Every January is the time to download the year’s waterfront sales results from the MLS. From Olympia to Port Ludlow, 2019 was a busy year for the Olympic Peninsula. The download took some time. As is my practice, I divide the coast up into 16 distinct waterfront markets and paste the data from each beach into a spreadsheet where I graph the results.

This year, the average sales price of Gig Harbor was within 10% of the historically highest priced waterfront real estate on the Peninsula – Bainbridge Island. Harstine Island remained the best value while Olympia creeps towards seven figures. It’s getting expensive out there but you can still find bargains. Go to and see this year’s results.
