Mapping The 10 Most Expensive Rentals In Seattle

View as Map

Could we possibly do Renters Week without taking a peek at the most expensive rentals currently on the market in Seattle? Of course not. With the help of Zillow, we're doing just that. You might be surprised to find that not all of them exist in Belltown or Downtown. We've got quite a share of U-District homes, a Queen Anne house and even a Magnolia luxury abode. The one thing they have all in common is that it will cost you thousands a month to live there.
