Multifamily is the safest investment next year, particularly with rising fears of a recession. The asset class is more protected against downturns than any other asset class, making it a safe investment as the cycle matures.

“Multifamily is definitely more protected against economic downturns than any other type of property,” Nat Kunes, SVP of investment management at AppFolio, tells GlobeSt.com. “A shift in the economy doesn’t mean people will forgo homes. They might forgo retail experiences, which may force retailers to close up shop—literally—but people will always need homes. It’s as simple as that. Yes, the multifamily market might experiences subtle shifts, but those shifts are nothing in comparison to the impact felt by investors in other property types.”
