  • CapRates reported are still in the mid 5% compared to 2015 in the high 5% range. 
  • $/unit Oct 16 YTD is a 10.0% increase over Oct 15 YTD.
  • $/SqFt Oct 16 YTD  is a 8.3% increase over Oct 15 YTD.
  • Oct 2016 YTD sales = $1736M vs. Oct 2015 YTD sales of $1998M

We’re still behind 2015 YTD sales numbers, however, we should be about even with 2015 FullYear gross sales due to a couple of large sales in November.

There is a noticeable slow-down in SFR sales in Portland.  We anticipate multi-units will reflect this with pricing and rent pressure moderating compared to 2016 YTD.

Interest rates have jumped.  Depending on the extent, this may put pressure on pricing.  In any case, for underwriting assume (as of today), loan rates in the mid 4% range (up from low 4% range).
