Rental unit starts are currently dominating multifamily development, with 94 percent of the market share.

According to the NAHB’s Eye on Housing blog, just 24,000 multifamily condo units were started over the last year, up slightly from 20,000 in 2017. This is expected to continue to shift, as multifamily developers get back into the built-to-sell market.
