Kidder Mathews Releases Latest Research on Eastern Washington Apartment Market

Posted In — News & Press | Press Releases

Max Frame of Kidder Mathews’ multifamily team led by Dylan Simon and Jerrid Anderson has released new research on the Eastern Washington apartment market.

The Q3 2023 Eastern Washington Apartment Market Dynamics report analyzes trends and the latest sales data from 20 Eastern Washington counties including Spokane, Benton, Franklin, Chelan, Yakima, and more. The study offers insights on each submarket to help guide investment decisions.

Since Q3 of 2022, total sales have remained stable on a quarterly basis; however, there has been a persistent decrease in sales volume. Among the 36 sales in Q1 and Q2, the majority of transactions that successfully closed were priced below $4 million (24 sales), with only one exceeding $20 million.

Cap rates experienced a significant increase, finally reaching the desired “6%+ range” as requested by buyers. However, it’s worth noting that despite this improvement, we observed a few sales of heavy value-add properties or properties with very low in-place rents at cap rates below 5.5%.

“Buyer and seller pricing expectations are gradually aligning, but the situation hasn’t fully resolved yet. Despite this, the demand from buyers to invest in Spokane remains steady, as evidenced by 11 out of 18 sales in Q2 occurring in Spokane County,” said Frame, Kidder Mathews’ Eastern Washington multifamily specialist.
