I am starting to look for other places. In one year it went up $180 dollars. Last year it went up $90. The manager tells me now I have to pay water too. The manager didn’t tell me I would have to pay for the hot water meter too. Twice that happened.
Everywhere the apartments are getting more expensive. In my area it’s normal for an apartment to cost $2000. It’s very hard. I found a different place but I can’t live there because it’s just for low income. Everywhere–up, up, up.
Everywhere you look there are construction people working. Before no one was coming here, now everyone is coming here. It’s because Seattle has jobs. If a city has no jobs, everybody leaves.”
