Unlock the keys to the evolving landscape of the multi-family rental market with our recent presentation on the latest trends. Delving into the dynamic preferences of Millennials and Gen Z, who collectively make up a significant portion of the renting population, we explore crucial insights essential for landlords and developers.

Discover why outdoor amenities, technological integrations, and pet-friendly environments are paramount for attracting and retaining renters, particularly from the Gen Z cohort.
