The Best Multifamily Contractors in Washington, District of ColumbiaPublished in GC Magazine September 10, 2019 Editorial Staff
In 2017, Curbed Washington DC reported that the U.S. Capital is in need of housing units to keep up with the upward trend in the job market. Multifamily developers and business owners see this as an opportunity, especially since the city’s rental rates have risen 45% between 2005 and 2015. If that trend is any indication, the Capital’s multifamily industry has the potential for high returns on investment for stakeholders. Even with a possible recession on the horizon in 2020, experts are confident that the market will continue to do well due to D.C.’s historically recession-resistant marketplace.
