Kidder Mathews Releases Latest Research on Eastern Washington Apartment Market

Posted In — Market Research | Trend Article

The Q2 2024 Eastern Washington Apartment Market Dynamics report analyzes trends and the latest sales data from 20 Eastern Washington counties including Spokane, Benton, Franklin, Chelan, and Yakima. The study offers insights on each submarket to help guide investment decisions.

The report was researched and compiled by Vice President Max Frame, a member of a multifamily team at Kidder Mathews led by Dylan Simon and Jerrid Anderson.

“Although we are still in a volatile market, we continue to see a lot of interest from buyers in expanding their presence in Eastern Washington, as witnessed in 16 2024 Q1 sales, which is right in line with what we have seen since Q4 of 2022,” said Frame, Kidder Mathews’ Eastern Washington multifamily specialist.

In Q1 2024, there were signs of a notable correction in cap rates, with an average in-place cap rate of 6.2%, marking a significant increase of 90 basis points compared to the previous year. Despite ongoing interest from investors, overall sales volume decreased substantially, and overall volume reached just $25 million, a 62% decrease from the previous quarter. Hopes for interest rate cuts were dampened, with expectations now pushed to 2025.
