South Everett… A Seattle Commuter’s Dream?

When we’re helping our happy homeowners find their next home-sweet-home, commute is always one of the TOP things people are concerned about. And let’s face it… Seattle traffic can get downright gnarly at times. 

Our latest listing is in South Everett, and this particular location presents some fantastic commuting options. South Everett is one of Seattle’s neighboring cities where you can find a single-family house or a townhome for around the $500k price point and still have a totally manageable commute into Seattle for work. 

Here are some of the fantastic commuting options from the South Everett area:

Now, while it might not be the mode of transit you use most often, we want to share the most exciting commuting option here, and that’s the airport at Paine Field in Everett. 

First off, Paine Field is a short 8-minute drive from our latest South Everett listing—MUCH better than the 39 minutes during non-rush hour (which requires you take I-5 through Downtown Seattle, too…) to Seatac. Below we’ve included a map of everywhere you can fly direct out of Paine Field… and it’s pretty amazing. Jet off to vacation in Las Vegas, head to San Francisco and back in a day for a business meeting, or grab a connecting flight from Denver or LAX.

The Sounder Train runs south from Everett to Seattle and then Seattle to Lakewood, and there are several new light rail stops planned throughout north Seattle through Everett in the coming years.

The Interurban Trail (North) begins in Everett, runs almost right by our latest listing, and goes south straight into Downtown Seattle, and since much of it is paved, it’s ideal for bikes, scooters, unicycles, etc. 😉 Click here to read more about how to enjoy this scenic Rail Trail! 


The South Everett/Lynnwood area is a popular suburb for those who are still looking for a reasonable commute into Seattle via car. Both Interstate-5 and Highway 99 (aka Aurora) offer access into the city making it easy to hop on either one and cruise on into Downtown Seattle or South Lake Union. (The express lane option makes it even easier as well!) 


There are *several* Park & Ride options in Everett and the surround areas—check out a list of Everett Park & Rides here. Each Park & Ride location includes a list of the buses that stop there, so you can plan your trip accordingly. 


Not only is out latest townhome listing in South Everett practically new, but it’s nestled right along a greenbelt that offers privacy AND a lovely view! Click here to see this 3-bedroom, 3-bath townhome.
