Perspective on Moving to Bellevue
1. Bellevue has a mild climate. Ocean currents usually keep the winter above freezing and summer below the 80's. Instead of snow the October to April period sees some rain. May to July tends to be the best time to move.
2. You can manage Bellevue's higher costs and dense living conditions by downsizing possessions. Leave items behind, or consider putting some in storage, to see if you can live without them. Note: Climate change is a reality to those living on the west coast of the USA. The last few years have seen forest fires destroy cities and continent wide smoke. These fall seasonal realities bring opportunities to negotiate cost reductions and controls.
3. Packing for humidity is a consideration, especially for storage items. Quality storage facilities will save your possessions. Reducing indirect and replacement costs reduces and removes over all costs.
4. The hills, inland water ways and roadway construction contribute to extra "difficult access" costs. Extra steps to climb often lead to extra time and other surprise issues.
