Apartments for rent in Seattle?

Asked by Jessica, Idaho Sat Feb 28, 2009

I'm looking for a 2bed 1bath apartment in Seattle for around $1,000 a month. Is this realistic? Can you recommend sites or realtors to contact?

Use Zilpy to find the ballpark pricing. Use Craigslist as the main source for Seattle rentals.…

If you can't find it on craigslist, you may need to re-adjust your expectations. Rentals are still tight in Seattle, so they move quickly in the price range you're trying to get.

Hi Jessica,

You may also want to go to and search for rentals.

Zilpy will help you with the values by area. If you call a real estate agent in the areas you are looking, I am sure they will assist you with finding the right place at the right price.

Looks like you may be in Idaho, so any of the agents replying here may be a good choice for you here in the Seattle area.

Good luck,

Hi there! I'm a realtor with John L. Scott however in the properties I own, I just advertise them on Craigslist, The Stranger, the Seattle Weekly, etc. You will find most rental properties that way.

Good luck!

You can select and view everything available in Seattle, whether you want to search by number of bedrooms, monthly rent, it's up to you. Once you find something that you think looks interesting or that you'd like to see the inside just give me a call. There is no cost to you at all to use my services -- but makes the long distance search much, much easier!

Good Luck!

If you contact me directly and let me know where you'll be working or attending school etc I should be able to give you some good tips for finding a rental in a convenient location. If you are looking for temporary housing while searching for a new home, I will gladly scout out rental properties and provide you objective feedback. I provide this type of service to all my relocation clients while they work with me to purchase a new home.

Probably not a realistic expectation. I would start with craigs list and the Seattle times website.…
