Well I just got a new job (finally). It's time for me to prioritize,
stop splurging on everything I see, & start saving again.
First thing on my list was to move out from under my parents' roof.

I was considering looking for an apartment south of Seattle but north of Kent,
basically Renton to Tukwila, which is basically in the middle of Seattle & school (Highline Community College).

Anyone that used to live or currently lives in apartments, do you have any advice of what to look for? anything I should stay away from? suggestions of acertain apartment complex..etc, etc..sorry I'm a noob at this. btw, I already have a potential roommate.

Thanks in advance for the advice/help.

Renton's got some nice apts in the Area

I used to live in that area the prices are usually decent

I used to live in the Berkshires on Eagle Ridge Drive..my sis lives in the Woodcliffe apt. that is in the same area...the area is flooded with apartmentcomplexes that are pretty nice

Fairwood is a nice area to stay in too if you can find a decent price..its right between Renton and Kent but further East

I'd say keys are proximity to buslines and grocery stores. oh yeah, and in unit washer and dryer.
Im considering selling my condo and moving into an apartment and those are things Im looking for. I know I personally also want a place that is clean and has apool workout room.

Depending where I transfer to, I will most likely move out thento be closer to campus. But thanks everyone for your input.
