The Ups and Downs of the Multifamily Investment Market
May 9, 2016
Understanding historical market conditions is an essential part of the multifamily industry. To help with this analysis, we’ve created an Index that offers a look at how the market conditions of investing in a multifamily property have changed over time.
AIMISM (pronounced “Amy”) stands for Freddie Mac Multifamily Apartment Investment Market IndexSM. Updated quarterly, the Index combines three market factors to create its value—multifamily mortgage rates, growth rates in multifamily prices, and growth rates in multifamily rental income. The Index’s value can be used to gauge investment market conditions over time on the national level and for specific metros.
In combination with corresponding quarterly analysis from our multifamily research team, an investor will have a unique insight into understanding the market conditions for multifamily properties.
