Tacoma is a mid-sized city with a diverse community. By necessity, we had to generalize a little while putting this presentation together. We've divided the area into six different lifestyle sections to show you the predominant or unique housing available in each area. You should know, however, that it's possible to find any kind of housing in any area. So if you'd like a new home or apartment close to downtown- they are available, as are older homes in the area we refer to as "Bedroom Communities" and "Country Living." A good real estate agent or relocation expert should be able to help you find exactly the home you want in exactly the area you'd like to live.
