Seattle Credit Counseling and Debt Consolidation Services
While many metro areas have recovered from the effects of the Great Recession, people are still striving to improve their personal financial situation. Credit problems create added stress to an already full and busy life for many Americans, and Seattle residents are not excluded from this dilemma.
Seattle has been ranked as one of the best locations in the country for new job growth. Seattle ranks 16th in the top 100 metros for growth and 12th for prosperity, with an 8.9% increase in job growth over the last 5 years. Despite economic growth, unemployment is still a problem. As of May 2016, the national unemployment rate was 4.5% while Seattle’s ranked slightly higher at 4.8%.
Known for its great music scene and typical northwestern weather, Seattle is also one of the safest cities in America. With a median home value of $441,000 and with 56.5% of Seattleites holding a bachelor’s degree or higher, Seattle is home to a well-educated population. However, people don’t always get financially savvy in school.
