Affordable rentals vanish
Seattle Times, Affordable rentals vanish as apartments go condo:
Renters across the Puget Sound region are feeling a similar pinch. Nearly 7,000 apartments in the area were converted to condos last year.
Few conversions, though, will have as much impact as the one at West Ridge Park.
Hardly an affordable rental, but I hear that my old apartment, The Carroll Apartments, is going condo. Before moving out I explicitly made a point of contacting the owner to ensure they weren’t going to convert because I liked living there so much but alas I guess the temptation is too high.
