Multifamily Market

The multifamily market encompasses the buying, selling and owning of residential buildings with more than one unit. These buildings can contain a handful of apartments or condos or hundreds. Often multifamily buildings are purchased as investments, and the property owners become or hire landlords to manage their tenants.
