2014 Apartment Outlook












































SAN DIEGO COUNTY APARTMENT PERSPECTIVE & OUTLOOK:

By: JAMES V. CARTER (619) 222-9501 JCarter@ARG1031.com | January 2014

The San Diego multifamily investment market will remain strong for core locations and quality assets
as interest rates remain low and the market lacks quality inventory. However, we do expect cap
rates to rise a bit in 2014 as the prospects of rising interest rates loom.

Investor demand remains high due to the low interest rate environment and the robust rental
market. Buyers of all levels are still aggressively seeking to purchase San Diego apartment assets.
There was steady rent growth county-wide in 2013 and should continue for the core metro areas.
