MPF Research Parsons and Willett to Sit on Panels at RealShare Apartments


MPF leaders to serve as experts on the changing multifamily industry

(October 8, 2014) — MPF Research’s Director of Analytics & Forecasts Jay Parsons and Vice President Greg Willett will serve as panelists at this year’s RealShare Apartments 2014 conference held October 15-16 in Los Angeles, Calif.

During Mr. Parson’s session titled “The Next Generation Renter”, Mr. Parsons and other panelists will discuss how “the family of the multifamily industry is changing as family formation is delayed for millennials and home ownership is often out of reach. Also, because of swanky student housing, the next generation renter also has a taste for amenities from an early age. Hear how the next generation of renter is affecting development, property management, technology requirements and leasing strategies.”

Mr. Willett will be covering the economics of multifamily alongside two other panelists and together they will do a deep dive of “the state of the multifamily market, answering the questions: what inning are we in for this cycle, and where are we headed for multifamily in the next 16-18 months. How will the midterm election affect commercial real estate and how will multifamily fare as other asset classes emerge from the great recession? Where are interest rates headed and how do family formation and job trends change the outlook across the nation?”
