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.

Looking Into Being a Landlord? Pick a College Town!

Have you been looking into the perks of being a landlord? Purchasing properties in college towns will typically convert into a rentable unit, no matter how the economy is doing in any particular area. College towns generally provide a steady flow of jobs for locals and school enrollments are on the rise with the unemployed going back to school to seek new job skills.

Along with the increased demand for available units, according to CNN Money, the cost of rent has continued to rise by 5% over the past 12 months, and we can expect the cost to continually increase. For buyers in the college town market, there are plenty of bargain deals out there and the closer to the campus, the better. According to Coldwell Banker’s College Home Listing Report for 2011, the typical 3 bed 2 bath home sold for less than $200,000 in nearly two-thirds of the college markets in the US, and in 1/4 of the towns, the same size home sold for under $150,000.

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.
