It’s just past Redmond Town Center where 520 turns into Avondale RD NE. Microsoft is just up the hill.

Redmond’s average list price is $953,011. The median list price is not much lower, at $800,000. Measure by dollars per square feet and you’re only at $274, but homes here are big. Bedrooms average four per house. A much smaller home next door sold for $305,000 one year ago.
