The seaport city of Seattle draws in visitors with its iconic tourist attractions like the Space Needle and downtown's Park Place Market, but Washington's largest city – known for being home to major businesses such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Boeing – also lures in folks who want to stay beyond a short trip.
Seattle's famous music scene, vast year-round outdoor activities (both on land and by sea), and diverse culture provide countless opportunities for tourists and residents alike to explore.
For those looking to make a move to the area of more than 4 million people in the near future, there are currently more than 2,300 homes actively listed for sale in the city with a median listing price of around $750,000, according to data from Realtor.com.
Here's what you can get in Seattle with a $1 million budget:
