Great place for a senior couple. Lots of downtown activities close and accessible. Utilities are somewhat high, Keep this in mind if you are on a budget. Puget Sound Energy handles gas and electric. They are very over priced compared to surrounding services. City seems to be high on water sewer charges as well. ( again compared to surrounding areas. ) Puyallup is a beautiful town with great people. ... more

Not much else you can do other than A. Move or B. Make sure you have insurance and it covers everything in your apartment. . There's not much else that can be done, if it's an apartment that allows smoking, then she has much a right to be there as you. If anything you can ask her to quit, but if she doesn't care then she doesn't care and will continue to. If it's such a concern to you then you should probably just move to a different apartment. ... more

I think it varies by area. The last time I looked a few months ago, south Snohomish County was way out of date in part because the Sheriff was switching over to a new system. Probably nothing was more current than 9 months.

SPD has a lot of crime data on-line and you'd probably be better off looking there if you're looking for something inside the Seattle city limits (or another law enforcement website for other areas).

Finally, keep in mind that a lot of crime can be prevented by simple precautions (lights, not leaving stuff inside a car, etc.) and that some things are rather random. On the last point, in my neighborhood there was a murder within the past 8 years, but and that one event was a family member killing another family member.

Mgt should screen the tenants (and the friends they keep) more closely. There is a female tenant at Twin Ponds who has done several stints in penitentiaries, is into drugs, crime, is violent, drives a car that's not hers and has an abusive personality. Her boyfriend and group of friends are of the same ilk. ... more

Joshua Meeks answered:
The best advice I give to my clients for knowing any area is to drive through that area at night.
I noticed you live in Boca Raton (which is where I grew up) so that may be a little difficult for you.
Another method is to go to, enter that zipcode in and compare that with areas you know well.

Like every neighborhood in Seattle, there are better parts than other. The best thing is to explore the neighborhood with a knowledgable real estate agent to determine the good, the bad and the ugly! ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

if you are so worried about being politically incorrect that you cannot even answer another human being, why do you go on a website at all?
