going to re-research that, but as I recall, Auburn was one location that had options within the OP's budget. But we don't know if the OP is interesting in considering condos or townhomes, anyway.
