U.S. Multifamily Outlook
Summer 2017

During this extreme hurricane season, the old post office motto comes to mind when describing the multifamily market: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can do much to dent the sector’s consistent performance.

Economic Consensus Masks Uncertainties

Economists largely agree that the U.S. economy will continue the moderate growth path it has traveled the last several years. But the consensus among prognosticators obscures a dilemma: The economy is behaving in ways it hasn’t in the past and nobody is entirely sure as to why. Among the issues vexing economists include why—when employment gains are so healthy—workforce participation remains low, while GDP growth and inflation remain subdued.
