    Crap weather in Seattle. Grumpy people. Microsoft is another Amazon. Think twice what you wish for.

    Daycare is expensive, probably comparable to where you are. If you are settled with kids, the Eastside is better, there aren't really any shitty schools.

    If you are single and want the nightlife, Seattle is better.

    Buy a 4000 sqft house there, while you can buy a 1009 sqft house at palo alto.

  • Considering the same. Rents seem to be FAR better near Redmond, especially for what you get. I can’t speak to the other two unfortunately.
