  • Special Reception

Bisnow Multifamily Annual Conference NorCal

Multifamily development is dominating San Francisco and the bay area in a big way. It is no secret rents are very high in SF and so is the demand for more buildings. However, demographics in renters are changing across the country. There are not as many married couples with children, millennials are living with their parents for longer, and people are choosing to rent longer rather than buy a home. Owners and developers must adapt to the evolving expectations of the current pool of renters. According to the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), there is a need for 4.6 million new apartments by 2030 in order to keep up with the current demand.

In San Francisco in particular, affordable housing is also an incredibly large issue plaguing the city. With construction costs rising about 5% a year, it is no wonder affordable housing and moderately prices homes are few and far between. In 2017, the city had only 1,210 affordable homes for 85,000 households in need, creating a huge imbalance in the city. 

Bisnow is hosting our BMAC Northern California event to dive into these parallels in the local multifamily market and discuss whats on the horizon. Come join us in November to hear from top multifamily executives, discover new advancements, learn about new technologies, and hear more about these topics to network with the biggest influencers in multifamily real estate. As always, Bisnow provides an abundance of opportunities for networking and deal-making in a fast-paced (almost) never boring, real 9-5 day (not like your current job). We look forward to seeing you there!
