2007 Multifamily Trends Conference

The 2007 Multifamily Trends Conference was held in San Francisco yesterday. Hessam Nadji, Managing Director of Research for Marcus and Millichap, released a positive forecast for the multifamily industry. In summary, the U.S. economy has remained resilient, construction costs are easing back a bit, demographics, immigration, home affordability, and job growth continue to be the key drivers of multifamily demand. Overall, it appears the economy is robust enough to absorb an event of this type (in comparison to a shock such as the events of 9/11). Barrier is optimistic that our current growth rate will not only continue, but accelerate as the market eases past this bump.
