Completion reflects the annual supply of new apartment unit when its construction is finalized, making it ready for occupancy. A property is deemed finished once the final unit in the project is completed.
Demand Forecast [Next 4 Quarters]: The one-year demand/absorption forecast is based on projections of occupancy and supply. It indicates the anticipated shift in the number of occupied units from one period to the next.
Supply Forecast [Next 4 Quarters]: The forecast for a one-year or four-quarter period is derived from the identified supply as per RealPage’s pipeline data on a project-by-project basis.
Historical Delivery [10-Yr Average]: Historical delivery forecast is the cumulative average of year-end annual supply from 2013-2022.
