The state of Washington has no shortage of great cities, but which are the state’s most up-and-coming cities? Estately set out to determine this by ranking the state’s most populated cities from those most on the rise to those which are lagging behind the furthest. To do this we ranked every Washington state city with a population over 30,000 on six criteria:

Increase in population (U.S. Census)
Increase in home values (U.S. Census)
Reduction in poverty levels (U.S. Census)
Decrease in crime rate (FBI Uniform Crime Report)
Increase in income (U.S. Census)
Increase in residents with bachelor degrees (U.S. Census)

Once we crunched the numbers (averaged out rankings in the six criteria) we found Issaquah to be in the top spot and Des Moines to be in need of the most improvement.

Washington State

According to a recent post on Estately Blog, a good number of Washington cities are on the rise, with Issaquah firmly at number one and Renton rounding up the top 10. If you’re about to head on to one of these growing cities to start the next chapter of your life, then a bit of congratulations are in order. That being said, have you planned your move yet? It is important to plan your move way ahead of time because there’s a lot to take care of in the safe and efficient transport of goods alone.

When to start packing

Choosing packing services provided by trusted Seattle movers that know how to use the appropriate packing boxes and materials is crucial to a successful move. Schedule the packing process with your mover a day or two before the arrival of the moving van. If you plan on packing your goods yourself, it’s never too early to start.

Planning your moving day

The best moving companies will give you the option to select possible dates during which your goods can be loaded and delivered to your new home. Here’s something important to keep in mind when choosing your dates: Summer months are the busiest time for movers, so the more possible dates you provide, the more flexible you and your mover can keep on schedule.

Moving to another place is seldom easy, but don’t worry. Dependable movers in Seattle like Reliable Moving can help make the transition a whole lot easier. Get your move rolling by requesting a free quote today.
