Spokane Valley, Live Work Play
Many of my clients love living in the Spokane Valley because it is so much more accessible to various points of Spokane, as the city grows and spreads we find that the commute to work, schools, shopping etc. plays a determinate role in where people choose to live. It’s quite easy to commute a short 1-2 miles to the interstate whether you live in Northwood, or the Dishman Hills. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC3-_R_R-ag&index=4&list=PLdjcuK4yEI_DPku9KldMMzX7H-bJS2sCm
One of the popular older established areas is called Millwood and it’s a straight commute headed south to the interstate. Filled with varied ages of housing but initially established around the old paper mill. The main street still has a classic style that pulls you back to the 50’s and leaves images of community. The Spokane River flows right through this part of town and is very accessible for fishing, kayaking, etc.
There are so many communities established, and budding ones as well. Because this area was once home to farms and rural living there is more land to be developed and currently we are seeing multiple opportunities for new construction homes in the area.

Suburbs and communities
One of the other fun things about Spokane Valley is the multitude of suburban lifestyles, schools and functionality that co-exist. Whether you live in the Dishman Hills, Painted Canyon, Barker Rd, Millwood or Head toward Otis Orchards. You will develop a sense of community within your neighborhood due to strategic planning and development of grocery stores, schools, recreation, banks etc.
No matter what your lifestyle, familial status etc. there is something for everyone. Spokane County Fairgrounds and Expo center offers a myriad of events all year long with craft shows, art walks, Spokane Indians Baseball Games, Bike and Wine Tours at Arbor Crest, Jazz Festivals, Water Parks, Outdoor adventures that are subtle and easy, to a bit more arduous depending on your tastes. Selling or Buying Homes in Spokane Valley really comes down to where you might be working and affordability, some areas I believe are more affordable than others. For instance, Liberty Lake is the big hot spot with my millenial buyers and also for my mid stage home owners. These mid stage home owners are typically people who may be in midstream of raising families and or transitioning from smaller two person bungalows. Currently the demand is high but the options are low for affordable under 200k new homes in Spokane Valley. There are some nice Condo options I have sold and been involved with as well. I have seen a trend for apartment conversions, the apartments were converted to condos. There have been some very nice rehabilitation on those in a few areas. The other probably most BOLD aspect of living in the valley is the proximity to Idaho. We love Lake Coeur d Alene and so being able to hook up your boat, camper, etc and easily head to the lake is another great reason to love the Valley area.
