The U.S. multifamily market is the golden child of the current investment cycle, outperforming other commercial real estate types and other alternative asset classes. Values and deal flows are at all-time highs, well above previous peaks. With greater opportunity, though, comes heightened challenges. More investor demand makes it challenging to find properties with upside at this stage in the cycle, and the sheer volume of opportunities is more than even the largest investors can thoroughly screen. And with scores of information sources vying for your attention, how can you cut through the noise to discern the truth?

In this interactive webcast, Greg Willett and Jay Parsons, share timely insights and sophisticated data science techniques used by leading multifamily investors weighing potential acquisitions to find smarter answers faster. This webcast will reveal how to estimate an asset’s revenue outlook, its value and its value-add potential – instantly without spending precious time uploading data and filling input fields. Learn about proven analytical methodologies for underwriting, understand the pros and cons of different approaches, and discover innovative ways to find value in today's challenging market conditions.
