Fall 2019 Apartment Report Breakfast - October 22nd

Posted By: Jonathan Clay Apartment Report, Industry News, MFNW Community Updates,

The Fall 2019 Apartment Report debuted to a sold-out ballroom at the Oregon Convention on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. Memorable and our longest running in recent memory, the panelists captivated attendees for over two hours!

The Breakfast’s Speaking Panel began with apartment appraiser Mark Barry who detailed highlights of the Fall 2019 Apartment Report rent and vacancy data and market conditions. State of Oregon economist Christian Kaylor updated attendees Oregon’s economic forecast and growth. Next, Leah Sykes of Greenspoon Marder translated Portland’s FAIR ordinances that will overhaul longstanding best practices for tenant security deposits and resident applications. These new laws are due to take effect on March 1, 2020. The Breakfast concluded with Multifamily NW lobbyist Molly McGrew who broke down the politics behind the 2019 Oregon Legislative Session that brought the first-in-the-nation statewide rent control to Oregon, and Chris Edmonds of Hubbell Communications who explained goals and strategies for the rental housing industry - and to not despair from seeming relentless regulation and assert their experience to educate policy makers. Our engaging master of ceremonies Scott Arena of Income Property Management thoughtfully introduced the panelists and navigated the delicate exercise of soliciting critical funds to fight for just and fair housing policies.
