Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NMHC canceled our 2020 NMHC Research Forum. We understand that this event is valuable to our research community so we hosted a series of webinars to present some of the content originally scheduled for the Forum.

This webinar featured Dr. Dowell Myers of the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California to summarize his recently completed research for NMHC’s Research Foundation. This new research report explores apartment "filtering", the “naturally occurring affordable housing," that occurs as homes grow older. Following the Great Recession and Global Financial Crisis, this process reversed as value-add investors rehabbed apartments into higher rent classes to make up for the lack of new construction.
