Seattle Rental Market – 2016 in Review

Seattle RentalThe Seattle rental market has continued to see increasing rents in 2016 over 2015, although as we wrote last month Seattle rents have shown signs of slowing or even going down towards the end of the year.  Seattle rental numbers cannot be gathered from one source.  When looking at the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS), the number of rented homes, the average rent, and average rent per square feet in Seattle all went up.  The NWMLS showed 1,094 vs 1,071 Seattle rentals in 2016 and 2015 respectively.  The average rent increased to $2,752 vs $2,588 from the prior year with the average rent per square feet increased to $2.38 from $2.00.  The NWMLS is mainly rentals from individual owners and does not include large Seattle apartment complexes.  In Downtown alone there was 20 new Seattle apartment buildings in 2015, 14 underway or completed in 2016, and 27 dues to be completed in 2017.  Thus the NWMLS is only a small portion of Seattle rentals.

The above picture property is a Seattle rental located on the north-end of the Pike Place Market.  The one bedroom, one bathroom condo has unobstructed views of the Sound, Market, and the Wheel. It is available for $3,675.

Arguments Over Mandating Section 8 Housing

Schack1_bigThere is a new apartment project being planned on Capitol Hill, on the corner of 14th Ave E & E Republican Street, that is said to be for renters looking for a boutique building to live in, with retail and a great walkable score. According to the Daily Journal of Commerce, new developers John Schack and Dugan Earl have formed a development and consulting  company in the Seattle area called Revolve, and will begin construction on their first project this summer. Finding the perfect site for the proposed 35 unit, 4-story apartment complex wasn’t easy. The dynamic due apparently spent 6 months analyzing  some 150 sites on Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, Columbia City and West Seattle; all urban areas predicted to continue blossoming with renters.

While they were knee deep in the search, they ran into a road block, and a big one at that. According to Schack, “once a property is listed, it’s blood in the water for piranhas.” They found themselves coming in second, and being beat to the punch when expressing interest in any given project, so they found an alternative option. They approached sites that were of interest to them that were off-market, and purchased a 10,183-square-foot Capitol Hill site in November 2011 that is soon to be the home of their first project. The building will have 33 one-bedroom units, 2 studios, 19 stalls for below ground parking, a courtyard for entertainment, and a roof top deck. For more news to come on when the project will be leasing units, visit Revolve’s news blog.
