What County is Bellevue in?

If you’re new to the area or looking to move to Bellevue, you might be wondering, “What county is Bellevue in?”

Bellevue is in King County, WA.

The red outline in the map above shows the borders of King County. Bellevue, Seattle and Redmond are just a few of the large cities that reside in King County.

King County lies north of Pierce County and south of Snohomish County. It is the most populated county in the state of Washington and one of the top 20 most populated counties in the US.

King County favors young professionals, and that certainly holds true in Bellevue. While Seattle holds the county seat, Bellevue certainly has influence on local politics, especially when it comes to economic impacts on the region.

As of May 2016, housing prices were also considerably more expensive in King County when compared other counties close by. Some of this is influenced by a rush of technology workers to the region, and a recovery in housing prices from the 2007-2008 recession. Read more on housing in Pierce and King counties here.
