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.

Treasury yields plunged by the most since Brexit on Tuesday as Italy’s political crisis spurred investors to seek out the safety of US government debt and ratchet down the odds of Federal Reserve rate hikes.
Dylan Simon's insight:

"There is now a nearly 30 per cent chance the US central bank shelves a June rate increase, which last week looked like a certainty, according to probabilities derived from Fed funds futures. The turbulence also casts doubt on whether the Fed will raise interest rates three times this year, as it predicted in December. So far, the Fed has raised rates once in 2018."

Dylan Simon's insight:

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

"Over the past 36 months, investors focused on long-term holds acquired many core assets...leaving fewer properties available for sale and leading to investors taking more care in deciding where to next deploy capital to get the best returns."
