Third Quarter Numbers Helping to Extend ‘Golden Age of Multifamily
Renter demand for apartments continued to accelerate in the third quarter of 2017 as the market absorbed more than 70,000 units and the overall national vacancy rate for U.S. apartments continued to trend lower after turning sharply up at the end of last year.
“The third quarter (vacancy) numbers are a welcome sign (for owners) after the sharp increase at the end of last year. Overall, it was a strong third quarter, which was a nice surprise,” said Michael Cohen, CoStar director of advisory services, during this week’s State of the Multifamily Market Q3 2017 Review and Outlook. “We’re still in the golden age for multifamily, but we’re seeing signs of a gradual slowdown in the apartment market.”
