There are many reasons to choose to live or move to Seattle. You may be moving to Seattle to work for one of the tech giants such as Amazon or Microsoft, attend some of the best universities in the nation, or to enjoy the abundance of parks, mountains and trails around the city. Seattle is a great place to live and there are high paying jobs, yet it’s one of the most expensive cities to live in where the main cost is rent. To make living in Seattle more viable, you may want to find a room for rent and share housing with a roommate.
Finding the perfect place can seem elusive and difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. No matter if you’re looking for your new best friend, someone to help pay the bills, we can help you find the perfect room + roommate.
Seattle is known for high rent prices, where the average one bedroom apartment is $1,500 and a two bedroom is $2,000 (rents before the pandemic were much higher). The most expensive neighborhoods to rent include Belltown, Pike Market, Central Waterfront, Westlake, Central Business District and SoDo where average rents for a one bedroom range from $1900 all the way to $2800. Less expensive areas to rent include Windermere, University District, Lake City, West Woodland, North College Park , Mann, Maple Leaf, Pinehurst and Wedgwood. Here, the average rent for a one bedroom is around $1,200 to $1,300 per month. Rent for a two-bedroom is more, but just renting a room and splitting the total rent with roommate means a lower monthly payment, even up to 50% less. This makes it well worth finding a roommate.
Everyone is different, so finding the right place isn’t always that easy. But we can help with that. First, tell us a little about the basics such as budget, move date and preferred areas. Then, tell us your lifestyle and preferences, such as your schedule, habits and sociability. The more we know about you, we can present you with relevant rooms for rent and roommates who share the same lifestyle and preferences. Once signed up, you can inquire and chat with your top listings who we will present to you based on the best fit.
We took the time to create the best platform to easily and quickly find a shared house. When you start, we already present the top listings for you. But, you can also narrow down the roommate and rooms for rent listings using the filters to better match your preferences. You can look through each listing to see if it’s what you’re looking for. When you find one that seems like a good fit, you can state your interest by sending them either a “like” or a message to introduce yourself. Before long, you’ll have found the perfect place and can start planning your move.
