The townhouse my son lives in on Capitol hill provides one parking spot; there are few other parking places available in most of the downtown core. My son's gf has one, but apparently recently got broken into and had the gps stolen (un-secured and doesn't move much.)

Downtown Seattle has the most expensive rents (averaging around $2.50/sf), although downtown Bellevue, downtown Kirkland are right there, too. Seattle is better for transit connections, in general.

BTW: it snowed in the higher hills around Seattle today. No problems; didn't stick very much.
If you absolutly do not need to drive in the snow and you don't have any place to store the winter wheels/tires, then by all means, sell them and pocket some cash. If you have a place to store them, why not keep them? It's not like you're paying taxes on 'em or anything. And if you want to travel over Snoqualmie or Stevens pass to go skiing, you'll need them.
