It was an unusual spot for a Bellevue College campus... directly behind Forest Ridge in Issaquah Highlands.  I imagined hundreds of students driving by single family homes in a rush to get to get to class.  The whole thing seemed like a weird proposition.  Well... at least the planning seemed "off".  Bellevue College is not going to build a campus in Issaquah Highlands.  Apparently no one knows what they plan to do with the land.  I suspect they will sell it to another home developer.  Toll Brothers, Polygon & Pulte Homes are the most prevalent new construction builders in Issaquah right now & I wouldn't be surprised to see one of them purchase the land.

Here's info from the IHCA about what they know... which is very little!

Davis Loop and Wisteria Park are two of the most desirable neighborhoods in Issaquah Highlands.  Many homes in the Davis Loop & Wisteria Park area trade off market by word of mouth.  Burnstead built homes offer a higher finish level than many other areas of Issaquah Highlands and the front elevation homes are classic & attractive.  People who are already living in Issaquah Highlands tend to upgrade to Davis Loop and Wisteria Park.

Recently, two of our sales in Issaquah Highlands came in with low appraisals.  A low appraisal can tun a smooth home sale into an absolute nightmare.  Unless the contract is negotiated upfront and defines what happens in the event of a low appraisal, the buyer and seller have to renegotiate the terms of the contract.  So what is causing low appraisals in Issaquah Highlands?
