Jeff Adler on the Resilience of Real Estate

Podcast
The last 18 months or so have been the proverbial roller coaster for the real estate industry. COVID-19 wreaked havoc on the nation but unlocked tremendous latent demand, changed where and how people lived, and left dramatically rising prices in its wake. Jeff Adler, Vice President of Yardi Matrix, has a measure of the pulse of just about all real estate sectors (retail, office, self-storage, but especially apartments and build-to-rent).
