We are moving to the Seattle area in May 08. The problem is, we don't know which area of Seattle is going to be optimal for our needs. We would like to find a place to rent that has 2 or 3 bedrooms and a garage for under 1300$. Also, we don't want to live in an old, rundown area. We would like to live in, or close to the Bellevue area. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hello I am from Painesville OHIO. If you want to live in a new home, or newer home, for 1300 per month, that will not be the Bellevue area. Maybe look at city's close to Bellevue or raise your amount for rent or be open to other options for the Bellevue area. Maybe Kirkland, which is about 10 minutes from Bellevue

Thanks for the input. We did find a couple of town homes in Bellevue that are within our budget, they're just not as new as we'd like. Also, we checked out Kirkland, it seems that Kirkland is more expensive. Oh-well thanks.

Hi,
I moved here about one year ago and we just bought a house. But before this we were in an appartment that was quite nice. Bellevue is nice, but a bit busy, and expensive. Bordering it is Newcastle, which is very nice. The appartment we lived in was close to a golf course and about 5 min from Bellevue. I think you may be able to get a 2 bedroom for around $1300, not a three bedroom. It has detached garages or roof parking for extra $50-$100/month. Nice appartment though and great neighborhood! The name is Castlecreek appartments. May also want to check out townhomes in Newcastle. Hope this helps!
