    Driving to work would be a bad idea. But having a car for personal use is great.

    Walk. There’s a lot of apartments that are walking distance.

    I had that same car question before I moved too. I ended up bringing it to use on weekends. It’s worth it if your car is already paid off and you like going hiking or weekend trips. I’m not a fan of public transport so having my own personal space and freedom to drive wherever was worth the cost.

    Keep in mind if you do decide to live within walking distance that the apartment parking fee is usually around $150-$300 a month.

      Do you have any specific apartments you’ve been to that look decent? I know there are plenty online and with fancy websites so I’m kinda drowning in choice. I can’t really take a visit to Seattle so I need to rely on other sources of info. I would love to walk to work, and don’t mind paying for parking, seen rates at $225, I do think it’s kinda high but I’d pay if I have to

      It depends on what you’re looking for in an apartment. If you have pets or gym preferences. I went to a lot of the higher end luxury ones and thought they were tiny for the price but the views were stunning.

    For the walkers/bikers, where do you live? Any good apartments you can recommend?

      Yeah that's 3rd Ave and beyond. Anything between 6th and 4th is pretty good.

      I did some random check and found that rental in SLU/downtown is pretty expensive while the price of an 2b apartment is “cheap” compared to rental. Why ppl want to rent instead of buy?

      I can find many below 1 mil. Paying mortgage vs paying rent

      Buying means you have more fees like HOA, property taxes, repairs and maintenance. It’s not fair to compare a mortgage with a rental

    For those drivers, how much do you pay for parking at the office?

      It doesn’t matter, you’re likely to be on a waitlist for parking for a couple of months.
