Seattle is a place known for its coffee, but the metro area also is brimming with beautiful scenery and great jobs. Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks, Costco, T-Mobile and Nordstrom are just a few of the major companies that call the Seattle area home.
But Seattle is anything but cheap. Homes sell for an average $712,000, yet even at those levels they’re typically snapped up in nine days.
The weather is often cloudy and rainy, which may help explain why residents who want to say goodbye are looking most at homes in sunny Los Angeles.
