Tips When Moving to Everett

   1. Everett 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 rain. May to July tends to be the best time or year to move.

   2. You can manage Everett's higher costs and density of 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 for those living on the west coast of the USA. The last few years have seen forest fires deliver continent wide smoke or even destroy west coast communities. These fall seasonal realities bring opportunities to negotiate cost reductions.

   3. Packing for humidity is a consideration, especially for storage items. Quality storage facilities mitigate damage and save your possessions. You may want to examine insurance implications, if the storage or handling charges feel like too good of a deal.

   4. Nearby hills, the shoreline and road construction contribute to "difficult access" costs. Extra steps to climb do lead to extra time and other surprise issues or costs you might consider.

Relocating to Everett

   Everett's just over 100,000 people are a little over 20 miles from Seattle. As a county seat they are a core part of the almost 4 million Seattle Metropolitan region.

The realities of living in Everett include:
    Everett is still an expensive place to live, although its distance from the core of Seattle helps. The distance from Seattle implications also attract social issues such as poverty, homelessness and crime. As the county seat Everett has programs to work on these and the ongoing migration from Seattle's core.

    Everett is is a west coast shore city. The views are amazing. The roads are also amazing as they do not share Seattle's dense traffic. On the other hand the uneven shoreline undermines the simple grid street and avenue layout many experience in other cities. Knowing where you are going and how to get there ahead of time is a practical choice.

    Everett is a comfortable place to live in. Everett is a welcoming community with needs close by, is easily walkable, with community events year long.
