Seattle is one of Western Washington's most popular cities in terms of homes for sale. As of this writing there are currently over 1,800 homes for sale in Seattle, 11% of which are new homes, about 180 homes in total. While Seattle does not currently require that developers building new homes and developments pay a fee in proportion to the public services their development will use. Roads, parks, fire departments, police stations and schools are all services that see increased strain when new communities are built, and Seattle city council members are discussing the possibility of having developers pay a one-time fee to contribute to the maintenance and improvement of such services. 80 cities in the state currently levy this fee, Bellevue is one. There is no set date for a vote on this matter.
