Mobile Homes in King County Are Considered Real Property in Washington State and Many of Them Are For Sale

King County. It has nearly twice the land area of the state of Rhode Island and more than twice as many people. It’s a region crammed full of high-tech industries, high housing costs, and fortunately for residents, one of the highest minimum wages in the country. Buying a home in this county can be challenging though—that’s undeniable. But a viable solution for many homebuyers is to look toward purchasing a King County mobile home.

Prices aren’t the only thing this county puts on high. Let us not forget its unparalleled views of Mount Rainier, unprecedented access to the Puget Sound (Salish Sea), and its unencumbered appreciation of its arts, culture, cuisine, and people.

All of these are very fine reasons to make King County your home. Are you ready to turn the key?

How King County Came to Be

The Lushootseed-speaking Indigenous peoples of the Duwamish Tribe were the original inhabitants of what is now called King County. When the Denny Party of settlers first landed their schooner, Exact, at Alki Point in 1851, they arrived at a village of over a thousand Indigenous peoples and dozens of Hudson’s Bay Company employees.

Fortunately for these early pioneers, the Duwamish people were kind and helped them survive their first winter in a new territory. The Duwamish illustrated how to subsist in this new region, and helped the Party create dwellings.

By the next year, on December 22, 1852, King County was created as part of the Oregon Territory. Washington Territory was formed a mere three months later, and King County then became an official part of that newly-designated area.

King County Namesake

King County Namesake

King County Courthouse, Seattle, 1927

The new county was named for William Rufus Devane King, the just-elected Vice President of the United States, who died in office shortly thereafter, and never served.

The county name stuck though, much to the chagrin of its residents whose values didn’t align with King’s. He was a slave-holder who, according to the King County City Council, “earned income and maintained his lifestyle by oppressing and exploiting other human beings.”

The new Washington Territory did not uphold the Oregon Territory’s ban on Black settlers, and for the next more than 100 years, King County residents wondered why their county’s namesake should be in honor of such a blighted and troubled individual?

All of that changed in 1986 when King County redesigned its eponym and logo. Robust community support and determined King County Council Member, Ron Sims shifted the meaning of the name to honor Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. whose, according to the Council, “contributions are well-documented and celebrated by millions throughout the nation and the world, and embody attributes for which the citizens of King County can be proud and claim as their own.”

Mobile and manufactured homes have come a long way since their inception. Like most things for sale, there are good ones, and there are bad ones, with the old adage “you get what you pay for” ringing true here.

Mobile and manufactured homes differ from traditional stick-built housing in that they are crafted off-site, and then transported to their location.

Generally less expensive than many of their single-dwelling counterparts, they are an excellent solution for those looking to escape apartment living, but not yet ready to pay the premium prices single-family homes and condos command.

Mobile homes in King County offer solutions for a county experiencing a housing shortage, and since they are built off-site on an assembly line, it’s a housing solution that won't take upwards of a year to build.
