New research from Hoyt Advisory Services, commissioned by the National Multifamily Housing Council and the National Apartment Association, paints a dire picture of apartment availability between now and 2030. According to the report, the U.S. housing market will need 4.6 million new apartment homes across a range of price points by 2030.
Hot off the presses, NAA's new research publication, Apartment Market Pulse, is now available. Using data and statistics from multifamily housing research firms and the federal government, it offers a brief snapshot of current conditions in both the national apartment market and the U.S. economy.
The National Apartment Association (NAA) has launched a national grassroots campaign focused on advocating for smart tax policy that promotes economic growth, job creation, and investment in neighborhoods and communities.

Package delivery volume could increase this year at affordable housing, B and C communities as a result of a discount offer made recently by Amazon. The Amazon deal targets consumers with a valid EBT card, offering them a Prime membership for $5.99 per month, a drop from the standard $10.99 per month or $99 annual fee. Analysts suggest that the discount is designed to entice "Wal-Mart" shoppers and was crafted in response to the retail giant’s efforts to strengthen its e-commerce traffic.
It’s time for the second quarter Market Momentum Survey, produced by NAA Research and RealPage, Inc. Will Atlanta, Dallas and Washington, D.C., maintain their top spots?
