City of Wenatchee

Housing Needs Assessment & Market Demand Study

In 2016, the City of Wenatchee was facing significant housing supply and affordability challenges. Rents and housing prices were on the rise, and the local housing stock was misaligned with the area’s changing demographic profile. To support the development of strategies to address these challenges, BERK conducted a housing needs assessment and market demand study. The study analyzed demographic and market trends within the Wenatchee urban area and assessed the extent to which current and projected housing needs are being met. Particular emphasis was given to four priority household types: Senior/disabled, workforce, farmworker, and those in need of permanent supportive housing.

The Final Report is available online here.
