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.

Dylan Simon's insight:

Unexpected trends in housing preferences among Millennials have driven foreign investment in industrial properties:

Matrix Monthly report predicts metro-level multifamily rent growth will trend toward the median in the coming year.
Dylan Simon's insight:

Hold out judgement on slowing rent growth for Spring! "YOY rent growth has remained between a high of 3.0% and a low of 2.4% in the past year, following two years of above-trend increases. Yardi expects rent growth to remain in the 2.5% range but believes the next few months will provide a better idea of rent trends for 2017, as rent-growth trends flatten during the winter."

Americans are moving house much less than they used to, and age has a lot to do with it | Dylan Simon -- Colliers International | Scoop.it
Dylan Simon's insight:

"The Puget Sound area is one of the exceptions to this trend of slowing migration. Of the more than 3,100 counties in the nation, none saw a bigger jump in the number of movers from other counties last year than Pierce and Snohomish..... King County also saw an increase in net migration last year."
