Now Available On Demand
Join industry-leading economists for a discussion on key apartment performance indicators for markets from the Southwest desert in Arizona and Nevada through the Rocky Mountain states of Colorado, Utah and Idaho.
Many of these markets saw lots of inbound migration from coastal markets throughout 2020, driving solid market fundamentals.
Still, states like Idaho and Utah have seen the fastest economic rebound — these are the only two states that sit above pre-pandemic employment levels — further boosting rent growth and occupancy readings.
Meanwhile, Arizona markets like Phoenix and Tucson have emerged as some of the nation’s standout performers. Developers have keyed in on several metros in this region that may result in moderating longer-term performance.
Markets covered in this new and improved, interactive webcast include:
- Colorado Springs
- Fort Collins
- Las Vegas
- Salt Lake City
