    Construction on 38th has been a pain recently. Street closed often, crew directing people to “go around” despite it being the only way into the garage. Otherwise everything continues to be great! Annalisa and co. are incredible staff and deserve some love (or compensation ;))

    4/5 Anonymous on May 22, 2022

    Dog-friendly. New finishes. Great location, walkability, rooftop views, and particularly the staff -- in particular, Annalisa is always friendly and accommodating. Recently she jumped through MANY hoops to rearrange our lease. Phenomenal customer service on her part.

Seattle, WA in the news

Renter's guide to Seattle, WA

Seattle is best known for its high-quality coffee and its alternative and grunge music scene. Seattle is about the same size as Cleveland or Milwaukee. Thanks to its revitalization as a center of technology, business, and education, it is very popular among millennials. It has a hip urban center and plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures. It is by far the largest city in the state of Washington. It is a three-hour drive from Portland and a two‐and‐a‐half-hour drive from Vancouver without traffic. During summer, the average temperature is 66ºF and the city has a dry and sunny climate with not too hot temperatures. In winter, the average temperature is 47ºF; it is particularly wet and cool with the most frequent rainfall of any major city. Autumn and spring are also wet and cloudy.

Tips for renting in Seattle, WA

If you’re looking to move to Seattle from Portland, you will notice that people are more obsessed with education—there are dozens of universities here. In Seattle, landlords are required to give a minimum of 30 days’ notice of the termination of a year-to-year lease contract. A month-to-month agreement continues until either the landlord or tenant gives the other a written notice at least 20 days before the end of the rental period. Tenants come under the Washington State Residential Landlord-Tenant Act, which is although very similar to Portland’s current legislation, there are some important differences. For example, with a month-to-month rental agreement, either you or your landlord can end the agreement with a 30-day written notice in Seattle. In Portland, however, tenants are required to give a 90-day notice for no-cause evictions—the landlord does not have to tell you the reason for the 90-day notice, yet the reason must be a lawful one.

Living in Seattle, WA

Like living in any major city, living in Seattle comes with a number of pros and cons. The inhabitants of Seattle are, for the most part, very open-minded and into expressions of art such as music, painting, glassblowing, theater, etc. It has a very active nightlife and the best restaurants are always packed with the freshest seafood. Another major advantage is that Seattle has no income tax, only a high sales tax that does not apply to groceries and home purchases. It also attracts a lot of well-educated and young people so you should have no difficulty locating a job or finding a hip social circle. Unfortunately, Seattle is infamous for its bad weather and has terrible traffic. Living in Seattle costs a lot compared to other major cities and requires a high paying job to afford the added expense and high property taxes.
