If you’ve sat around comfortably in your rental while you watched the housing market come crashing down, you may have already started congratulating yourself for making such as wise choice by staying put in your apartment. However, according to the Market Watch article, “

Double-digit rent hikes are on the way,” you may not be congratulating yourself for long.

The article states that, according to development experts, impending shortages in the multi-family housing market will soon lead to double-digit rent increases. This shortage, coupled with a rise in people looking to rent, will give apartment owners an advantage that they haven’t seen since the mid-1990s.

Some cities are already noticing an increase in rent, with some rising by as much as 7 or 8 percent each year. And, although we will see a growth of apartment developments throughout the United States this year (about a 16 percent increase from 2010), it still won’t meet the rising demand. Read More→

You may have heard it from your parents or loved ones: Buying a house is always better than renting an apartment. However, for young professionals who are new to the corporate working world, renting a chic downtown Atlanta apartment is not only a popular option, but also a responsible choice for those looking to live close to their places of employment. Add that to stricter lending standards and lack of buyers with a down payment, and all signs point to an impending Atlanta apartment boom noted John Burns Real Estate Counseling in 

Professional Builder.

The article also states that the population of 20 to 34 year olds is expected to grow considerably within the next few years. This is likely to increase the number of renters in the housing market.

Plus, 1.2 million adults had to move back in with parents during the housing recession, leaving many more than ready to fly the nest and spread their wings in their own space. Read More→

The economy may still be down; however, new apartment construction is not. There will soon be new opportunities for you to finally move to exciting Buckhead. According to the

Atlanta Business Chronicle, Preserve Properties, LLC, led by Atlanta apartment developer John Draper, has plans for a new eight-story, 250-unit luxury apartment building. The site is located at 92 West Paces Ferry Road and is adjacent to the St. Regis.

Although, it will still take some time before you can make the move into this luxury building. There are no plans to start developing this year. Preserve Properties must still close on the purchase of the 2.5 acre site.

These new luxury apartments mark one of the first opportunities for new development since Buckhead leaders expanded SPI-9, or the special public interest zoning district; zoning meant to transform Buckhead’s traffic ridden streets into a walkable urban district.

Its seems that investor confidence is increasing in both luxury apartments and Buckhead’s influence on Gen Y workers as a prime housing and working location.

According to Denise Starling, the executive director of the Buckhead Area Transportation Management Association (BATMA), the apartment building may complement city plans for a new international district that would include foreign consulates, office buildings and residences connected by sidewalks and quaint shops and cafes.

For more information about this new Buckhead project, visit the

Atlanta Business Chronicle website.

Not Enough Homes To Go Around

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Many people enjoy the freedom of renting: You don’t have to deal with home improvements or come up with extra cash when something breaks. You can even pick up and leave as jobs come and go or as the mood strikes. Now, with the creation of new jobs in a slowly recovering economy, there is an increase demand by new renters wanting to take on the joys of apartment living. However, the lack of credit needed to finance new apartment developments is causing some rents to increase and may lead to a shortage in the near future.

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) chief economist, David Crowe, we will likely see the construction of 133,000 new apartments across the U.S. in 2011. However, to keep the demand in balance there needs to be between 250,000 and 300,000 units constructed.

This pressure is felt across all types of multi-family housing. Even affordable rental housing, the kind that is primarily driven by the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program, is feeling the strain. According to Robert Greer, president of Michaels Development Company, the affordable housing market is rebounding. However, the depth of the current recession means that there are more people needing this type of assistance than there are apartments. Read More→
