As home builders and multifamily developers consider what and where to build in a COVID and post-COVID world, questions abound about the demand for suburban versus urban housing, single-family versus multifamily and rental versus for-sale. Significant changes are underway in housing demand patterns, but are these changes short-term shifts or long-term trends? How should we accommodate work from home trends? Will single-family built-for-rent play a larger role? And what are the demand prospects for luxury, middle-income and affordable segments? This webinar replay will explore these and many more critical elements driving suburban, urban, for-sale and rental demand across the U.S. in the wake of the pandemic.


Participants in this webinar replay will:


  • -Gain an understanding of how the housing landscape is changing in the wake of the pandemic and how developers are addressing the new realities.
  • -Explore how developers are addressing the need for more affordable urban, suburban, rental and for-sale housing.
  • -Identify the prospects for development in urban, walkable suburban, low-density suburban, exurban and rural locations.
  • -Learn how the townhouse and single family built-for-rent sector will grow in the near future.
