Rationale for
Apartment Investing

Demographic changes, changing attitudes towards home ownership and tighter mortgage underwriting continue to create a shift toward renting. The ratio of homeowners vs renters is shifting in favor of renters.

Additional demographic shifts such as the increase in the percentages of young professionals, “Echo Boomers”, together with increasing immigration, are bringing about households that overwhelmingly favor renting. They prefer renting due to its low maintenance nature and the mobility it provides. Last but not least, the continued trend to defer marriage until later in life has proved a boon in demand for apartment living.
