Pros and Cons of Moving to Everette WA

everette--wa Written by Marquette Carney

Welcome to Everett WA. 

You know, Washington is a pretty cool place to live. But not everyone can afford some of the expensive places such as Seattle. 

Fortunately, you don’t have to sell your plasma to afford to live that city life. Trust me, too much plasma donation can quickly tire you out. I’m on my third nap for the day. 

And that’s why Everett WA is a great second option. You’ll get a lot of those big-city benefits without all the needles. 

That’s why today I’m covering the pros and cons of moving to Everett Washington. 

Let’s get started.

Con #3, Crime rate

Let’s get one thing clear–Everett is no stranger to crime. 

Just like any other big to moderately sized city, you’ll get your fair share of hoodlums looking to ruin your day. 

But there is a bright side to this situation. And no, that’s not a euphemism for the pearly gates. 

The bright side here is that the crime is isolated to the neglected parts of the city. So as long as you avoid those parts and/or keep the Avengers on speed dial, you’ll be fine. 

Con #2, Poverty

After the last con, you may be thinking to yourself– what could possibly cause criminals to rock bottom old ladies before stealing their purses and expired hard candy? 

Well, look no further than poverty. 

The poverty rate in this city is at a high 15%. And a quick trip downtown will quickly expose you to the city’s abundance of homeless citizens. 

The truth is this city isn’t in the best economic condition. Which has left people in a pretty crappy situation. 

But when it comes to crap, this next con takes the cake. 

Con #1, Dog poop

You know, sometimes when I make these videos there’s a lot of overlap between the pros and cons. 

But I must say, this is the first time poop has ever made the list.

Here’s the thing. Everett is a pretty dog-friendly place. And within the city’s plethora of parks, there’s almost always a good number of dogs living their carefree lives. 

And while this is great for the dogs, it’s not so great for the person who finds themselves ankle-deep in that brown stuff.

Meaning if you want to move to this city, you must be vigilantly aware of the brown landmines. 

But moving on to less crappy news, let’s talk about homeandmoney.com. 

Did you know this service is the best way to buy a house in 2022? Seriously it’s not even close. 

They’ll hook you up with your very own personal assistant who will help you find an agent, get funding, and basically do all the heavy lifting for you. 

Best of all, the service is absolutely free!

Ok, now let’s check out some pros of living in Everett.

Pro #3, Cost of living

Compared to neighboring cities, Everett has a pretty tolerable cost of living.

For example, the cost of living in this city is 50% lower than in Seattle. Making it the perfect place to make your money stretch. 

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also no income tax here. Which is really freaking unfair when you think about it. 

The petty part of me is actually happy that there’s crime in the city now. If uncle tom gets to put his hands in my pockets then you absolutely should have a gang member in yours. 

It’s only right. 

Pro #2, Work opportunities

Even though Everette isn’t in the best economic position, it still has a fair amount of work opportunities. 

Industries such as aviation, healthcare, finance, and law are growing in the area. 

And if you happen to not fit neatly within any of those boxes, you’re only a 30-minute drive from Seattle, which has many more opportunities. 

Pro #1, Things to do

Everett is one of those cities that has something for everyone. 

And living here will give you abundant access to concerts, waterfronts, over 40 parks, mountainous views, and more. 

Sure, many of the things listed are technically outdoor activities, but there are still plenty of fun activities for the non-outdoorsy folk to have fun with. 

Everett has bowling alleys, amazing libraries, and even an award-winning distillery. 

All in all, I’d consider this city to be a pretty good place to live.
