People who buy homes in the suburbs save more than $11,000 a year over people who buy in Seattle. Good luck finding a home though.
That’s the summary of two new reports released Monday on housing in the Puget Sound area.
The first report found that families spend $54,668 a year on housing and child care who buy their homes in Seattle.
That compares with $43,292 a year for people who live in the surrounding suburbs, according to the report from real estate company Zillow and Care.com, an online company that specializes in finding and managing family care.
