Small Multifamily Investment Snapshot — September 2023
Through the first half of 2023, capital market realities continued testing the resiliency of the small multifamily subsector.
More than a year after the Federal Reserve began its monetary tightening cycle, commercial real estate investors are still adjusting to the higher cost of capital. While market disruptions have weakened performance, the scope of the impact has remained limited.
This year, the rapid recalibration of risk and pricing of small multifamily assets has been widespread. But, as buyers and sellers navigate new challenges, bright spots have emerged. Amid a corrective environment, the operational profile of the small multifamily subsector has held strong, with rent collection trending higher and expense ratios normalizing.
While macroeconomic headwinds may not recede soon, tenant dependability, the core strength of small multifamily, has proven to be a powerful antidote to financial market storms.
