Does Dexter Need Modular Apartments?

Seattle Times, Prefab apartment complex clears review hurdle:

Seattle’s first prefabricated, modular apartment complex won an important approval this week, and the project’s backers say its first tenants could start moving in as soon as next May.

With the failure of Domaine does Dexter need more inventory?

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.

    I don’t understand the question. Its about competition and whether Unico thinks its product can compete with existing product. If Unico can come in with lower price points, better location and somewhat comparable product, it could perform much better than Domaine. If I were top choose to invest or lend to one, no question where I’d put my money.

    Um… isn’t there supposed to be a shortage of rentals in the area that are justifying recent price increases?

    OTOH, Domaine and Unico can do “group buys” on sharps disposal containers to reduce homeowner dues and rent simultaneously.

    I live nearby, loved the two IEDs in the homeless encampment last Sunday. Nothing says it’s time to get up like a building-rattling propane explosion.

    Chris, I agree, as an investor I’d want to go Unico, but I’d also question whether there is too much inventory in that area. However, the Unico inventory is quite different.
