Seattle Market Digest: Keeping up with Seattle

Oppor­tu­ni­ties come to those in the know, but keep­ing up can be a daunt­ing endeav­or. The red-hot Seat­tle econ­o­my only adds to the chal­lenge. To the res­cue: Seat­tle Mar­ket Digest The Seat­tle Mar­ket Digest is a month­ly com­pi­la­tion of the ups and downs and com­ings and goings in greater Seattle’s retail, trav­el, real-estate devel­op­ment and…

Seattle Market Review: All That Glimmers is not Economic Gold

It’s been a while since I lament­ed the state of Seat­tle’s local econ­o­my and the con­tin­ued dec­i­ma­tion of the nation’s eco­nom­ic back­bone – small busi­ness­es, and with it the mid­dle class. So after a hia­tus due to some shuf­fling of work pri­or­i­ties accom­pa­nied by fits and starts, plus a recov­ery from knee surgery, Seat­tle Media…

Apolo­gies to reg­u­lar Seat­tle Mar­ket Review read­ers who access the reports from this site. Seat­tle Media Maven has been on a much-need­ed and most wel­come hia­tus.

Revving up for a Recovery: Seattle Market Review, October 2012

There is a lot going on in and around the mar­ket that the­o­ret­i­cal­ly is posi­tion­ing it to go full throt­tle once we get a go sig­nal on the recov­ery. While we wait, the Seat­tle mar­ket con­tin­ues to sput­ter along, look­ing one minute like the lead car and the next as run­ning on fumes. As not­ed…

Technology Sector Masks High Seattle Unemployment: Seattle Market Review, September 2012

After a jaw-drop­ping drub­bing at the first pres­i­den­tial debate, the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion dug deep for some good news and came up with a drop in the unem­ploy­ment rate, to 7.8%. Seat­tle Media Maven remains uncon­vinced and eager­ly awaits the adjust­ed fig­ures, like­ly to be released some­time after Novem­ber 6th. Accord­ing the Labor Depart­ment, about 15%…

Up, Down, Sideways – It’s Anyone’s Guess: Seattle Market Review, August 2012

While Seat­tle con­tin­ues to chalk up some impres­sive rank­ings and rev­enue suc­cess­es, the bot­tom line is that the recov­ery, if that is what you want to call it, has all but flat-lined with min­i­mal growth and lim­it­ed con­fi­dence across the nation. Recent news arti­cles high­light­ing weak real income, scarce jobs, inven­to­ries out­pac­ing sales and a…

Blue Skies Ahead: Seattle Market Review, June 2012

Signs of Life Sig­nal Sun­ny Seat­tle Future If you ignore the world around us and the con­tin­ued flail­ing of the nation­al econ­o­my, it appears that the Puget Sound region may be climb­ing out of the depths of the Great Reces­sion trough. Retail sales seem to be pick­ing up steam as the pri­ma­ry dri­vers of con­sumer…

Waiting for the Recovery to Drop Anchor: Seattle Market Review, May 2012

Pho­to by Phil Sny­der Every time it seems like the recov­ery may be about to drop anchor in our safe har­bor for at least a short vis­it, the dark storm of stag­nan­cy blows it back out to sea for a good thrash­ing, and in some instances, toss­ing it on the rocky shore and stop­ping move­ment…
