Washington State is so divine, it even has its own Mount Olympus. When you buy Washington Land for sale, you’re buying life at the top.
Washington State is quite possibly the most geographically and geologically diverse of the fifty states, a land of striking contrasts even in the things – like rainfall – the Evergreen State is most famous for. In the west, the temperate rainforests growing on the Olympic peninsula’s slopes have the highest precipitation rates in the continental United States, 160 inches of rain per year. But the arid steppe lands of the Cascades’ eastern rainshadow average less than six.
What’s in Washington? You’d get a shorter answer if you asked, “What’s not in Washington?” From the serene seascapes of the San Juan island archipelago to the golden grain fields of the Palouse, from the broad Columbia River to Puget Sound’s salt flats, from Mt St. Helen’s volcanic crater to the glacier-bound heights of Mt Ranier, Washington State’s got it all – even an international border! There are the apple orchards in Yakima and the vinyard-covered hillsides in the Lake Chelan area; coulees in the Columbia plateau – dry canyons with steep walls, carved from ancient lava, and even a farwest tributary of the Rocky Mountains where gold, silver, copper and lead are still mined today.
And then there’s Seattle. Nearly 60% of the Evergreen State’s population lives in the greater Seattle metropolitan area – a designation that includes the cities of Tacoma, Bellvue and sometimes even the state capitol, Olympia. Seattle is America’s closest port to Asia with a full three-day edge over California. Washington State has long had economic ties with Asia, and in the last decade, trade and cultural connections between the two have grown even tighter. In the future, they will grow closer still.
The Emerald City is also famous as America’s center of café culture – just about every block has its own coffee house or drive-thru latte stand. No surprise that Starbucks is headquartered here! On the cultural end of things, Seattle was the birthplace of legendary guitarman Jimi Hendrix and iconic “grunge” rock bands Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.
Washington State’s other big city is Spokane, on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains, long a popular site for companies looking to relocate closer to abundant hydroelectric power, less expensive raw materials and the railroads that move finished goods to Canada and the cities of the east.
Washington has a diverse economic climate. Logging is still an important industry in the southwestern forests, ranching in the eastern basins and foothills. Central Washington and the Yakima Valley have long been famous for agriculture, while the Columbia River region is noted for its wine industry. For several generations the fortunes of Seattle seemed to rise and fall with those of Boeing and the aerospace industry. Then came Microsoft, transforming Seattle from a one-industry tech town to a world hub for software and technology. The rise of the Pacific Rim and Asian trade has only made things better. Washington has been a great place to work and to raise families. And Washington remains a place where dreams are affordable within the means of those who decide to call it home.
Like much of the West Coast, the cities of western Washington have been impacted by falling housing prices. While Washington has suffered less than its neighbors in the recent recession (in great part due to the continued strength of Asian trade), a weak economy in much of America has suppressed inflation in real property prices. Washington Land For Sale may prove to be the best investment on the market. Washington’s economy will return to sustained growth sooner than other West Coast states, and technology and international trade will provide the engine for that prosperity. Real property prices in Washington will move up with each quarter as recessionary trends abate. And investment in Washington Land for sale is an equity stake growth.
