Emerging Trends

  • Wage growth is one of the top major factor you need to look at by geography to identify
    market opportunities at this stage of the market cycle.

    targeting markets during this stage of the market cycle.
  • Example City – Austin’s pop growth is 3 times higher than the national average.
  • Knowledge towns are a market opportunity because of the talent hubs being supported
    by corporations and educational institutes, these maybe more resilient in the event of a
    downturn in the future.
  • The broader trends are important but you really have to look more at deals on a case by
    case basis than just population sizes of cities when comparing the two at that level. The
    tier 1,2,3 cities have become less of a factor.
  • Hipsturbia – a trend of the younger generation bring their more urban interests into the
    suburban community for things like breweries, vegetarian food, coffee shop, walkability,
    village squares etc there a real opportunity to create urban environments in the
    suburbs.

    continued growth.

    communities are highly amentized. Lots of rooftop garden terraces, pools and gyms.
    Several with conference rooms and one with a basketball court shared among several
    buildings.
