Market Intelligence - Fall Student Apartment Market Update
Fall 2021 got off to an exceptionally slow start as the pandemic’s impacts spilled well beyond Fall 2020. But a late-season leasing surge resulted in a much better outcome than the spring months would have suggested. While national statistics indicate stabilization and improvement, however, individual campus-level performance varies considerably. Summaries for both national and campus-level trends will be provided.
With Fall 2021 in the rearview mirror, however, operator focus is quickly moving to Fall 2022. As such, the second part of this webcast will review the expected supply pipeline, potential demand headwinds/tailwinds, and discuss other influences on the upcoming leasing season.
