Despite crime fears, home buyers look to South King County
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. -- A 19-year-old shot in Federal Way. A deadly shooting in Burien. Two suspects on the loose after a shooting in Rainier Valley. Shootings Tuesday and Wednesday sent law enforcement in South King County scrambling, and had homeowners drawing their blinds. But despite a reported year-to-year uptick in killings, South King County home prices in the area continue to rise, and the home market is hotter than ever.
