As the Southeast United States continues to attract prominent companies and their workforce, there is an ongoing need to house this influx of new residents. Sometimes, a single-family home is not the best choice. The job market uncertainties, along with financial issues and other concerns, preclude many potential homeowners from making extended mortgage commitments. Real estate expert M Patrick Carroll, who recently expanded his investment portfolio, understands these changes and evolving challenges.
According to Carroll, multifamily housing communities provide flexible, affordable living options. These amenity-rich metro area complexes offer a blend of design, aesthetics, and functionality. Offered at varied price points, multifamily communities present a good option for workers in many industries.
To stay abreast of multifamily housing sector trends, the BisNow Annual Multifamily Conference: Southeast will bring together leaders from all industry segments. Set for Thursday, November 18 at the Hilton Atlanta, the event will offer market insights from respected commercial real estate investors, developers, and other experts.
Property owners, developers, brokers, and recognized experts will discuss specific aspects of multifamily housing operations. Topics will include market evaluation, building design trends, and construction safety updates.
Industry experts will spotlight affordable multifamily housing solutions within the Southeast United States market. Discussions of condo sales and build-to-rent trends are also planned.
Targeted panel discussions will present different perspectives on the multifamily housing market. Attendees will have opportunities to build their professional networks and execute business growth strategies.
The BisNow Annual Multifamily Conference: Southeast showcases Bisnow’s leadership in the commercial real estate business services industry. This dynamic organization is active in 50 metropolitan markets throughout North America, the UK, and Ireland.
Each year, Bisnow sponsors multiple themed regional market events. At each conference, real estate industry leaders share insights on market trends and spotlight emerging opportunities.
Atlanta-based CARROLL’s M Patrick Carroll, an accomplished commercial real estate investor and developer, will present insights on the Southeast market outlook. Carroll, who has demonstrated success in this regional sector, has previously shared his expertise at other Bisnow events.
In July 2021, M Patrick Carroll spoke at the BisNow South Florida Deal Flow and Investment Strategies Summit. Held in Miami, the one-day event brought together commercial real estate industry executives and related businesses. Carroll’s engaging presentation focused on Florida’s continued multifamily housing market growth.
M Patrick Carroll’s extensive multifamily housing sector experience has fine-tuned his real estate market analysis skills. He recently recognized that a wide-ranging urban-to-suburban migration is underway.
This large-scale market shift indirectly resulted from 2008’s Great Recession. Following that economic upheaval, many residents gravitated to urban centers offering attractive amenities. Nearby employment, retail, and dining options further enhanced the residents’ quality of life.
In 2021, reverse migration has begun. Consumers are heading back to the suburbs, searching for more affordable housing while prioritizing easily accessible outdoor spaces. However, they do not want to lose their city homes’ conveniences and amenities.
Many incoming residents, accustomed to working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, want a home with upgraded Wi-Fi capabilities. A growing number of employers, along with field-based service personnel, also value this low-overhead business services option.
Taken together, these factors point to increasing demand for homes with roomy floor plans that can accommodate a home office. Residents want to move their computers off the kitchen or dining table and into a dedicated workspace.
With ever-increasing workplace demands and family commitments, residents often find themselves with less time to relax. They want to spend their precious downtime with their families and engage with the outdoors rather than on maintenance tasks.
These important quality-of-life criteria drive higher demand for multifamily community choices. Multifamily housing developers, often backed by investors, design communities that appeal to today’s discerning consumers. Proactive investors dedicate the financial resources to complete needed upgrades.
Two additional Southeast commercial real estate experts will offer insights on this expanding regional marketplace. During this informative exchange, panelists will discuss major metropolitan markets such as Atlanta, Charlotte, and Nashville.
