Growing apartment demand
Delayed marriages, an aging population and immigration are increasing a pressing need for new apartments, to the tune of 4.6 million by 2030. See how we can meet this demand.
our vision
about the research
We partnered with top researchers to estimate the demand for apartments in the future.

Descriptive current and historical demographic and housing data (such as the number of apartment residents and the size of the apartment stock) are NMHC tabulations of the most recently available American Community Survey microdata.

Economic and demographic trend and forecast data was drawn from Moody’s Analytics® supplemented by other sources including U.S. Census Bureau, Federal Reserve and other forecast surveys such as the Wall Street Journal Economic Forecasting Survey and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia Survey of Professional Forecasters. Property market data was derived from several sources including the U.S. Census Bureau, CoStar® Realty Information, CBRE® Econometrics and ESRI®.
