The foundation of the REVIVA process for successful investing in multifamily properties is the identification of economic indicators in real estate markets which both drive appreciation and diminish risk.
REVIVA selects target markets through the analysis of various characteristics of local markets including demographic and workforce composition.
The following research is an example of one component of the information REVIVA considers to identify a target market for sustainability in economic downturns.
Tech labor concentration – or the percentage of total employment – is an influential factor in how “tech-centric” the market is and its growth potential.
According to the Tech Talent Scorecard, Atlanta has a tech talent labor pool of 134,770, or 5.1% of its total employment, compared to the national average of 3.5%.
The 2018 Tech 30 report ranked Atlanta #1 in office rent growth from 2016 to 2018 among all 30 measured tech markets.
