Apartment Industry, Residents Contributed $1.1T to Economy

The report, along with an interactive map and economic impact calculator, is available on the new website www.WeAreApartments.org.

Based on research by economist Stephen S. Fuller, Ph.D., of George Mason University’s Center for Regional Analysis, the report covers the economic contribution of apartment construction, operations and resident spending on a national level plus all 50 states.

In addition, construction and operations data is available for 12 metro areas: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

Highlights from the report include:

- The apartment industry spent $14.8 billion on construction in 2011, and this was a year with one of the lowest multifamily completions on record, just 130,000 new units. The average pre-recession was around 270,000 completions.

- The industry spent $67.9 billion in 2011 to operate and improve the country’s 19.3 million apartments -- more than four times the amount spent on construction -- creating a $182.6 billion economic contribution supporting 2.3 million total jobs.

- The country’s 35 million apartment residents spent $421.5 billion on goods and services in 2011 -- 70 percent of which stayed within the local economy. The spending created a total economic impact of $885.2 billion supporting 22.8 million jobs nationwide.

The combined contribution of apartment construction, operations and resident spending equals $1.1 trillion, or more than $3 billion every day.

In conjunction with the study’s release, the new website www.WeAreApartments.org breaks down the data by each state and the 12 metro areas through an interactive map. Visitors can also use ACE, the Apartment Community Estimator, a new tool that allows users to enter the number of apartment homes of an existing or proposed community to determine the potential economic impact within a particular state.

While there have been month-to-month variances, the overall market can best be characterized as more stable than the roller coaster ride over the past decade. Availability within the resale market has also remained at respectable levels, and foreclosure volumes are at post-recession lows heading into 2015.
