9:30 AM - 10:30 AM | The Investment Landscape: How Multifamily is Driving Economic Recovery
This past year, rent trends showed significant improvement and even stabilized in some hard-hit markets. As we continue to navigate 2021, more promising shifts have emerged, including increases in suburban market growth and the ending of eviction ban extensions. Multifamily investments continue to drive economic recovery, as work and home merges and the flexibility of a lease becomes more appealing and increasingly vital to relocating families, the future of Multifamily remains promising. Join our expert panel as they examine the impacts of the last year, and discuss the future for the multifamily market.

2:15 PM - 3:00 PM | A Look Into Development & Construction Challenges & Opportunities
2021 has seen some serious ebbs and flows for developers. From skyrocketing costs of supplies to the shifting buyers market, developers have had their fair share of challenges. However, with every challenge comes an opportunity to innovate, and as it becomes more apparent that the hybrid workforce is here to stay, developers have been presented with a unique opportunity to create multifunctional spaces for both work and home life. During this engaging hour we will discuss some of the shifts of the last year and how the Industry has responded. We will explore emerging trends in the development of multifamily projects, and examine what changes are here to stay for developers moving forward.

This session will tackle key factors affecting multifamily capital lending, including changes in restrictions from FHFA, increased mandates from Freddie and Fannie, and how these new restrictions will likely reduce lending power of the agencies, but borrowers will still have many other options, including commercial banks, life companies, and CMBS. Our lending experts will discuss all this and more during this informative session.

9:00 AM - 9:45 AM | The Property Owner and Landlord Outlook
The eviction moratorium is having a serious impact on many property owners and unfortunately, the future continues to hold great uncertainty. However, there is an air of optimism between property owners and landlords as the nation continues to take the right steps to begin economic recovery and the effects of the stimulus package begin to take hold. Panelists in this session will examine the implications of the eviction moratoriums, solutions for collecting back rent, and provide insight into what is to come for Landlords and property owners during this exploratory opening session.
