The Phoenix apartment market is officially on fire. In the first half of the year, sales volumes for multifamily communities with 100-plus units increased 20% and represented $3.02 billion in total investment activity, according to research from CBRE that GlobeSt.com has seen exclusively. The investment activity is the capital recognition of significant population and job growth Phoenix has been experiencing for the last several years.

“It is all about the fundamentals. Phoenix sits at the top of almost every major economic indicator,” Matt Pesch, EVP in CBRE Phoenix multifamily institutional Properties group, tells GlobeSt.com. “In population growth and job growth, Phoenix not only leads but leads by a large margin. That translates into pretty robust demand. Then, on the supply side, there is a huge under supply story going on where we are not building enough housing for the demand that is being created. The result has been significant rent growth.”
