Last year saw strong demand for multifamily properties. This year will bring more strength, but the sector will start experiencing increasing vacancy. As 2016 ramps up, multifamily investors will need to carefully consider which markets will stretch their dollar the furthest.
Cities in the West and the South hold the highest ‘buy’ ratings from market experts, with the exception of markets with oil-reliant economies such as Dallas-Fort Worth, an expected pain point for multifamily investment in 2016.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
