Dylan Simon -- Colliers International
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 $3M 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.

Apartment Market Weathers the Storm of New Supply

Apartment Market Weathers the Storm of New Supply | Dylan Simon -- Colliers International | Scoop.it
Dylan Simon's insight:

"High occupancy rates are helping keep apartment rents high and rising. 'Rent growth—while below the cycle’s peaks—has outperformed many investors’ expectations,' says Willett. Same-property rents for new leases climbed 2.6 percent in first quarter compared to the year before. That’s about the same as the rate of rent growth has been over the last four quarters, according to RealPage."
