The 1-19 Unit Rent & Vacancy Report

Here are just a few of the problems this report can solve. Should you raise rents? How much? Are your rents and vacancies matching, beating, or lagging the market? Where are opportunities? Where are the most stable areas? Where has rent climbed the most, or least? How can I support my actual rents in a tax appeal?

Overview

This report, published each April, shows rents and vacancies in single-family rentals, multiplexes (2-4 unit apartments), and 5-19 unit apartment buildings in King and Snohomish counties. The report is based on our annual survey of more than 3,500 properties.
