CAPRE’s 7th Annual NJ Apartment Summit

November 30, 2017
7:00 amto4:30 pm

CAPRE presents its Seventh Annual New Jersey Apartment Summit, the most thorough industry event for active multifamily developers, investors, debt sources, equity sources, construction executives, brokers and property management firms. The commercial real estate industry has peaked in many markets and property types, notably multifamily in the northeast cities. Overall investment sales volume has slowed over the last two years. However, challenge creates opportunity. In 2017, there is an active “middle-market” of investors who seek value-add deals in growing submarkets in-and-around the Tri-State. In addition, institutional investors are considering their next move in today’s market. Interest rates are at historic lows allowing investors access to affordable capital. Equity and JV equity remains active, and alternative capital sources, such as crowd funding are becoming more powerful forces in the multifamily financing arena. Meanwhile, property management firms are looking for ways to retain an attractive tenant base through new-and-improved amenities and day-to-day management enhancements. The region’s condo market is expected to see additional buying-and-selling activity, buffered by low interest rates and the region’s low-unemployment and worker wage gains. Finally, what impact will New Jersey’s gubernatorial election cycle have on the multifamily industry? Four hundredsenior-level executives will attend for important discussion, debate and networking on the myriad of opportunities and challenges in today’s market. If you are active in New Jersey’s multifamily sector, you will not want to miss this important industry event.

Location: Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel & Conference Center – 175 Park Ave., Florham Park
