The apartment markets that were hurt the most by the housing crash are now experiencing steady growth.

As moving trucks continue to head South, populations in towns across the Sun Belt are growing—and apartment rents are rising.
“If demographics are on a market’s side—rapid population growth, with jobs being created—then it’s no surprise that these markets are reclaiming top spots in various rankings,” says Victor Calanog, chief economist and senior vice president for New York City-based research firm Reis Inc.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
