In the U.S., high levels of development activity and impressive market demand will buoy the multifamily property market. Investment activity in 2019 will also come close to the peak volumes achieved in recent years and exceed US$150 billion. Across much of Europe, strong demand and a robust economic backdrop mean that prospects for the rental housing market are broadly positive heading into 2019. With multifamily residents spending an average of 25% of incomes on rent, most markets have headroom to deliver further rent growth. Rising home sale prices will also curtail renters’ ability to move into homeownership.
