Some of the most affordable real estate in Auburn, is surprisingly right in downtown Auburn. The home listings in this area are typically smaller single family homes, or they are condos and townhomes. There are plenty of great things to enjoy in downtown Auburn, and there are still great views the majestic Mount Rainier not far from here. Downtown can be described as having many historic buildings with a classic ‘USA’ appearance. There are also several Craftsman style houses from the 1920s in this friendly area.
