Housing is expensive in Seattle. A one-bedroom home typically rents for more than $1,150 a month. A studio apartment rents for more than $900 a month. A 333-square-foot home is currently listed at $299,000.

The median household wage in Seattle is currently about $67,000. Experts say a median wage of $72,000 is required to live in the area. A study showed that if the median cost of living in the U.S. is set at 100, Seattle is now at 176 and growing.
