MHN Poll: Biggest Challenges H2 2023

Going into the second half of the year, how have your perceptions of the multifamily market changed?

MHN has a new reader poll! Building on our December poll asking about the biggest challenges that multifamily would face  in the first half of 2023, we want to know the hurdles that you anticipate going into the second half of the year.

In December’s poll, nearly three quarters of respondents (74 percent) cited interest rates and capital availability as their primary concern, with slowing rent growth (12 percent) and inflationary pressures (9 percent) ranking distantly in second and third, respectively. Now, as the industry anticipates a possible pause on increases in the federal funds rate, how have your perceptions of the biggest challenges changed? Have they changed?

Last month, we asked about readers’ primary development geographic focuses. More than two-thirds of respondents identified the Sun Belt as their geographic development priority, with the Southeast and Southwest comprising 50 and 17 percent of votes, respectively.
