Housing Preservation Guide
The Housing Preservation Guide is a "road map" for assessing the needs of individual affordable housing properties and entire portfolios, as well as developing workable plans for preserving that housing. See below for more resources.

To ensure quality affordable housing, our Asset Management unit monitors existing projects to ensure that our City-funded units are healthy and livable for low income and workforce tenants. Monitoring includes an annual review of operations. The unit also receives and manages a broad range of real estate transactions (transfers of ownership, refinancing, work outs, subsidy awards, intervention).

The unit offers technical assistance on sustainable building to promote durable and energy- and water-efficient buildings, and can be a resource on other conservation programs.

Managing Bed Bug Problems
The cost of managing bed bug infestations is a growing problem in Seattle’s housing facilities and is impacting management and operating costs in OH funded properties. Developing a plan and utilizing the resources available are necessary steps to controlling problems and the associated costs. For more on bed bugs, download "All you need to know about Bed Bug Beddy."
