U.S. Apartment Market Meets Expectations in 4th Quarter


The first nine months of 2011 were very good for the U.S. apartment market, but what happened in the fourth quarter?

Did the U.S. apartment market experience a little holiday surprise in Q4 or was it pretty much what we expected?

Greg Willett joins me to examine the results in this special video edition of Apartment Market Dynamics.
