What neighborhoods/areas would you recommend for finding a single family rental near Northgate Hospital in Seattle? Looking for 3+br, around $1,000/mo in a safe area. Is this possible, or are we needing a further commute? Thanks

I think you'll have better luck inventing a time machine and going back to 1995, when that was a normal rental rate on 3+ bedroom homes in safer areas. If you're willing to compromise on the quality, you might be able to find something for $1400-1600. There might even be some tear downs waiting for demolition that could be illegally sublet for the price you want, but that's going to be hit or miss.

At that pricepoint, you're probably commuting from Lynnwood, and probably paying $1300+.

And by Northgate Hospital, we assume you mean UW Medicine's Northwest Hospital in Northgate, right?

I agree, $1,000/mo for a 3+ bedroom is going to be difficult, if not impossible, to find without going so far out of the metropolitan area where you'd spend more time commuting than it would be worth.

Hah! ...yeah, I'd like to step back into that time machine and go back to my high school days when I'd go to doctor's appointments at THE Northgate Hospital which was at the northern portion of the mall itself.

*tinkering with time machine*...

Ay yi yi. Well thank you for the info. It's difficult to navigate Craigslist, etc and see the reality of the area when you are looking from another state with an entirely different economic picture. You've answered my question.

I agree; I had a 4-br. rental in that general area back in the 90's, in Pinehurst, which is across 15th NE from the general Northgate area, and it rented for $1250. Those days are long past, OP. It's a very nice area in there, but today, your price would get you a 1-br. there.
