13 neighborhoods in Seattle's King County rank among the 30 most competitive housing markets in the United States. Map via Visit Seattle.
The Seattle-area housing market was bananas in 2015. You don't need any reminders on that, especially if you were one of those out there pounding the pavement, getting into bidding wars and pulling out all the stops to try and afford a house around town. But you might not realize just how insane the housing market was in Seattle, Redmond, Bellevue and elsewhere in 2015 until you see Redfin's list of the 30 most competitive neighborhoods in the U.S. this past year and realize King County is home to 13 of them. In fact, the entire list is concentrated in just four cities: Boston, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle.
