Hi,
Can anybody please answer the following questions for me?

1. Approximately on average how much does a studio or a single bed + single bath apartment cost in Redmond, WA 98053.

2. Is the cost of living very high compared to places like St.Paul, Minnesota. Approximately how much can it cost for a month for a single individual (average rent plus common living expenses ignoring any special personal expenses).

3. How is the climate of Redmond, WA 98053? Does it snow in winter or does it rain heavily?

4. Does Redmond by any chance have good public transportation like bus services etc.etc. or is it that a car is a must for moving around?

5. What are the places nearby Redmond by renting apartments where one will still not have to commute much in case office is in Redmond.

Thanks much in advance for all those reply. Please let me know soon.

1. Redmond is a bit pricey... seems apts run about 800.+ for a 1 bedroom. If you are looking for a room mate or to rent a room in a home it would be less.

2. can't really answer this one as I don't know what lifestyle you are looking at. I don't think it would be much more than living in a city like St. Paul. (but then I have never checked into st. paul)

3. Climate is similar to Seattle. This year they got a bit of snow and hail but it doesn't stay long. It does get cloudy a great deal of the winter. But summers are warm.

4. Great public transportation. I see buses all the time and you can work in Seattle and live in Redmond and not own a car. Providing you live closer to town. (Redmond Way)

5. Kirkland is next to Redmond as is Woodinville. Sammamish also but pricey apts.

There is some really good information about the cost of living information of Washington's cities at PayScale - Salary Comparison, Salary Survey, Wages They have this cost of living calculator where you put in your current and new cities and it will tell you what to expect in terms of food, utilities, transportation, rent, etc.
Hope that helps!

Redmond's climate is about the same as Seattle's, but the timing varies. We've seen more snows in recent years than a decade or so ago. Try this site for weather info:

Getting from Redmond to Seattle is well supported by community transit, but getting around within Redmond is not. There is a bike path, Sammamish Trail, but it won't take you to much of Redmond. It is a pedestrian and bike friendly town, but you will need your car.

Good luck!
