What to Do About Vacancies During COVID-19

Posted On: May 18, 2020

Do you have vacancies that you are not able to interview and fill as a result of COVID-19?


In April, CBRE Group, Inc. predicted COVID-19’s impact on the U.S. economy would lead to “increased multifamily vacancy and declining rents” through May. Add to that an estimated 6.3% vacancy rate overall by the third quarter of this year. CBRE Econometric Advisors expect a recovery to begin in the Q4.
