University Place, WA Movers
Moving to University Place
University Place (called “UP” by locals) is a small city located east of Tacoma on the coast of the Puget Sound. The city is best known for its stunning views of the water and the Olympic Mountains, as well as its family-oriented, small-town feel. Whether you’re moving to the Northwest for work, for family or simply for a new adventure, University Place has something for everyone.
Are you wondering, “Who are the best movers in University Place?” The answer is simple. With more than 16 years of experience, a crew of highly-trained professional movers, and a commitment to excellence in customer service, All Ready Moving is the clear choice for all your moving needs.
University Place has a total population of just over 32,000 residents. The median age among locals is 37.2, and the city has an incredible diversity of residents across all ages. UP is also ethnically diverse; while 70% of residents are White, 10% are Asian, 7% are Black, 10% are of mixed race and 8% are Latinx. About half the population consists of families with school-aged children.
Only 55% of people living in University Place own their homes, compared to a national average of nearly 64%. The median home cost in the area is $319,900, and property taxes here usually exceed $3,000 per year. The average rent in the city is $1,017, which, while still higher than the national average, offers an affordable option for residents who don’t want to buy.
The median household income in University Place is $64,883, and that number was 6% higher in 2016 than the year previous. Wondering where you’ll work in this city? The local economy maintains about 15,000 jobs, and the top industries are healthcare, education and retail trade. While this city is a fair distance from Seattle and Olympia, it’s only 15 minutes from Tacoma, WA, so many folks who live in one of the sister cities will work in the other.
Looking for fun things to do in the area? One of the biggest local attractions is the Chambers Bay Golf Course. Not only is the course itself beautiful, but it also overlooks the water, making any golf outing extra spectacular. Families with Kids will also love visiting Curran Apple Orchard Park each fall to pick their own apples and drink freshly squeezed cider during the Orchard’s annual harvest celebration.
