Co-living and multifamily residences are here to stay despite short-term concerns about the need for social distancing. Even during times of COVID-19 related building restrictions, co-living and multifamily assets is still an increasingly hot topic in California.
Developers are turning to building multifamily residential units during our current housing shortage peak. Co-living uniquely offers a supply of upscale housing at an attractive price point. Modular build-outs, people living in smaller units, co-living and multifamily developments that have large shared common areas and decked-out amenities are the future features of California housing.
Ultimately, the primary incentive for co-living has always been creating affordable housing, and such demand has only been increasing. So, it’s crucial to be mindful that social distancing is only a concern in the short term. The lack of apartment and multifamily residential construction will need to be addressed quickly, and competition for top-performing talent to markedly meet the surge in demand is right around the corner.
Increasing Demands For Qualified Talent
Lenders are also actively looking at co-living. As the pandemic continues to uproot the economy and act as a torrent of financial undoing, investors with deep pockets are considering co-living as a long-term investment strategy. What’s more, for those looking to invest and build, using modular build-outs has dropped construction time significantly.
Forward-thinking talent is essential to meeting these new project demands head-on. However, due to the unemployment rate skyrocketing, the market has become saturated with unqualified professionals. Varying regulatory requirements, new and emerging sectors, and rising construction costs are just some of the challenges a residential development enterprise must overcome. Now, it has also become difficult to find a qualified candidate.
