The scenic city of Tacoma, Washington, is home to approximately 202,700 residents. Located on Puget Sound, Tacoma is the third largest city in the state of Washington and the second largest city in the Puget Sound area. The only larger city in the area, Seattle, is only about 30 miles away. Tacoma earned its nickname, "City of Destiny," when the Northern Pacific Railroad chose Tacoma to be its western terminus.
Tacoma has many neighborhoods, each with its own characteristics. To help you decide which Tacoma neighborhood is the right one, it is a great idea to find a Realtor. Whether you already live in Tacoma or are relocating to the area, a real estate agent can provide you with endless information about the different areas of the city and the current real estate market. The Tacoma-Pierce County Association of Realtors can connect you with a Realtor who will understand your home buying needs. You can also find a VAMortgageCenter preferred Realtor by browsing through our database. We have worked with all of the real estate agents in our database, and they have earned our seal of approval.
Another step to take before you begin looking at MLS listings is to get pre-approved for your VA Home Loan. Getting pre-approved is a very simple process that can save you a lot of time in the long run. By being pre-approved before you start looking at homes for sale in Tacoma, won't waste any time researching or touring homes that are not in your price range.
Tacoma has many great attractions ranging from the modern to the rustic. The Tacoma Museum of Glass showcases a brilliant collection of contemporary glass and artwork. The museum also hosts auctions, glassblowing performances, and more. For those looking to enjoy Tacoma's natural beauty, a visit to Point Defiance Park is a must. The picturesque park, which covers over 7,000 acres, has wooded trails, manicured gardens, a zoo, and an aquarium. Plus, whenever you feel like going on a day trip, all the sights and sounds of Seattle are located just a short drive away!
