Our first data talk of 2014 opened with a focus on the multifamily rental market. Mark Obrinsky took us through the National Multi Family Housing Council data. He discussed how he uses publicly available data from sources such as the census and HUD to inform his outlook and projections for this market. Mr. Obrinsky also explained how he works with inconsistent data.
Jamie Woodwell also commented on some of Mark’s observations about publicly available multifamily data sources. Jamie Woodwell’s presentation focused on the financing of multifamily properties, using original data gathered by the Mortgage Bankers Association from its members. Mr. Woodwell also discussed how financing sources have changed over time, and what to look for in the future.
