Experts say: Condo boom just starting

Seattle PI, Condo boom just starting, experts say:

Williams, a Seattle company that works with home developers, set the tone with its invitation, noting that Seattle’s 228 households per square mile downtown lags far behind the 680 per square mile in downtown Vancouver, B.C., the 701 in San Francisco and the 3,223 in New York.

Wow, we certainly do have a long way to go to catch up with some of those denser cities but I still think the market is a little over priced right now and inventory is piling up.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Funny how the person they refer to works for Williams Marketing; of course they’re going to say the boom is just starting. Their well being depends on a budding condo industry.
