COVID-19: Impact on Capital Markets and New Development
Now Available On Demand
Will investors take a “wait-and-see” approach in the wake of COVID-19? The last decade has seen record levels of apartment sales and new construction. How quickly will the spigot turn off?
Join RealPage Chief Economist Greg Willett, VP/Deputy Chief Economist Jay Parsons and special guest Jim Costello, Senior Vice President at Real Capital Analytics for the live webcast, COVID-19: Impact on Capital Markets and New Development, where they’ll address what lies ahead and discuss:
- Do our fundamentals make us an attractive area for investment even during this crisis?
- What can we expect from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae? Will they fill the gap, and should other lenders step back?
- What happens with all that new construction in various stages of the pipeline?
- What types of deals are most likely to succeed, and what won’t work as well going forward?
No one has all the answers in these unprecedented circumstances, but in this engaging webcast, we will do our best to address your questions.
