Market Intelligence: Q3 National Multifamily Update
Now Available On Demand
As summer continues to heat up across the country, so does the nation's apartment market. The past few months have shown the industry is in truly unprecedented times with demand from renters and investors at all-time highs.
But there are emerging headwinds: With occupancy holding at record levels, absorption capacity is hitting a ceiling. Rent growth remains robust but many are wondering if a peak level has been reached. And investment activity ― while supported by excellent performance fundamentals ― has its own set of questions, including pricing challenges and quickly tightening interest rates. Lastly, there appears to be a disconnect between economic performance and near-term economic expectations with many fearing a near-term economic downturn.
