This property is a perfect example of an affordable home filled with extras that add personality and the feel of a much higher priced home.

From the outside, the curb appeal alone puts the house in a category of its own. Multiple finishing materials frame the entries and a picture window out front allows plenty of natural light to fill the living spaces inside.

Upon entering, a stately staircase separates the foyer from the kitchen and dining areas, providing the best combination of an open concept layout which also includes a gas fireplace. The kitchen is showcased by stainless steel appliances and a modern back splash with just the right amount of neutral coloring. A peninsula island adds extra seating for entertaining purposes.

Upstairs, an owner’s suite with a walk-in closet awaits, while the other bedrooms offer custom window seats. The private backyard is fully fenced and the house is secured by an alarm system. All of these bonus elements add up to one bargain of a home price less than 10 miles from Joint Base Lewis-McChord

2) Spanaway, Washington 

*This home is no longer listed. 


Normally, it’s difficult to find a move-in ready home at this price point, but this property has the benefits of neutral paint and hardwood floors, and yet has the custom details buyers desire, such as coffered ceilings, brick accents, and wood wrapped windows. It’s the perfect combination of ease and comfort.

Adding to the list of ready-to-buy features is the five-piece master bathroom complete with tile back splash. There’s no need to update the kitchen appliances either, because they already don the stainless steel finish that is in high demand.

A more than spacious, fully fenced backyard awaits to be used for more than one comfortable Pacific Northwest season. For extra storage, a shed is included with the purchase. The owner offers help with the closing costs if the sale doesn’t necessitate a real estate agent.
