Bisnow Multifamily Annual Conference Pacific Northwest

The Commercial Real Estate industry fared well in 2017 but 2018 is positioned for explosive multifamily & residential growth in many of the Pacific Northwest's hottest markets. 

 

We are seeing regional and local developers make strong plays in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle has been a rising star among the pack. Mike Rosenberg of the Seattle Times writes, "Seattle is an outlier — everywhere else is experiencing growth that’s slightly or moderately above average for that region, while prices here are increasing nearly three times as fast as the historical average." Seattle has garnered significant attention from residential and multifamily debt and equity investors, while markets such as Portland as growing as well. 

 

Portland residential market has grown increasingly tighter in the past few years. New inventory is coming online, however, vacancy rates remain low. Jon Bell of the Portland Business Journal writes, "If you break Portland's inventory down by the number of houses for sale, there were 5,671 active listings in January 2014. That number was 3,518 this past January (2018), according to RMLS." The tight market is forcing developers, realtors and potential homebuyers to consider their options with regard to price, timing and location. 

 

What You'll Learn

1) Hot markets to invest in

2) Approaches to the affordable housing & sustainability

3) Redevelopment and repositioning
4) Permitting, planning and entitlement

5) Transit implications and regional connectivity 

 

Join us we discuss many of the pressing issues facing the space! For questions please email Chris.Wainwright@Bisnow.com.
