Seattle Capitalization Rates Have You Down?

Then look no further than the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula!

Just a short ferry ride west of the Seattle metro area, Kitsap County is truly a diamond in the investment property rough. As the market returns with a vengeance, investors who limit their search to primary markets are blind to some of the incredible opportunities in secondary markets like ours.

At the end of the day, we’re all after the same thing, a solid return on a quality investment property, and Seattle is running out of both. Cities like Bremerton, Silverdale, Port Orchard, and Poulsbo, however, have been flying under the radar which means great deals are still to be had in this steadily growing market. Generally speaking, CAP rates for Kitsap County investment properties average at least a half-a-point higher than equivalent King County properties (and oftentimes even moreso). 

With interest rates at or near all time lows, a properly leveraged investment property could produce cash-on-cash returns competitive with even the most attractive asset classes. 

Eventually, the real estate capital will get smart and start spreading out from Seattle, but by that time it will be too late. Now is the perfect time for you to benefit from the gap between investment capital and investment property returns. Don’t be a sheep and follow the herd – be a wolf and lead the pack! Invest in Kitsap today, ride the positive cash flows for a couple years, and sell when the competition finally takes notice and drive CAP rates back down. 

These unique conditions won’t last long, so act now and start looking for the right addition to your portfolio today! Start by checking out our managed and non-managed properties for sale/lease.
