Dylan Simon -- Kidder Mathews
I specialize in the sale of apartment buildings in Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region.  I focus on the sale of both apartment buildings and developable land ranging from $1M to $100M. I am passionate about real estate investment and development, economics, technology and urbanism. Through brokerage I assist apartment investors and developers in achieving the highest possible levels of return and build an advisory relationship that lasts ownership life-cycles instead of just a transaction.

Over 100,000 Apartment Units are Coming!

Over 100,000 Apartment Units are Coming! | Dylan Simon -- Kidder Mathews | Scoop.it
Dylan Simon's insight:

Trends toward urbanization that began to take shape in the last decade look as though they will continue for some time. Developers plan to add more than 60,000 apartment units in urban neighborhoods in the next several years. Yet the story doesn’t end there, as another +40,000 apartments units are planned for otherwise suburban markets.

 

Understanding the potential impact of this new development before it happens is essential to predicting the trajectory of the region’s apartment investment markets, but first you must learn the what, where, and when of new apartment deliveries.
