Multifamily investment activity is expected to surge back—not that it really went away—following the defeat of Prop 10 in November. JLL’s Chris Benton, who recently joined the firm as SVP of multifamily investment in the Century City office, is advising institutional investors and says that the appetite is strong for multifamily opportunities in L.A. In addition to renewed confidence in the L.A. market, Benton says that the healthy economy will continue to drive activity.

“Los Angeles multifamily investment activity will be very active for a variety of reasons, mainly the defeat of Prop 10 as there is no more uncertainty there, at least for now,” Benton tells GlobeSt.com. “Additionally, there is lots good news on the jobs front, with several tech giants recently announcing expansion plans. Four of the seven largest companies in the world are expanding or opening new offices in the Silicon Beach area in 2019. The disparity of owning to renting is still a massive gap, and its won’t be closing anytime soon.”
