City GuideFederal Way
Greetings, future Federal Way renters, and welcome to the virtual nerve center for your apartment hunting endeavors! One of the most scenic communities in western Washington, Federal Way is a popular living locale for a wide range of Seattle-Tacoma area residents. But before we scour the land for the perfect apartment for you, let’s take a few moments to examine what life’s really like in Federal Way.
Federal Way is Aesthetic

Bordered by majestic Puget Sound on one sound and mighty Mount Rainier on the other, Federal Way offers some of the most breathtaking natural views you’ll find in all of Washington. The city is also home of the Weyerhaeuser timber company’s headquarters, much of whose land, including a pair of botanical gardens and tons of parks and scenic walking trails, is available for public viewing. Numerous state and city parks and beaches also offer picturesque views of the Olympic Mountain Range and Puget Sound.

Federal Way is Convenient

Situated eight miles from downtown Tacoma and 25 miles from Seattle, residents of Federal Way have the luxury of working in, and enjoying the amenities of, these larger cities without having to deal with their big-city headaches, like congestion, and pollution. Night owls, likewise, are able to enjoy the serenity of suburbia while being within a 20-minute drive of Seattle’s numerous nighttime hotspots.

Federal Way is Renter-Friendly

Unlike many western Washington suburbs, Federal Way’s housing market is not dominated by homeowners, as renters account for about 43 percent of residents. Waiting lists are extremely rare, many property managers offer six-month, one-year, and month-to-month leases, and move-in specials pop up frequently. Amenities and floor plans range from basic to lavish, so whether you’re in the market for a studio, a multi-level townhouse, a luxury loft, or anything else, you’ll be able to find something that fits your needs and your tastes in Federal Way. Just be sure to read your lease carefully before signing it, treating it like the important (albeit tedious) legal document that it is. Also, be prepared to show banking info, proof of income, and proof of a positive renting/credit history, and remember to inspect your new pad carefully, checking for blemishes, faulty appliances, leaky pipes, etc, before moving in.

Federal Way is Waiting for You

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get off your keester and come along with us, because your domicile discovering adventures are about to begin! So congrats in advance, and happy hunting!

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
