Market Intelligence: U.S. Summer & Q3 Update
Now Available On Demand
This is the time of year when apartment operators will make or miss 2023 budgets — peak summer leasing season.
Last year, demand didn’t heat up as much as it typically does in summer. Are we seeing a repeat in 2023, or is demand returning to normal, seasonally strong levels? And what about all those new lease-ups delivering in 2023?
Join RealPage® SVP & Chief Economist Jay Parsons and Senior Director of Research & Analysis Carl Whitaker as they review key market stats and offer their thoughts on the forecast for the second half of 2023 — and how those final months of the year will shape the 2024 outlook.
Discussion questions include:
- What does lease-up velocity look like so far, and how does that impact the existing market in terms of both occupancy and rent growth?
- What economic influences drive the nation’s apartment landscape, and how are these economic shifts influencing the investment landscape?
- What will come of the 1M+ market-rate apartment units in the pipeline?
- How are income and expense metrics shaping up as groups prepare for an interesting budgeting season?
