Brad Hamel of Alliance to Speak at Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: New England in Boston

On October 12, over 400 of New England’s most prominent developers, investors, owners and operators will come together to discuss what has become one of the hottest real estate markets in the country at the Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: New England in Boston. In its third year, this event discusses the urban and suburban rental, condo and mixed-use market across New England and what supply versus demand balance means for multifamily investors, owners and operators. Other topics touched on include the national and regional economic outlook, the debt and equity landscape, new developments and value-add strategies that are paying off. In addition, this year will include a keynote from Robert DeWitt, Vice Chairman and CEO of GID and Jack Manning, President and CEO of Boston Capital.

The Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forums across the U.S. bring together over 6,000 multifamily owners, investors, managers and developers to create an in-person marketplace for learning, discovery, networking and deal making. The sessions address the major issues affecting the apartment and condo markets today, and the networking allows multi-housing principals to meet, talk and source deals and investment capital.

In 2017 and 2018, the amount of supply coming to market will add additional burden to what already is a highly competitive rental marketplace. Going forward, cash flow and net operating income management may become increasingly difficult, and lower quality locations / properties may suddenly be harder to keep leased up, at least at today’s rates. What strategies and tactics are best to manage apartment properties in an arguably retracting economic environment?
