Apartment Demand Growth Amid Record Supply The Gray Report Podcast

    • Investing

As a historic wave of newly-built apartments continues beyond the one-year mark, elevated absorption numbers and data showing the first positive growth in occupancy in 2+ years are noteworthy signs of resilience in the apartment market. In the broader economy, lower jobs numbers and declining consumer credit suggest a pullback in consumer spending and (hopefully) lower inflation, but while consumers may balk at ever-pricier Big Macs or Frappuccinos, apartment housing is still in high demand.
