There are some very good deals going on homes in Anacortes. The market got more depressed here than some places. The County Assessor's estimate on our place is down 35% this year compared to three years ago. It's only showing a value improvement of about 45% from when we bought it 12 years ago.
A 3600 sq.ft. home on the Skyline marina waterfront a couple of blocks from us was a spec build on a $430,000 lot which already had a 40' dock. Initially, the builder priced it at $1.44 million. It sold after being empty for four years for $575K.
The Skagit County Assessor's office has a website where you can see sales history, current assessment, etc. It's at http:\\skagitcounty.net/common/asp/default.asp?
