Renting in Seattle’s core neighborhood can be rough. You are at the mercy of landlords, spam Craigslist ads, and skyrocketing rents. It has a lot of our Diva Dwellers asking “Where the hell are all of the apartments and houses to rent in Seattle?” This is a question we get all of the time. The rental market out there just sucks right now and I would not expect it to get better any time soon. It is a very aggressive market and you should expect to fight for an apartment the way they do in New York. In the last year alone rental prices have gone up 10%. In some neighborhoods, the jump has been way more significant. On Capitol Hill, you should expect to pay over $2,800 for a two bedroom and at least $1,900 for a one bedroom with parking. Here are some steps to help you get in the game and find your own Diva Dwelling Rental of your own:
