The census bureau put out new data this week showing huge growth in the Seattle area.  King County had the fourth-largest population increase in the country from July 2012 to July 2013.  37,000 new residents came to the area during that period, a 1.8 percent increase.

The greater Seattle market, defined as Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue by the census bureau, increased by 57,514 new residents during the same span. That put Seattle at #10 on the list of metropolitan areas gaining the most residents.  The hot job market, reasonable housing prices, and lack of a state income tax are all factors being cited as contributing to the attractiveness of the Seattle area.
