Market Intelligence: Q2 Florida Update
Join RealPage® market experts Carl Whitaker and Natalie Long as they cover apartment market fundamentals in, arguably, the nation’s hottest state for apartment demand — Florida.
The past year has been unlike any year before it in the Sunshine State, propelled by seemingly insatiable demand for all types of multifamily housing. Even some of the state’s smaller metropolitan areas along the coast are adding new residents and inventory at a pace not seen in at least a decade.
But whether demand in those smaller markets, in particular, can match the pace of new construction is a question that looms large. Meanwhile, performance in larger metros like Miami, Orlando and Tampa reflects a unique set of opportunities and challenges for each.
Markets in this educational update include:
- Cape Coral/Fort Myers
- Destin (Crestview)
- Deltona-Daytona Beach
- Fort Lauderdale
- Palm Bay
- Panama City
- Port St. Lucie
- West Palm Beach
