Series: Market Update
Up Close and Local: Chicago
Chicago’s apartment occupancy rate is strong by the historical standards seen locally, and ongoing construction is reasonably tame relative to the levels of building activity occurring in many other metros. Thus, the metro could be positioned to weather a period of slower housing demand without necessarily suffering too much damage to key apartment sector fundamentals.
Join RealPage analysts Greg Willett and Adam Couch for an examination of how metro Chicago’s apartment market is faring in the age of COVID-19.
Discussion topics also include:
- The local economy
- Property transaction volumes and pricing
- Neighborhood-level standout performers and comparative laggards
Greg facilitates the alignment of the firm’s technology and analytics solutions with rental housing sector needs and opportunities. He is well versed on rental housing market fundamentals and activity nationally, by metro and in individual neighborhoods. Greg is active in industry organizations such as the National Multifamily Housing Council, the Urban Land Institute and the National Apartment Association. He provides commentary for national and local business media.
