Seattle Apartments for Rent

Seattle is a gem of a major city that happens to be nestled in the northwestern corner of the United States, just south of Vancouver, Canada. The population of Seattle is made up of many people who have come to relocate to the city. Seattle is home to some of the most breathtaking natural beauty and amazing scenery. Surrounded on two sides by both mountains and water, the city enjoys a close proximity to nature - this is one of the biggest draws for those who relocate to Seattle. Although it boasts higher wages than average in the US, it also happens to be one of the most expensive cities. The increasing presence of tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft and others, attracts many young and wealthy professionals, which results in higher rents around the city. When looking for an apartment to rent in Seattle, some of the more expensive areas include Belltown (located downtown) and Lower Queen Anne. Both areas have some of the highest rent, around $1,900 and up. Additionally West Seattle is an up-and-coming neighborhood that is well suited for families, with more moderate prices around $1,600 - $1,700 per month, although families typically live outside the center among highly regarded Seattle public schools. Cheap apartments in Seattle can be found around Columbia city and Rainier Valley, which go for closer to $1,200 per month.

Furnished & Serviced Apartments in Seattle

Furnished apartments in Seattle are a great alternative for those that live in another city or metro area, but find themselves spending longer periods of time here. Furnished apartments, also known as Serviced apartments, in Seattle, offer an upscale accommodation experience that often includes more amenities and services than those offered by typical apartments. For example, furnished apartments often come with a full kitchen with dining utensils, including a dishwasher, and sometimes even a washing machine and dryer. It’s the extra services like these that cause furnished apartments to be more expensive than their unfurnished counterpart, going for closer to $2,000 per month on the low end, and going higher than $2,800. Even though the prices in these accommodations can be quite high, guests typically don’t stay more than a couple months. Serviced apartments in Seattle can mostly be found directly downtown or close to the city center - there are not many located outside of the city.
