Seattle, WA

Apartment
Vacancy in the Seattle apartment market ended 2016 at just 5.1%, a rate that should not be a source of concern. While the rate was up 30 basis points since the third quarter, it was down 20 year-over-year. Rent growth numbers seem particularly noteworthy. While the fourth quarter’s $1,601 and $1,539 per month asking and effective averages represented gains of fully 10.5% and 11.0% for the year, growth rates for the quarter alone were negative at 0.2% and 0.3%.
