Millennials Driving Multifamily Sector Boom: Valuation Magazine

 CHICAGO (March 21, 2017) – Millennials have postponed home buying and are now in their peak renting years, creating a demand for multifamily properties that has pushed the sector to record-growth levels with no sign of slowing, according to an article published in Valuation magazine’s first quarter 2017 issue.

Valuation magazine is a quarterly publication of the Appraisal Institute, the nation’s largest professional association of real estate appraisers.

Read “Strength in Numbers” in Valuation magazine’s first quarter 2017 issue.

Also in this issue:

“On the Right Track” focuses on California’s high-speed rail project, which is now under construction after decades of planning. The valuation and acquisition of the thousands of acres needed for the rail’s right of way can be an appraiser’s dream job or greatest challenge.

“Uncommon Ground” examines the opportunities the valuation of ground leases can offer appraisers. Their expertise can provide input for the initial lease, for the later lease renegotiation and for the resolution of disagreements through arbitration.

The late Thomas P. Morlan III, MAI, SREA, SRA was recognized as a Volunteer of Distinction in November.  Mr. Morlan was a dedicated and passionate appraiser.  He was very involved in the Hoosier State Chapter and will be missed.
