Zillow Reports Rentals Continue to Outshine Housing Market

According to Zillow’s Real Estate Market Report in February, the median price in rent had risen 2% since February 2011, and home values had continued to fall, dropping 4.5% during the same time period. Zillow’s Rent Index illustrated that the year over year gains for an estimated 68% of metropolitan markets measured by the ZRI, and only 8% of metro areas covered by the Zillow Home Value Indexsaw home values rise.

Seattle Rental In Leschi Neighborhood

Today’s rental market is continuing to heat up, with an emphasis on areas where home values have consistently been declining. Foreclosures have been at the forefront in keeping home values down, with foreclosure re-sales making up an  estimated 20.3% of all sales in the month of February. Zillow experts have said that we’ve made it through the worst of the housing market recession, but with the enormous inventory of foreclosures and unemployment are all still factors to overcome on the rise to recovery.

New Scam in the Seattle Apartment Market

According to the Seattle Times, there’s a new scam in the housing market. Online scammers advertise listed homes and foreclosed properties as for rent on popular rental websites such as Craigslist, with potential renters sending a deposit before receiving the keys. Be wary if the deal looks to be good to be true and/or the “property manager” asks you to wire funds through Western Union or Moneygram without letting you see the rental unit. For more details and tips, please read the article here.
