"Demand for apartments is 300% higher than ever before" according to Reis, Cushman & Wakefield Research.
Market forces driving that demand remain strong in 2019:
Empty nesters want to rent
Seniors want to rent
Millennials want to rent
Student housing growing as enrollment grows
Tax incentives for renting remain
Apartment supply and demand is health for investment
Rising cost of ownership
