Overall positive economic indicators and demographic trends bode well for 2018
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 18, 2018 – Overall positive economic indicators and demographic trends bode well for 2018. Is the multifamily market past its peak following retrenchment in 2017 and destined for a correction? Or does the sector bull run still have steam? A new market outlook report compiled by Yardi® Matrix concludes that growth will continue, albeit at a tepid pace, for the next 18 to 24 months.
“On a big-picture basis, demand for multifamily shows no signs of slowing,” the report says, citing the growing 20-to-34-year-old renter cohort, downsizing retirees, a moderate economic growth forecast and anticipated delivery of 360,000 new units in 2018.
The full report, one of three U.S. multifamily outlook reports that Yardi Matrix prepares annually, is available here.
