Everett Overview
More than a century ago, eastern industrialists saw Everett’s incredible potential as a successful port and business hub. Today, Everett has evolved from a bustling mill town into a thriving commercial center with a vital Pacific deep-water port that provides access to crucial overseas markets.

As the Snohomish County seat, the city of Everett is the center of the Puget Sound-area economic development. The city supports a robust manufacturing and retail core, a state-of-the-art Naval station and continued expansion of its high-tech industry hub.

With a current population of approximately 103,100, the city of Everett accommodates an ethnically diverse populace that’s both younger (median age of 32) and more educated (84% high school graduates) than the national average. Despite an ideal waterfront location, Everett’s median home price is relatively affordable—just $317,500, compared to $591,000 in nearby Seattle. And, though our cost of living is slightly higher than the national average, it’s still more than 25% lower than the cost of living in Seattle. You’ll find a snapshot of the City of Everett’s basic demographics below.
