Bill Barrow & Chris Miller: Helping buyers find their homes on Bainbridge Island for over 25 years.

Bainbridge Island is a great place to live, work, and play.  Conveniently located between downtown Seattle and the Olympic National Park, it is a Mecca for people driven to live in a rural suburban environment that has easy access to both urban amenities and wilderness experiences. Buy a home on Bainbridge Island and get the best of both worlds!

A 35-minute ferry ride makes downtown Seattle very accessible as a pedestrian, or for a car and driver.  For commuters, it is a relaxing way to get to and from work and school.  For others, it is the gateway to cosmopolitan venues for shopping, art, music, and sporting events along with some of the nation’s top medical facilities.  When people compare Seattle suburbs to live in, like Bellevue, Mercer Island, Kirkland, Normandy Park, Redmond, Sammamish, Edmonds, Everett, Mukilteo, Mill Creek, Madison Park and Laurelhurst, many choose Bainbridge Island over the typical suburbia.

The island is roughly 12 miles long by 6 miles wide with a population base of about 23,000 people.  It is connected to the mainland Kitsap Peninsula by a bridge at the north end.  Nearby cities and towns include Poulsbo, Kingston, Silverdale, Suquamish, and Indianola.  It is home to many successful artists and entrepreneurs, both active and retired, as well as simple farmers and artisans plying their trades.  Top notch schools, (both public and private), an expansive Metropolitan Parks and Recreation District, an active Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Association, as well as an abundance of service and special interest clubs, make this a great place to live, work, and play.

An easy rule of thumb is for every .5% (1/2 percent) increase your purchasing power goes down by 4-5% (percentage smaller for lower amounts but keep it simple, right?).
