Builder Confidence in Multifamily Housing Increases as Vacancies Rise

New Multifamily Production Index (MPI) and Multifamily Vacancy Index (MVI) numbers for Q2 indicate confidence levels are again the rise though vacancy rates follow suit. The Multifamily Production Index grew about 25% to 37 in the quarter but remains below the break-even point of 50. The MVI reached 62, signaling an increase in multifamily vacancies across the nation. July numbers bring a positive light to the sector as there were 467,000 authorizations for new 5+ unit buildings compared to 378,000 for June. We will continue to monitor the data and remain bullish on the sector as a whole.
