4 Tips For Moving To Seattle

Moving to a new city is difficult, let alone one that is on such an economic and technological boom such as Seattle. Many people are moving here and to the surrounding areas for tech and engineering work, among others. The problem is there’s no space for us all, even though we all work within the city! There are ways though to find an affordable home within easy reach of the downtown or metropolitan area! Here are 4 tips we came up with to keep it easier for you to move to Seattle and start your new job, and your new life!

Public Transit Is Your Friend!

Many areas on the north end of Seattle offer reliable public transportation to downtown, or even the airport, or Kent! Areas we do business in such as Everett, Bothell, Lynnwood, and Edmonds (to name a few) all offer quiet, and serene home-lives, while still always having a bus stop nearby. Considering moving where you can park your car at a park & ride, or simply walk to a bus stop to get to work, contact the company at https://onthegomoving.com/ and get the place that fits you, this will save you a lot of money! Especially if the rent is a little steep!

Consider getting an ORCA card on a fixed monthly rate.

North Or South Of Seattle—Both Can Be Affordable!

But there are pockets of areas north and south of Seattle that offer affordable homes and apartments in charming pocket-neighborhoods surrounded by lush forestry.

Maintain Financial Responsibility And Budget!

If you’re just moving to Seattle from out of the country potentially, renting may be your only option at present. But if you’re trying to buy a home within a couple years of first moving to America you can build your credit quick! If you maintain a balance utilizing 30% of your total lines of credit, and set up auto-pay your credit will skyrocket! Especially if you have a family member already in the States that can authorize you on their existing account! Follow these steps and your credit will improve to where your chances of getting a home loan will dramatically improve.
