Series: Market Update
Market Intelligence - Southern California
Join industry-leading economists for a discussion on key apartment performance indicators for markets in the Pacific coastline.
The Southern California apartment market has displayed huge variances from metro-to-metro over the past year. An outwards flight from Los Angeles and Anaheim, in particular, resulted in soaring occupancy among the non-coastal, more affordable regional markets such as Riverside and Bakersfield.
However, Los Angeles and Orange County have recently shown some stabilization and the rest of the region is in good shape from a performance standpoint. Still, headwinds exist and include substantial economic losses as well as considerable political pressure.
Markets covered in this new-and-improved, interactive webcast include:
- Los Angeles
- San Diego
- Santa Maria
