Yakima County Enjoys Diverse Affordable Housing Options
The Yakima Valley offers extensive housing options. Residents can find horse ranches, historic homes, downtown condos, resort communities, and wide ranging neighborhoods to fulfill their unique needs and aspirations.
Yakima County is fortunate have one of the more favorable residential real estate markets in the nation. Because of the region’s relatively resilient stable economy, area residents and real estate investors have experienced slower yet positive growth in real estate values. Zillow ranked Yakima County 5th in the nation for home appreciation between 2007-2011. More recently Business Insider, an online publications for financial, media, technical, and related news, picked Yakima as one of their top 15 housing markets in the country over the next five years.
Rental housing also comes in varied shapes and sizes. People can find houses, apartments, condos, assisted living communities and other rental options in cities and neighborhoods throughout Yakima County.
