Market Intelligence: Q2 Midwest Update
Now Available On Demand
Slow-and-steady performance is a general expectation among Midwest metros and their multifamily markets. But with rising economic uncertainty and cooling year-over-year performance readings across many major U.S. markets, there has been newfound rental housing interest in the typically quiet and affordable Midwest region.
While cap rates have shown some increases in recent months, the Midwest markets remain among the nation's highest. Supply has increased above recent norms but remains well below the sharp increase seen in most major markets. But, generally, both modest economic growth and (in some markets) challenging migration trends inform an uncertain long-term outlook.
