Event Description

Last year’s Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments report was clear: The DC Metro Area is facing a housing shortage, needing 320,000 more housing units by 2030 to keep up with growth.

This, of course, was pre-COVID. Now that we’ve settled in, at least a little bit, to our new normal, it’s time to take a look ahead at the single family, multifamily, and senior housing segments in the Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and DC markets:

  • What impact, if any, has COVID had on current and projected housing demand and product type?
  • What’s the right mix of single family, multifamily, and senior housing to meet demand?
  • How does the demand vary by jurisdiction?
  • Where are investors looking to spend money?
  • From a policy perspective, how will the results of the upcoming presidential election move the needle, and in what direction?
