Market Intelligence: Capital Markets Update

Now Available On Demand

Apartment market performance has generally remained solid throughout the pandemic, in turn attracting more capital interest to the sector and away from other CRE alternatives such as office and retail. As capital concentrates in many of the nation’s primary markets, there has been an increase in investors chasing yield in alternative markets.

Join RealPage experts Jay Parsons and Carl Whitaker in a discussion with very special guest Jim Costello, SVP of Real Capital Analytics, about capital market trends, questions and topics including:

  • Overview of apartment market fundamentals and how performance levels are influencing capital market trends
  • How have capital market trends changed in response to the pandemic, and what changes are here to stay?
  • Insights into market-specific trends and what’s driving investment activity in different pockets of the country
  • What lies ahead for apartment investment – potential headwinds and tailwinds that may impact investment activity going forward
  • Which “Zoom Towns” are seeing increased apartment capital flow, and which might have long-term staying power?
