Perspective on 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.
