In 2018 there were many compelling market indicators for Seattle. With low housing inventory and tech’s recent revival in the Pacific Northwest, the market seemed to be headed in the right direction. Bisnow’s Dees Stribling goes on to say, “Seattle has evolved into one of the country's major growth markets, but now the city has to deal with the various headaches of success…The most salient challenges involve continuing to attract talent to the city, and keeping the city affordable to lower- and middle-income residents.”
How can a city and community continue to attract top talent while also being affordable for low and middle-income residents? It’s a difficult topic to tackle with no obvious answer in sight.
Up and down the West Coast, tech and foreign investment have been strong market indicators in recent years and Seattle is no exception. In early 2018 it was reported that the city was the number three city of foreign real estate investors.
Bisnow’s Allison Nagel goes on to say, “Seattle's growth in 2018 will be driven by continued expansion of tech companies and increased investment from Asia, according to American Life CEO Henry Liebman.
Landing both foreign investment and tech talent is the recipe for success, and Seattle will aim to do both in the coming years. Join us as we tackle many of the pressing issues facing this vibrant market.
