Housing

Issaquah offers a picturesque setting, good schools, low crime rates and a small-town character that make it a desirable place for many to call home.

We have grown from predominately single-family bedroom community to one that offers a variety of housing types, amenities, educational, and other services that contribute to a livable community. Innovative master planned communities have won awards for green building and community building. The City’s Green Building program continues to support sustainability through incentives.

We strive for housing options that meet all stages of life and across the income spectrum.  For more information and to learn more about how we are planning to accommodate growth while maintaining what makes Issaquah amazing, check out the City’s Strategic Plan, Housing Work Plan or 2018 Housing Report Card.
