Demand continues to remain solid for the multifamily asset class as absorption in this year’s first half surged to 98,429 units with an increase of 83,449 units in the second quarter of 2023, according to a new report by Newmark. This number almost quadruples absorption from last year’s first half, and demand is expected to accelerate in the second half of 2023 and beyond to the first half of 2024. 

So far supply – set to reach a 50-year high this year – is keeping pace. Already in this year’s first half, 198,806 units were delivered, a record, and total deliveries for the entire year are projected to surge 51.1% year-over-year. Deliveries are also expected to increase in the second half through 2024.
