Market Intelligence: U.S. Summer Apartment Outlook

Apartment demand got off to an incredible start in 2024. As a result, many property owners are hoping for continued momentum as multifamily heads into prime leasing season. But at the same time, record supply has resulted in muted rent growth and declining occupancy. To make matters worse, elevated interest rates have made deals more difficult to pencil in, causing lower investment volume.

There is hope on the horizon, though. The most recent data indicates that modest improvement in momentum does appear to be emerging. Can it build throughout the 2024 peak leasing season?  Get insights at our webcast.

Join RealPage’s Carl Whitaker, Vice President and Chief Economist, and Arben Skivjani, Deputy Chief Economist and Director of Forecasting, for a lively discussion of the national apartment sector’s current status and near-term outlook.

Topics covered in this webcast include:

  • The economy and near-term demand signals
  • Metro-level performance leaders and laggards
  • Performance segmentation by product class
  • Construction activity
  • Investor appetite and property transaction stats
