Sadly this area used to be nice, but is going downhill. Some of the outskirts around Mukilteo and Lynnwood are nicer, but overall Everett is no longer a place I would choose to live because it just isn't like it used to be years ago. The local mall doesn't have a big anchor store (best store there is for flooring!), local dining is only okay, school system is only ok, etc. In addition, there has been an increase in drug problems in the area and the safety is not great in many areas. One positive though is that the drinking water is really good quality! :)

Everett is like many suburbs of Seattle - rapidly gentrifying and getting more expensive. The downtown area is quite nice. The buildings have been redone and look lovely. In the "outskirts" of Everett, that's not necessarily the case. I live in an apartment building in south Everett, and while the apartment itself is nice, the area is less so. We frequently deal with fights, drunken arguments, and mentally ill homeless people sorting through our dumpster. The police are overworked and don't have time to deal with such minimal complaints (in comparison to robbery, etc). Programs to help the mentally ill homeless population would be wonderful.
The Everett area used to be nice but is going downhill. Around Mukilteo and Lynnwood are nicer, but overall Everett is no longer a place I would choose to live because it is no longer a safe area. School system is subpar, etc. In addition, there has been an increase in drug problems in the area and the safety is not great in many areas. The upside is that the outdated YMCA is being remodeled soon!
