SEATTLE — Issaquah has been named the most up-and-coming city in Washington, according to a new list by real estate website Estately.com.

The website looked at cities with populations of more than 30,000 and ranked them based on population increase, home values, decreased poverty levels, crime rate, income increases and the number of residents with Bachelor’s degrees.

Estately said Issaquah is one of the fastest growing and wealthiest cities in Washington. Its population increase, crime rate reduction and number of residents with higher education degrees topped other cities in the state. For home values increases, Issaquah came in at 23rd and 14th in poverty reduction.

Seattle ranked in the top ten, but barely, with a spot at number nine. According to Estately, the city is not experiencing the population increase of other cities on the higher part of the list. Also, while Seattle is home to wealthy residents with college educations, Estately said it does not appear enough is being done to reduce poverty rates. Adding to that concern is the rising cost of living in Seattle.

The top ten cities on the rise, according to Estately, are as follows:
1) Issaquah
2) Pasco
3) Auburn
4) Bellevue
5) Sammamish
6) Bellingham
7) Lacey
8) Olympia
9) Seattle
10) Renton

As for the cities on the decline, Estately ranked the following at the bottom of its list:
28) Kennewick
29) Spokane
30) Vancouver
31) University Place
32) Bothell
33) Longview
34) Everett
35) Lakewood
36) Federal Way
37) Des Moines

The complete list can be found on Estately’s website.

    As a long time Lakewood resident I can say the flood of illegal invaders can claim top responsibility, followed by forced "diversity" and the rise of hate disguised as "progressive" communism.

    Drugs, gangs, prostitution, organized crime in government, anti-white hate and unreported murders, the list is endless.

    When will the intelligent wake up and smell the putrescence of another Soviet Union in the making?

    The world has seen too many HOLODOMOR's already. Find the truth and at least know why our children will be slaughtered while the howling primitives cheer it on.

      I fully agaree, I would never want to live in Bellvue. Thought it might be a nice place but found out the people are't so nice.

        Yes, we are completely, unexplicably, and utterly rude.

        Even more reason to stay away.

        Definitely don't want to dine their, or frequent any of our merchants.

        Please stay in Seattle, or go back to California.

    Before you start calling properties and getting estimates, you may need to
    find out what you need cleaned. Many mothers today work outside the home in addition to raising children, and sometimes housework suffers as a result.

    find out what you need cleaned. Finally, I think parents and grandparents need to make it clear to students that keeping the apartment clean is a personal health issue.

    When apartments get the unit “make ready” for the next tenant, they usually employ a cleaning service to
    complete this. Regardless of whether you have a 3 bedroom apartment home or a

    There are a couple of excellent e-courses available that give a lot of really valuable information on how to structure your business,where and how to get clients, how to calculate prices, what equipment and supplies are needed etc, and in my opinion are well worth the $30 or $40 they cost.

    Another must-have piece of equipment is a cell phone to enable easy response
    to your customers. When apartments get the unit “make ready” for the next tenant, they usually
    employ a cleaning service to complete this. Most of the companies that offer apartment
    cleaning services are bonded and insured so that if any
    accident were to happen they will take full responsibility for the
    replacement.
