Housing

Moving to Seattle, where do you recommend to rent?

I am going to join Amazon and looking to rent a 3br single family house. I have a toddler who enjoys playing in the backyard.

Amazon commuter service has buses from south (Renton), east and north (Lynwood). I am thinking to rent in a suburb, drive to park’nRide and take the commuter bus. Where do you recommend me to rent a house?

I am leaning towards Lynwood because of better rental price and less traffic.

      This is the right answer. Much closer in, great neighborhood, is actually in seattle and is just kinda cool. Avoid delridge though.

      No. But I suppose if you wanted to go to Redmond ;-)

    West Seattle is awesome. Traffic generally isn't too bad compared to Lynwood and you're closer in to start with.

    If you want a 3br then go for West Seattle

    West Seattle, specifically Delridge, White Center or Burien

    lynnwood's pretty nice , I'd recommend shoreline too near aurora transit center and possibly cheaper than lynnwood

    Newcastle. Good neighbors and close to eastgate P&R although I am not sure how many houses are available for rent here..

    Lynwood is great but sometimes feels a little bit far from everywhere.. like if you plan on going Seattle, Bellevue, SeaTac, Kirkland, etc even in non working days. Also, traffic is pretty bad usuaully.

    I 100% prefer Lynwood or Mountlake Terrace over anywhere South of Seattle. I was in Mountlake Terrace for a couple years (just south of Lynwood) and loved it. Plus you have close access to Kingston ferry if you want to hang out on the Olympic Peninsula (which is an incredible place).

    I’m gonna say go for Lynwood, but when your kid is ready to go to school go to Bellevue/Redmond

    It rains so much, that a backyard/patio etc is pretty much useless.

    Having said that, probably Lynnwood. But that commute will kill you.

    Lynnwood. Lower crime rate, better asian food, better traffic. Also look into Mill Creek if you want quiet & peaceful neighborhood

      Commuter bused are always full theses days no one can get on them and rent in Seattle is ridiculous. Hope you are willing to pay out the ass to live here. My friend just got a two bedroom condo he is renting for 4300 a month. Nightmare.

      I am looking for Seattle suburban and rent price is reasonable (under 3000).

      I've found similar options. If you're living in the city center, sure, 4k sounds about right.

      seattle rent do go that crazy if you go to suburbs. Also renting houses in the northern suburbs is cheaper than condos/apartments

    Key detail missing: budget. There are significantly different neighborhoods and school districts available.
