Imagine buying a brand new home in Issaquah for $89,000.
It is a price from a bygone era. Now, however, that same figure is the minimum bid for five new condominiums in the Issaquah Highlands that builder D.R. Horton will auction Dec. 7.
There are 18 units available in total, all in the Ashford condominiums at the Vista Park complex on 10th Avenue Northeast and Northeast High Street. Depending on size, starting bids for the others range from $99,000 to $129,000. At the $89,000 end, you get 580 square feet; for $129,000, you can stretch out in 1,059 square feet. Read more
