Seattle’s Maple Leaf Neighborhood One of the Country’s Hottest!

Online real estate company, Redfin, has recently identified North Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighborhood as one of the top 10 hottest and up and coming neighborhoods in the country. The other neighborhoods were located in California with the exception of Maple Leaf and Logan Square in Chicago. The rankings were based on number of homes for sale, sales volume, home prices, and sales-to-list price ratios.

seattle-mapleMaple Leaf is located in North Seattle between Interstate 5 and Lake City Way, Northgate Way and 80th Street. Maple Leaf is a community on the hilltop – the third highest in Seattle, at 466 feet, according to the city Department of Transportation. The summit is Northeast 92nd Street and Roosevelt Way Northeast, but the most visible landmark – seen from much of Seattle – is the Maple Leaf water tower. It boasts a thriving business district, a plethora of restaurants and coffee houses, a strong community council, an amazing number of dog walkers and, overhead, a flock of gaudy, and very loud, feral scarlet-fronted parakeets.
