Seattle Apartments for Rent

Seattle

Seattle is home to over 650,000 people and is a city full of contrasts. It is a technology hotspot, a great place for music, and it is located only a stone’s throw away from some of the best views and landscapes in the country. It is a great place for single people and families alike, and there is a wide variety of real estate options available. There is so much to do and see in Seattle that you are sure to find some things you love. Whether you love hiking, live music, great food, or a wide variety of other things, Seattle has you covered. If you are interested in a place that is forward thinking and tech-forward and features a great cultural scene, while still being great for families, give Seattle a look.
Atmosphere

As mentioned in the introduction, Seattle is a city of contrasts. Whereas many cities will have one vibe, atmosphere or feel, this city has many. Because of this fact, you will see a wide range of different people from different backgrounds residing in Seattle. Artists, business people, hipsters, outdoorsy people, and many others can regularly be seen throughout the city.

Seattle is where companies like Microsoft and Amazon were founded, and many other technology companies have begun operating there in recent years. Seattle is also a jazz-music hub and the birthplace of grunge music, so the live music scene there is huge as well. Also, the city is full of great parks, schools, and a hilly landscape that is great for adventure. As you can see, it is a city with multiple different vibes throughout it.

For a few years now, people have become privy to the many good things about Seattle. As a result, Seattle consistently ranks as one of the fastest growing cities in all of the USA. While the weather is quite rainy and gloomy for much of the year, even that isn’t enough to keep the people away who love the varying atmospheres that Seattle presents.

History

The first Europeans to appear in the area that would later become Seattle arrived in the late 1700s. The name Seattle first appeared in 1853 when the first plats for the village were made and filed. The logging industry and other natural resource industries were the main industries in Seattle, which led to a boom-and-bust economy. However, as technology and other industries made their way into Seattle, the economy became more stable, and this has continued to this day, and makes Seattle a popular place to live.

However, as the city got more popular over the last few years, this has led to rising rents. Today, the average rent for an apartment in Seattle hovers around $2100. Rent being higher or lower will depend on factors such as safety, proximity to schools, bars and restaurants, as well as commute time.

With renters making up more than 50% of the population in Seattle, there are many options for those who wish to rent in Seattle. There are neighborhoods with large, single family homes and also neighborhoods full of high rise apartments and modern townhouses/condos. There are neighborhoods located close to shopping and bars, and others close to parks and schools. Some are closer to the busy downtown area, while others are located near picturesque views and nature. Each of these neighborhoods has their fair share of both modern and traditional architectural options, and where you choose to rent will depend on your tastes in apartments and homes, and what you want to be situated by.

Getting Around

Seattle has convenient public transit in the form of buses, a light rail, and a commuter rail. These public transit options have a number of stops throughout the city and that makes it a great option for getting around if you don’t’ have a vehicle. Despite the plentiful and helpful public transportation options in Seattle, driving remains a popular way to get around. About 50% of residents drive to work every day and it is also a popular way of getting around in general. The roads can be quite congested and traffic jams can regularly occur, but having a car is still a good idea.

If neither of these options appeals to you, the city is one of the most walkable in the entire country. It is a very dense city, so walking is convenient if you are traveling a short distance. Also, the number of parks and differing types of architecture located throughout the city also make taking a walk quite enjoyable.
