Market Update:

Many investors are asking themselves: Is now the time to be active on the market or should we wait and see if there are better buying opportunities in the future? While 2023 has had its challenges with rising interest rates, we feel there will be opportunities for the disciplined investor over the next 12-24 months. Here are 3 reasons for our confidence in the multifamily space:

1. Rental Demand Remains Strong. Rent growth in the Midwest market we invest in continue to be projected between 2-4% in the next 12 months. The Midwest and Northeast have fared the best over the past 12 months given their more modest construction pipeline.

2. Multifamily Loan Maturities. The multifamily market faces over $4B in loan maturities between now and October. With many of these loans now maturing at a time where interest rates are significantly higher property owners initially anticipated, some sponsors will need to sell instead of refinanicng as they originally planned.

3. Rising Cost of Home Ownership. The reality of owning a home is taking longer for many first-time homebuyers. In fact, 70% of Gen Z feels homeownership is out of reach. With home prices continue to rise ($415K Median Sale vs $406K median sale last year) & interest rates on the rise (6.6% vs. 3.75% last year), owning a home is becoming more of a challenge.
