The second installment of the MPF Research Live webcast series is now available to view on demand. The webcast, held May 31, featured MPF Research’s Greg Willett and Jay Parsons with special guest Mark Humphreys of Humphreys & Partners Architects.
In the free 30-minute session, these industry experts addressed:
- Early results on 2nd quarter 2016 apartment trends. Has the softened demand seen in 1st quarter extended into the peak leasing months? Willett and Parsons utilized real lease-transaction data to identify what (and where) you should worry about – and what/where you shouldn’t.
- Today’s market-rate apartment renters. Utilizing real rent roll data, the MPF Research economists examined the eight different types of apartment households. Who are they, what types of units do they rent and how much are they willing to pay?
- Apartment development trends. Leading apartment architect Mark Humphreys joined the webcast to discuss what’s hot and what’s not in apartment design, and whether he has seen any sign of a slowdown on the construction front.
