Bellevue is an upscale suburban city that is globally recognized as a great place to live and do business. In recent years, Bellevue has undergone dramatic development in its downtown core, as it has drawn a booming tech-focused economy to its recently built skyscrapers. Located on the east side of Lake Washington, Bellevue is only a 20-minute drive from Downtown Seattle (if you don’t run into traffic). Statistically, Bellevue has a median income of $91,980, much higher than the larger city across the lake (Seattle), and last year’s median home price was $704,954. This price premium represents a high demand from working professionals wanting a short commute to the area’s many companies, as well as families looking to enroll their children in Bellevue’s leading public schools.
