Apartment Demand Paces Elevated Construction

Elevated Development Slate Softening Apartment Vacancy; Late Recovery Metros Shine with Runway for Future Growth

  Underlying demand for apartments remains strong as a robust labor market and positive demographic trends support healthy unit absorption, despite mounting supply pressure. Moving forward, modest performance gains are expected on the national level as the market continues to digest the aggressive development pipeline.
Job growth positive across the board, though tight labor conditions restrains further gains.
Late recovery markets with manageable construction outlook consistently outperforming, particularly in the Class B and C segments.
Cash-flow oriented buyers mixing up investment strategies in search of yield. Properties in first-ring suburbs or secondary/tertiary locations will be highly sought after.
