Multifamily Most Resilient Property Sector to Recessions


March 7, 2019

  • U.S. multifamily property rents declined less than those of office and industrial properties during the 2001 economic recession and their growth rate was considerably higher post-recession.

  • During the 2008-2009 recession, multifamily rents were more resilient than those of office, industrial and retail.

  • Multifamily rents have outperformed those of the other major property sectors during and after the 2008-2009 recession in three ways. The sector experienced the lowest level of rent decline, the fastest recovery to pre-recession peaks and the longest post-recession period of rent growth.
