  1. Washington

    1. Seattle Multifamily Market Report
      First Quarter 2017

      The regional apartment market vacancy rate is currently 3.4%, well below the 20-year average of 4.9%. Vacancy last peaked at a rate of 7.2% in Fall 2009 as the recession was fully felt. Occupancy increased ever since, with vacancy oscillating from 3.3% to 4.0% over the past three years as consistent demand has nearly matched the significant amounts of new inventory. Rental rates are at historic highs but only recently has the rate of increase moderated in the close-in markets. Some suburban markets are seeing increased rent growth as they started their recovery later.

    1. Portland Multifamily Market Report
      First Quarter 2017

      The Portland multifamily market softened slightly during the first quarter, but employment growth in the metro area continues to fuel strong demand, and rental rates continue to climb. Nearly 9,000 residential units were under construction in metro Portland at quarter's end, giving renters a wide menu of urban and suburban options. Conversely, buyers are finding significant upward demand pressure on prices, as the supply of units for sale remains low. Ongoing population and wage growth in Portland and the surrounding area portends higher rents and decreasing vacancies in the multifamily market in the coming quarters.

      The Bay Area apartment market continues to reach levels of unprecedented demand. While the location is a major attraction, the growing economy has been the main driving force. Venture capital funding for the U.S. has reached its highest level since 2000 at $65 billion. This has flooded the market with new jobs as nearly 60% of the VC funding has been injected into California companies, the majority of which are located in the Bay Area. As a result of the growing population and increased demand for housing, apartment rental rates continue to experience record highs.
