Here’s Why So Many People Are Moving To Tacoma, Washington
In case you haven’t noticed, the Tacoma housing market is having a moment. Washington’s third largest city is currently third in the entire nation when it comes to competitiveness for buyers, according to
Redfin. But even if you’re not in the market for a new house or even considering a move, it’s worth noting that Washingtonians seem to be falling in love with Tacoma left and right (and we can’t blame them).
Tacoma is located in Pierce County, on the banks of Puget Sound.
It's second in population only to Seattle and Spokane, so it's safe to say it's one of Washington's major cities. Still, it manages to maintain somewhat of a small town vibe.
Tacoma wasn't always considered a desirable place to live.
But as housing prices started to skyrocket in Seattle, a lot of middle class families were priced out and started flocking here instead.
That being said, Seattle's high priced housing market is far from the only reason people are lining up to live in Tacoma.
Those who have called T-Town home will attest to the fact that it has a lot of charm and a character that's all its own.
Tacoma really does have a little bit of everything: award-winning restaurants, shopping districts, a rich nightlife, and a thriving theater scene, for starters.
It's know for its famous Museum of Glass, and you'll find plenty of other museums worth exploring in the city as well.
Every neighborhood has its own character, and you'll find everything from century old neighborhoods full of Craftsman homes to up-and-coming urban dwellings.
For a prime example of the city's progression, just check out Point Ruston and its condos, modern shopping and dining options, and waterfront walking path.
Tacoma's close proximity to nature is also a big draw for Washingtonians who want to have it all.
You can see Mt. Rainier from every viewpoint in the city. But if you need an instant escape, just head to the beautiful Point Defiance Park.
Whether or not you could see yourself living in Tacoma, it's well worth paying a visit.
There are fun events and happenings in every season, and you'll never be bored (or hungry) here.
