Three apartment markets are best positioned to handle Amazon HQ2

Among the remaining metro contenders for Amazon’s second headquarters, only a few have apartment markets that could comfortably handle the swell of 50,000 additional workers.

In a new analysis, MPF Research tallies vacant and under-construction unit volumes to identify the three apartment markets best positioned for Amazon HQ2.

Apartment supply volumes peak at a 30-year high in 2017

Completion volumes hit a three-decade high in 2017, with more than 395,000 units coming online across the nation’s 120 largest markets. Leading the top 10 metros for annual supply were Dallas, New York and Houston.

In 2018, U.S. completion volumes are expected to ease, but remain above historical norms.

Garden apartments lead rent growth

Garden apartments are seeing greater rent increases than their mid- and high-rise counterparts. What factors are driving these low-rise structures to outperform?

In a new report, RealPage chief economist Greg Willett looks to influences on market fundamentals to analyze pricing power by building height.

Indianapolis maintains apartment performance, despite stream of supply

Indianapolis’ absorption levels have translated into consistent apartment market performance, even as developers continue to bring a steady stream of supply online.

In a new report, RealPage analyzes demand-driving influences, submarket-level performances and supply trends.

In Boston, job growth picks up momentum

In recent months, hiring has ramped up in Boston. In the year-ending November 2017, the metro added 48,000 positions to rank among the nation’s leaders for job gains. What employment sectors are driving the trend?

A new, in-depth jobs report looks at industry-level growth, as well as influences on Boston job creation.
