Own an Orcas Museum; Wallingford's Cheapest Homes

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.

SAN JUANS -- Sure, buying a home on Orcas Island is enticing enough, but what if someone threw in a museum to boot? For $1.55M, you not only get this quirky 2-BR house but you also get the Lambiel Museum next door, complete with a drawbridge and dragon. Curbed has the photos to prove it.

LEAST EXPENSIVE -- Wallingford is full of two things. New condos and remodeled craftsman homes from the early part of the 20th century. You'll find both here on Curbed's list of ten least expensive places currently for sale in the North Seattle neighborhood. Get in now as the prices keep rising around here.

DATA PROCESSING -- A new study by the Martin Prosperity Institute determined that it takes an average Seattle household around five years of saving in order to buy a home around town. That sounds rough but don't tell that to single people, who need to save up for nine years in order to do the same. Check out the stats and study results this-a-way.
