According to GeekWire, LinkedIn migration data indicates that Seattle techies are not leaving Seattle, unlike the “exodus” in Silicon Valley. The article by Talyor Soper shows that Seattle added 2.2 tech workers for every one that left, just below 2.5 for last year.
Our real estate view is that tech business growth will continue to be an important demand factor for Seattle housing. This is good for sellers and buyers need to be as thorough and nimble as ever.
Happy New Year!
