City Guide
So You Want to Live in Marysville

That's great! You're making a wonderful decision to move here. There are some things to consider, however, as you negotiate your way to Marysville.


Relative to the bulk of the rest of the Puget Sound area, the cost of places to live in Marysville is extremely reasonable. That might not mean much if you come from a small town in the Midwest. The Seattle area is expensive, and a large portion of the growing Marysville population is made up of young professionals coming north from Boeing to purchase their first homes. (No, they're not flying here on a 767 jumbo jet.) Still, this means two things for the city of Marysville: One, a lot of the population is made up of smarties who have more money than they know what to do with. And two, the housing market is decidedly tilted toward buyers, not renters. Both of these factors can serve to keep the rents in Marysville higher than you might expect. Even so, rent pricesand what you can get for your money hereare still far more reasonable than they would be in the city.

Where to look

Housing in Marysville, like in most of the small towns in the area, started out as an ownership economy. That hasn't changed. This creates a dearth of apartments to rent, especially those that are professionally managed by national companies. They do exist, so theres no reason to just throw up your hands and move to the city. Youll expand your options greatly, though, if you open your search to privately owned spaces being rented out by individuals. This can be beneficial in other ways as well: Private landlords are traditionally more likely to be understanding about shaky rental histories or months where money is tight; and a lot of them will respond to maintenance requests a lot faster than an office grunt would at a giant complex. This is one community where you actually might still want to consult the classified ads as you start looking for rentals. The newspapers will be grateful for the business.

What you need to get here in one piece (and stay that way!)

  • A car: If youve lived on the West Coast for any amount of time youll understand whythings are more spread out here. Public transportation can be neglected and underfunded in large cities, and in smaller towns its often completely absent. This is the case in Marysville. Either bring a car, or like walking. A lot.
  • A decent credit and rental history: Yes, a lot of the landlords youll likely be talking to will be more flexible on this than a faceless national corporation, but most will still ask to see some proof that youre an upstanding citizen, especially if you arent originally from the area. Native northwesterners approach strangers moving to the area more like potential new recruits, and a lot of landlords will even be willing to overlook less-than-perfect histories as long as youre upfront about it. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions, however, and to put up extra deposits if you do have a questionable housing past.
  • Money: The lack of professionally managed properties also means a lack of those "Zero Deposits and Free First Months Rent!" signs youve probably seen in other places. Expect to put down a deposit, and most likely the first and last months' rents as well. A shaky credit report or rental history will probably result in a higher deposit on top of that. If you are dealing with a private landlord, though, try negotiatingget your haggle on! If they think you look trustworthy, youll more than likely be able to finagle a much more cost-effective deal.

Possible complications

Marysville is still a relatively small city, and there are probably going to be times when you need to go to Seattle to get somethingand youll likely even want to play tourist a little bit. Marysville is just far enough away from the city to discourage any public transportation between itself and Seattle, so if you dont have a car, life can get difficult. Its also good to be aware that if you plan to commute to a job in the city somewhere, traffic on the interstate can be nightmarish and potentially add an hour to your commute.

Theres no air conditioning in Pacific Northwestapar tments. The weather is blessedly temperate, so 95% of the time it's not needed, but that other 5% of the time can be close to unbearable for a lot of out-of-state newcomers. Window A/C units are common, and youll probably want to figure the price into your cost of living during the first year.

Marysville and Her Neighborhoods

In a lot of ways Marysville is a typical small town, with the stereotypical upscale neighborhoods littered with less expensive one for good measure. The large number of Boeing employees who live here, though, kind of skew the normal balance toward the upscale, so coming to Marysville with the intention of living in a slum while you save some money probably isnt very practical. That said, there are a number of neighborhoods that are more affordable, and rental prices span the financial spectrum.

Cedarcrest: One of the more curious things about Marysville is this neighborhood being one of the more inexpensive in town despite its close proximity to the Cedarcrest Golf Course. $

Central Marysville: In, well, the center of Marysville. A large portion of the buildings here were built in the last 20 years, so while they wont necessarily be brand-new, you wont be suffering through a damp northwestern winter in a 1920s building with a genuine radiator as your only source of heat. $$

Downtown: Mostly slated for commercial use, there aren't a ton of properties for rent. Like any older downtown area, expect a wide variety of price ranges and qualities. Or as much as you can find with this limited selection. $$-$$$

East Marysville: If youre renting here youre probably either renting a guest house or a high-end luxury apartment. Expect lots of interaction with highly paid aerospace engineers. $$$$

Gretchel Hill: Primarily newer homes, built into the side ofyou guessed ita hill. Views from here are spectacular, and its driving the real estate prices of this new community up quickly. If you want to live here nows the time to do it. $$$

North Marysville: A mish-mash of older and newer buildings. Rental prices here will depend on the building's age, which street corner its on, and usually the general mood of the landlord. $-$$

West Marysville: The area west of I-5, home to casinos and shopping. A lot of the buildings in this area are built on reservation land, so look before you leap. There may be laws or public policy discrepancies to keep in mind. Apartment complexes dont seem to have creeped to this side of the freeway easily, so rentals in West Marysville will likely be more of the house-on-acreage variety. $$$

Puget Sounds Good

Life on the Sound is a unique and amazing experience, a peaceful existence in a world of perpetually green trees, towering mountains, and mist thats made it inland from the ocean. If you dont get asked out on a hike by a local in your first year in Marysville, you probably arent talking to, well, anyone. The close proximity to some of the best trails in the country makes hiking one of the favored local pastimes. A plethora of ski resorts make winter in the mountains equally exciting. If you dont consider yourself outdoorsy when you get here, you probably will by the time you leave. If you ever do.

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.


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.
