Yelm Real Estate
Yelm is located in Thurston County and is bordered by Lacey to the West, and the small town of McKenna to the North. Yelm has grown dramatically over the past 10 years from a sleepy little town to a full service community offering many diverse housing choices. Within a 30 minute commute of Fort Lewis or Olympia, Yelm is now a popular destination for commuters looking for reasonable home prices.
Yelm is home to most major services including a super walmart, several grocery stores, movie theater and ample outdoor recreation activities. Many nearby lakes are stocked with fish and offer anglers an opportunity to catch limits of coveted rainbow trout. Surrounding private forest land is accessible for hiking and hunting opportunities for pheasant, wild turkey, waterfowl, elk, deer and bear.
One of my favorite features of the Yelm area is the abundant oak trees and rolling prairies. While many parts of Western Washington are densely covered with underbrush, large evergreens and maples, Yelm is unique in it's natural vegetation.
Yelm Homes for Sale
Yelm offers homes for sale to fit nearly every need. While rural homes on acreage are still widely available at good prices, there is now ample opportunity to purchase new construction homes in quiet neighborhoods as well. Large local builders such as Quadrant and Soundbuilt homes have provided many choices for those looking for a nice home on a modest lot. With many homes priced in the low to mid $200's Yelm homes are both affordable and in good demand.
