Composition of Rental Housing and Ownership in Seattle, WA
- Rob Ross, Director of Product @TrueRoll
Housing affordability is a critical urban issue in the US, but policymakers are often hampered in their efforts to address the issue by a lack of sound data. Questions that seem straightforward - how many affordable units exist in Seattle? - are very difficult to answer in practice. In this white paper, TrueRoll leverages a variety of public and proprietary data sources to answer various questions about Seattle's housing stock, real property ownership, and rental trends. TrueRoll also provides the City of Seattle with a series of recommendations to improve the availability and reliability of data assets maintained by the City, as well as the King County Assessor's Office.
Our goal is to serve your government and its citizens with more accurate information. Unlike other solutions that promote disruptive audits every five years, TrueRoll offers a proactive approach to exemption monitoring that was specifically designed to make it easier for auditors and appraisers to do their jobs and to further a more transparent, equitable government.
