1. No. 1 Medina ($845K House)

Copy Link
8015 NE 28th St
Medina, WA 98039

When it originally listed, this 2-BR was asking $900K. Guess even in Medina you have to ball play cause they've come down a little bit. As it is, it's the only listing on the market right now under a million. Gotta say, in any other neighborhood they're probably asking closer to $500-600K.

2. No. 2 D'town Kirkland ($287K Condo)

Copy Link
1113 Kirkland Ave #3
Kirkland, WA 98033

Pretty decent-looking ground-floor two-bedroom condo here that puts you minutes from the downtown sector. They've come down from $295K after 19 days, guess they're used to things moving pretty quick in Downtown Kirkland.

3. No. 3 Laurelhurst ($918K House)

Copy Link
3600 NE 42nd St
Seattle, WA 98105

You can get in to Laurelhurst for under a million...but just barely. This 3-BR, 2-bath home dates back to 1922 but has clearly been renovated more recently. The luxury master suite comes with a great south view, huge walk-in closet and soaking bath. Living here also makes you "Beach Club eligible" whatever that means.

4. No. 4 Mercer Island ($259K Condo)

Copy Link
2933 76th Ave SE
Mercer Island, WA 98040

In between all those massive mansions you'll find plenty of condo buildings on Mercer Island. The current cheapest champ is this 646 square-foot 1-BR. Looks like you get a private deck, fireplace, washer/dryer and storage space. You're also right in Mercer Island Town and close to the main shopping area.

5. No. 5 Windermere ($335K Townhome)

Copy Link
6457 Sand Point Way NE
Seattle, WA 98115

We were surprised to find anything in Windermere under $500K but here we are. To be fair, it's the only thing under $799K so it's not like affordable places are all over the place. At 1,330 square-feet, it's pretty big for a 1-BR. Tall ceilings in the bedroom make a difference.

6. No. 6 Madison Park ($719K Condo)

Copy Link
2330 43rd Ave E #405b
Seattle, WA 98112

Another neighborhood with only one listing under a million. This 2-BR started out asking $739K but chopped $20K off after a little under a month. Pretty nice view from the covered patio and the sunroof in the kitchen brings some light into what would otherwise be a fluorescent space. $722 in monthly HOA dues, FYI.

7. No. 7 Meydenbauer ($685K Condo)

Copy Link
333 101st Ave SE
Bellevue, WA 98004

You're never far from the water in this neighborhood and this $685K condo is one of the few places you can anchor down for less than $1M. Living in a ground floor corner condo has it's advantages here as it's easy access to the kayak launch and swimming pool. There's also a "vegetable bed for residents," which doesn't mean what we thought it meant at first.

8. No. 8 North Bellevue ($235K Condo)

Copy Link
10512 NE 32nd Pl #204
Bellevue, WA 98004

The median home value in North Bellevue is $914K but there's plenty of condo options in the $200-300K range available. We dig the hardwoods choice over carpet and they also pack a modern kitchen into this 777 square-foot space. Don't forget about the Ccmmunity clubhouse w/ indoor/outdoor pool & hot tub. How could you?

9. No. 9 Eastgate ($375K Condo)

Copy Link
3414 161st Court Southeast #18
Bellevue, WA 98008

Another Bellevue neighborhood, Eastgate, the cheapest option here is a 1,286 square-foot 2-BR condo with Lake Sammamish & Cascade views. The breakfast bar differentiates the space a little bit. Great spot for commuters who need I-90 access.

10. No. 10 Montlake ($725K House)

Copy Link
2036 Boyer Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

We top out in this Seattle neighborhood where you only have four available options under $1.1M. This one hit the market at $749K before coming down. The 2,500 sqaure-foot 3-BR is a real Seattle classic with lots of vintage details and built-ins. It does need some work too, though, and we think it might not get this kind of price if it was located in, say, Wallingford.
