Redmond is home to industry giants like Microsoft and Nintendo. The city is east of Seattle on the northern end of Lake Sammamish. Since the opening of the SR-520 floating bridge in 1963, Redmond's location has helped it to flourish as a Seattle suburb. The beautiful area appeals to commuters and residents alike.
It is respected for its quality public schools, plentiful parks, and support for arts and culture, like The Concerts at Marymoor and Eastside Symphony.The convenience of living in Redmond combined with the hot housing market makes it attractive to hire Redmond remodelers rather than shop and compete with others in a housing market that's currently geared towards sellers.
With a median home value of over $850,000, renovating or remodeling tends to be the more-attractive option in Redmond than relocating.
Housing prices will likely continue to increase with the completion of the planned East Link Extension light-rail transit system, which will provide a highly desirable alternative to heavy commute traffic.
Although Redmond’s building department, the Development Services Center (DSC), has friendly staff and an online permitting system, it can be challenging for applicants who aren't familiar with their processes. They require appointments to be set up with permit technicians in advance. Over-the-counter permits are difficult to obtain, and their strictly enforced rules and regulations can be difficult to interpret and follow.
