Will Multifamily Real Estate Housing Crash in 2022?

I have some very strong predictions about whether there will be a multifamily real estate housing crash in 2022.

Will there be a multifamily real estate housing crash in 2022? Hell no! Here are the reasons:

  • We need to build 325,000 new apartment homes each year on average, which we haven't done since 1989. We only did 289k in 2020, which was an extremely active year by any standards.
  • We need to build over 4 million apartment homes by 2030. And another 10-12 million apartments need renovation during that time. We aren't even close to being on track.
  • Immigration is predicted to account for half of all new U.S. population growth through 2030 and immigrants mostly rent.
  • For millennials 22-37 most common form of living is renting.
  • Seniors are choosing the convenience of apartment living over ownership.
  • Renters in the U.S. are near 39 million people, which is about 1 in 8!
  • Even if home prices flatten or go down in 2022, which is highly doubtful, they still won’t go down anywhere near enough to then shift renters to buyers.

Normally, the Grace Hill chats, although very informative, usually end up focusing 90% on apartment marketing and only 10% on resident retention topics. I understand that the questions are user driven, but it always bugs me that we spend so much time on the ...
There are still some Multifamily Property Managers using DOS applications like Rent Roll and the AMSI DOS version. Many of you may be surprised that these products are still in use and will wonder why do people still use them? Well, frankly, they work, albeit with risks! Smaller, cost conscience firms find it difficult to justify spending the money for an upgrade when the old DOS system still gets the job done.The expense to upgrade to a new product can be a lot. Plus, new equipment, training an...
 Have you heard the phrase, "Perception is reality?" It's a phrase that is tossed about rather frequently, and I think it's time to shake up our perceptions a little bit. Once we've been in 'the biz' for any number of years, we become accustomed to certain situations, certain challenges, certain personalities, etc. In response, we develop personal systems, catch phrases, solutions that can easily address those certain situations, challenges, etc.  It's how we adapt. It's how ...
