On this week's webcast, we brought in the expert who keeps tabs on all things single-family and multifamily alike.

The state of the multifamily and single-family markets shift over time, and keeping up with the latest trends is especially challenging as we navigate a volatile economy. On our most recent webcast, we brought in the expert who keeps tabs on it all: Ivy Zelman, CEO and Co-Founder of the foremost housing research firm in the nation, Zelman & Associates.

Willy Walker and Ivy discussed multiple topics including:

  • Why it is the single-family rental market's time to shine
  • How the pandemic has affected both the single-family and multifamily markets, and what the future holds for each
  • Which geographic areas are poised for greater investmen
  • ...and more.
