Succeed in competitive rental market with financing from hard money lenders

It’s official. Rents in Seattle, Washington are rising at a faster rate than in any other major city in the country.

As reported by the Seattle Times, typical monthly rent has surpassed $2000, up 9.7 percent in the last year and growing nearly four times the national average. Though thousands of new housing units are currently under construction, the Puget Sound region’s housing shortage is being felt by renters in the metro area who pay increasing percentages of monthly take home pay on their housing.

Renters may be feeling the pinch, but Seattle’s hot rental market is a boon for landlords. For those not yet in the rental market arena, now is an optimal time to invest.
