Why You Should Watch
We’re kicking off the ninth year of our current apartment market cycle with an in-depth, interactive discussion about the 2018 apartment market outlook.
Peak performance levels for both occupancy and rent growth appear to be in the rearview mirror. But results still look good measured against long-term historical standards. And demand influences are holding strong, opening the door for solid showings among those making the right investment and operational decisions.

- • The country’s near-term economic outlook
- • Urban core versus suburban performance variation
- • Class B workforce housing market dynamics
- • Construction trends
- • Investment capital flows
