My husband is flying into Seattle (from Ohio) this Thursday to sign a new work contract. Unless there is an unexpected surprise, we'll be relocating within the next 6-8 weeks.
I had originally planned on flying in with him to find a place to live, but due to terminal illness in my mother, I have to stay here.
Trying to apartment shop from a country away is incredibly overwhelming. I've shopped the branded places, the Craigslist duplexes and even the mobile home parks. Our goal is to live low cost for the first year- two years in order to pay off our outstanding debt and then be able to purchase our home outright once we're established.
I've narrowed our list considerably, but was hoping someone could offer information on great Townhome communities, Apartments or the like. My husband will be touring a few places on Saturday, and I'd like to point him in the right direction.
We will be working in downtown Bellevue, and as a single car family we have to live within 10 miles so that we can bike to work/play and continue to share a car. We love being green! The top of my list are Lionsgate Townhomes and Northshore Townhomes.
Any experience with either?
Thank you all so much in advance for any help or insight.
