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.
