Bostonian Looking to Move To Seattle

Hi, Seattle Reddit. Are there any Boston-to-Seattle transplants in the area who would be willing to share their experiences with me? I am a current Bostonian looking to move to the Pacific Northwest, and Mr. SArche and I fell in love with Seattle when we visited last year. I have browsed the massive moving post on this forum already, but still had some questions that weren't answered there if you guys had a moment:

1) How does the rent situation compare in Seattle to Boston?

2) What is the best "beginner" neighborhood to live in transitioning out of Boston? Mr. SArche and I, for you ex-Bostonians, have lived in Somerville near Sullivan Square, Arlington and Watertown.

3) I currently work as a tech support lead in a call center and make about $28000/year. I would love to break more into the tech sector after getting more programming and UI design experience. Mr. SArche works as a barista and events guy for a local museum here and makes about $35000/year. Would this be enough to live off of in the Seattle area and be able to keep up with health insurance, student loans, etc.?

Thank you guys in advance for taking the time to look at my post!
