I'm looking at moving to Seattle area in 2016.

I'm a pharmacy technician. I'm an early twenty something female. I plan on living alone. I do have two pets (cat&lab)

I'd like to know which neighborhoods are safer for me to be living alone and walking my dog at night safely. Also I own a car so parking is a consideration. What can I expect to pay in rent in these areas?

Im also single so dating scene is something to consider. Truthfully not a priority. Just want to get out there.
Is the Seattle freeze exaggerated?

Where is the biggest hospital with a good hiring rate
Fred Meyer grocery stores are also a consideration.

I'm sure I'll think of more questions.

Thanks!

I'm sorry to hear that.

Nice, there's no shortage of sick people, especially with so many GMOs around.

Studies also show that people who have pets live longer on average, so kudos to you in that regard as well.

Capital Hill and Bellevue.

Bothell and Mountlake Terrace are suburbs of Seattle and are also nice areas.

Parking is a bear.... I saw a sign bragging about a deal, $14.00 an hour.....

I've heard from a few women that it can be difficult if you're straight. Mainly because there are so many homosexual men here.

From a guy's perspective, the women here seem to have a lot of carnal desire but they don't seem to want anything serious if that makes any sense.

Sorry, Google would be more helpful to you than I would be concerning this question.

For rent information, you'll want to look at this:

Rent Too High? Compare Seattle

Expect a 1 bedroom to be about $1000/mo, and it'll go north of that depending on how popular the neighborhood is that you want to live in.

Everyone has a different opinion about the Seattle freeze.

The University of Washington has the most largest and most comprehensive hospital network in this area. There are other hospitals like the Polyclinic and Swedish.

Anything in the 1k/month range is going to be missing something like a full kitchen/bath, have a shared communal kitchen/bath, or not have laundry on site or in unit.

If you go to somewhere like South Everett there is Providence Hospital and plenty of pharmacies, also it is lower in rent. 6-700 for a 1 bedroom.

Exactly I do work for Kroger.

Thank you for all the info. What is the best site to look for rentals?
Also community gardens?
