U.S. Summer Apartment Market Outlook
Now Available On Demand
The apartment market got off to a solid start in early 2021. The improving U.S. economy helped stimulate substantial demand for apartments, resulting in continued tight occupancy, rebounding rents and meaningful investment volumes. At the same time, however, some pockets of softness remain, and big blocks of new supply are creating a competitive leasing environment for some product sectors in select metros and neighborhoods.

Discussion topics include:
- The economy and near-term demand signals
- Metro-level performance leaders and laggards
