If you are up for the mild summers and cold, wet winters of the United States' northwest region, Redmond, Washington, should be on your shortlist of places to visit for a new home. This city of nearly 60,000 people over an expanse of under 17 square miles is known as the Bicycle Capital of the Northwest because of its velodrome and annual race. Purchasing one of these old-American style homes around the median price of $500,000 will get you several bedrooms and bathrooms as well as some sizeable yard space.
