Market Intelligence - Southeast Region
Now Available On Demand
The Southeast region has been a popular spot for many renters looking to relocate from expensive gateway markets. Strong demographic tailwinds are seen in areas like Atlanta, Nashville and Memphis.
This has expanded into smaller markets over the past few years, with some experiencing a surge of capital interest that could drive prices up to noteworthy levels.
However, some downside risk is apparent in states such as Louisiana and Mississippi, which can often face natural disaster events that can disrupt performance metrics. Where does the risk and reward make sense and where does it not?
Markets in this new-and-improved interactive webcast include:
- Baton Rouge
- Columbus, GA
- Gulfport, MS
- Huntsville, AL
- Johnson City, TN
- Lafayette, LA
- Louisville, KY
