Question ID: 219468
I am looking for a provider of pipeline reporting for the multifamily
real estate market in the greater Seattle metro area.  A sample of a
provider that provides adequate and complete information for other
cities is M|PF research (  M|PF does sell a
Seattle report, but, unlike in many of the other cities it services,
it does not have the detail we need.

This pipeline report should contain detailed information by submarket,
including the following:

* Names, addresses, property developers, number of units and
completion dates of recently completed apartment complexes
* Names, addresses, property developers, number of units and
completion dates of under construction or planned apartment complexes
* Average rents for apartments in various Seattle submarkets (ideally,
average monthly rent, % change year-on-year, average rent for Studio,
1BR, 2BR and 3BR, but I am flexible on this point)
* Average overall occupancy for apartments in various Seattle

Please contact me with any questions.

Hello, and thanks for a challenging question (actually, several
challenging questions).

I found a company in Seattle that has the information you need. 
Specifically, they told me:


Thank you for your interest in our research. We publish all of the
data you asked about, as follows:
The Apartment Vacancy Report ($435/year, published April and October)
provides rent and vacancy data for 20-unit and larger apartments for
60+ neighborhoods in our region, by bedroom size and also by age
group. Each neighborhood page includes 4 years of historical trends
for overall rents and vacancies as well as detailed current
information. The report also shows absorption trends, turnover rates,
days vacant, parking charges, water charges (whether owner or
resident) and more. See
The Apartment Development Report ($275/year, published april and
October) provides a list of all recently completed 20+ unit
developments as well as planned development for the next couple of
years. The report shows statistical trends and forecasts by
neighborhood for 60+ neighborhoods and also lists the project address,
number of units, scheduled completion, and developer. (we do keep some
property addresses confidential if developers are still negotiating
transactions) See
Please contact me if you have any other questions. You can order these
from our web site: 
Thank you.

From the sound of Mr. Scott's reply, Dupre and Scott have all the
information you need for the Seattle market.

Good luck with the other markets--note I added four more that are of
secondary importance to me (Baton Rouge, El Paso, Portland and
Sacramento) and they're priced accordingly.  Hope you're finding these
fun challenges.
