City Guide
Shoreline, Washington

Looking for a place to settle into that is free of hustle and bustle but full of parks, nice neighborhoods and, of course, an abundance of great coffee shops? Look no further than Shoreline. A few minutes north of Seattle sits a small town that is still young and growing. Incorporated shortly after grunge rock put Seattle and its surrounding areas on the map (and on MTV), Shoreline is a small town that is becoming a coveted neighborhood.

The appeal of Shoreline is its location. Offering residents the sandy beaches of Puget Sound, mountain views, and the ability to be in Downtown Seattle faster than you can “space needle,” it’s no wonder Shoreline has a population of 54,000 and growing. The cost of living in Shoreline can be pricey, as with most of Washington state, but the quality of life and low unemployment and crime rates seem to outweigh the price of housing. Plus, everything you could possibly need recreation-wise is here as the city boasts 381 acres of green space and parks and you are just a short drive from Mt. Rainier, Cascade Mountains, Lake Washington, etc.

But just how much does housing cost in this scenic Washington town? Well, it certainly depends on the neighborhood & apartment you choose. Overall, 2 BRs range between $1100-$1200 depending where in the city you choose to live. For instance, North City, and areas close to Richmond Highlands, (the north end) are a bit quieter, with newer, luxury apartments (built in 2007 or so) and will cost a bit more than living in the city center. But the apartments here, such as Arabella Apartments, have a lot to offer (stainless steel appliances/kitchens, access to shopping, dining and views of the water/ mountains). A studio in the north end will run you around $830 while a 2BR can be upwards of about $1200. These same options in complexes in the heart of Shoreline will be about a $100 cheaper per month—studio ($740) and 2 BR ($1000).

While there aren’t an overwhelming amount rental properties in the area (due to city size and the amount of single-family homes) the options feature some pretty upscale amenities (fitness centers, fireplaces, spas, gated access, covered parking, views, trails and so on). Apartment communities here tend to run specials throughout the year and offer incentives for renters (washer and dryer in every unit, discounts, etc.). Depending on the size/bedrooms in the unit, the typical deposit to get you in the door is about $375. Another perk of Shoreline apartment living is that most complexes are pet-friendly as long as you provide a deposit to ensure your furry companion doesn’t eat the carpet or destroy the interior. Those with well-behaved pets often get half of their deposit back upon move-out.

Life in Shoreline will guarantee you a few things: your coffee cup will always be full, your neighbors will always be friendly and the view will always be scenic. Shoreline is a peaceful, almost serene, city with glorious summers (though the winters can be drab) and great opportunities. One look at our apartment listings and it is easy to see why Shoreline has been written up as one of the best neighborhoods in the Seattle area (twice!) and why CNNMoney ranked the city 64th out of the “100 Best Places to Live.” We are sure you will agree. Happy Hunting!
