According to the most recent release of US Census data, these are the top 10 cities with the largest population increase from July 1, 2017, to July 1, 2018. Whether you’re evaluating a market for a new deal, or currently hold a property in one of these markets, this is critical information to remain aware of. Population growth is a key factor to take into consideration when predicting multifamily trends. While an increase in population will naturally result in an increase for housing demand, that is not the only key factor to evaluate if the market is strong.
With an increasing population in the market, this can also be a good time to re-evaluate your strategies for current properties, such as raising rents, or perhaps consider refinancing? Remaining vigilant on market data is one of the defining factors of a wise investor or syndicator. The more knowledge you have, the better informed and opportune decisions you can make with your investments.
