The next image shows the rental market, again the darker the color the more expensive the area. What is interesting is the Seattle area is a younger demographic paying the most for rent.
The next image shows the percentage of income it takes to afford the rent. There are some pockets, but it really shows how wealthy the entire Seattle and Eastside really are.
