So, the hubster is actively looking for work in the Seattle area and we have a few leads. We're definitely looking to move there soon. I've lived in the PNW before, but on the other side of the Sound. I have no idea what the area on the Seattle side is like and am looking for guidance.
I asked this question
earlier and we've decided on Seattle. It kinda helped that the hubster got laid off a few weeks back and expedited the process. So now we're moving come hell or high water. We're looking to move by the end of August at the latest. Earlier is better. We still have to sell the house though.
Anyway, we don't have any young kidlets. We're in our mid-to-late forties. We're both pretty laid back, mostly home bodies. He likes to go to the movies upon occasion, but me? I'm not the going out type. Though I guess with my medical issues, it would be nice to have reliable access to good doctors... Anyway, he's a bit of a foodie. I'd like to get out and walk more than I do here (breathing issues) so a rural-ish area is cool. Plus I am so tired of looking into my neighbors' bedroom/kitchen/living room whenever I'm in the back yard. Honestly, somewhere where I'm not stacked on top of another neighbor would be great. Those kinds of places were commonplace in Bremerton/Port Orchard, but I dunno about the Seattle side of the Sound.
We're looking for a house because we have the two dogs
(and the cat
). We're looking to rent for the first year or so, and the hubby says anything under $2K is fine if he gets the kind of job he's looking for. And, of course, a not so terrible commute into the city proper would be great for him.
So I'm asking all y'all from Seattle and the surrounding areas. What neighborhood, suburb, city, town should be be looking in? If a good company hires him, they should
fly him up there for an interview and that should
give him time to look around at houses, and I'd like to point him in the right direction. We have a plan B... but this is the plan we're going with right now.
