Apartment rentals in downtown Seattle

Dec 5, 2019 40 Comments

Will be joining OCI in Seattle next month and planning to live near to the office area. Looking for a good community that has inclusive car parking and fairly reasonable 1 bed apartment for two people. Appreciate your help.

Edit:
Any recommendations on cheaper options outside of downtown Seattle would be much appreciated as well.
Looking for options between downtown Seattle and Bothell.

Current TC: 120K

      Not sure actually, I haven't checked Beacon Hill. I was just thinking of neighborhoods off the top of my head where rent might be cheaper. Beacon Hill is blowing up though, so 1600 still might be low.

      @OP you and your significant other nee to get in the 1900-2300 range to find something decent in the city. Commuting 1 hour to work in Seattle sucks. You'll hate your life.

      I live in Equity apartments (Cascade).

      Good building but overpriced, trash noise in the alley is awful and parking is $225/mo.

      If you live here dont live by the alley. Having a/c is nice

      i have lived in equity for many years. they're pretty professional and good at fixing issues. i left because it's too expensive imo, but they are priced well for techies

    Look at condos for rent by owners, they usually include all utilities and car parking. I think you can get 1Bed 1 bath for $1600. Good Luck

    Look near Columbia city and commute with light rail.

      LOL Columbia City has like a 2x2 block radius which is nice. The rest of the Rainier Valley area is a sh*thole.

    Car parking is usually not included in downtown apartments. You can get it separately, expect to pay ~200 a month for parking.

    Checkout hotpads.com for apartments.

  • What’s your OCI tc? I heard parking at the building is 300+ per month

      OP
      OCI TC is around ~190K. That parking amount looks very expensive. Not sure if car commute would be feasible any way.

    Smaller neighborhoods like Eastlake and Westlake usually have decently priced apartments on Zillow/Craigslist every few weeks. My wife and I just moved out of an apartment in Eastlake that was around $1700(+$100 utilities) a month, and there were places around us going for around the same price. You just have to be willing to be a bit patient trying to look for places

    Edit: Let me know if you want the listing for our old apartment, looks like our old apartment is still available

    I pay $2300 + $225 for parking for an urban 1bdrm.

    For your budget look at queen anne, ballard or fremont
