Seattle Housing Report Leak; Sedro Woolley Castle Sold

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

ZONING OUT -- Tuesday, The Seattle Times got their hands on a leaked draft of Mayor Ed Murray's Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda report. Tucked inside were recommendations that could change the state of Seattle living, some say for better, others for worse. Curbed breaks down everything you need to know so you're prepared when someone tells you the sky is falling.

SOLD STUFF -- Turns out medieval protection doesn't pay what it used to. Once asking $1.4M back in 2013, this Sedro Woolley "castle" just sold for $782K. There's no moat but there is a waterfall, salmon-stocked creek and natural swimming pool nearby. The property also has a rare state permit for private hydroelectric power, which could allow you to live "off the grid," if that's your thing.

BY THE NUMBERS -- Among the 20 most-populous U.S. counties, King County is the whitest of them all. The numbers say that King is 62.4 percent non-Hispanic white and the current white population of 1.3 million is the largest it has ever been. However, the fastest-growing racial population of King County since 2010 is Asian, which has increased by roughly 51,000 people.
