This Year’s Conference has been transformed into an online conference format.
The In-Person Conference has been postponed to 2021.

Spanning three days from December 1 through December 3, the conference has been organized in brief, easy-to-consume portions to minimize disruption to your work and personal life. Join live to interact directly with speakers through the Q&A feature, or view the recordings on your own time. Either way, don’t miss the group networking discussions that will allow you to connect with your peers directly to forge new connections and re-establish existing relationships.

Join us on December 10, 2020 in Austin for the 6th annual Texas Multifamily Summit to connect with capital sources and other multifamily owners, developers and investors active across all key Texas markets. The keynote speakers are the Honorable Henry Cisneros and Steve Oden, Partner at Oden Hughes.

He’s currently pursuing new ventures in major infrastructure projects in Texas as well as across the nation.

Steve Oden is the co-founder of Oden Hughes, which is one of the most prominent development and construction firms specializing in Class A multifamily communities in Texas.

Diamonds in the Rough: Value Add Acquisition, Renovation & Management Strategies for a Picked-Over Market

National multifamily investors continue to be bullish on Texas, a region that has been generally been seeing both low vacancy rates and steadily rising rental rates. The result is a very competitive market that has been somewhat picked over. While Texas hasn’t been faced with rent regulation like other major markets across the country, investors are particularly concerned about how the region will be impacted by changes in trade as well as politics. Taxes, supply and the state of the oil market also weigh on investors’ minds when acquiring properties in Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.

  • Discover which suburban markets across the state will outperform urban multifamily in acquisitions
  • Discuss which underwriting assumptions should you be working with

Multifamily Capital Markets: Debt & Equity Sources, Activity, Terms & Structuring

Despite high seller pricing and high competition in Texas markets, there remains plentiful equity and debt capital for new deals. With low interest rates and a bumpy stock market, both institutional investors and private capital sources are actively investing in multifamily acquisitions and development in Texas. However, not all deals fit neatly into the buckets of large volume players, and these deals often require non-traditional capital solutions to bridge the gaps in their capital stacks. Where are Texas multifamily owners and developers turning to for capital today?

Texas Multifamily & the Way Forward: Investment & Development Strategies for Today’s Market

The Texas Triangle comprises some of the fastest growing cities in the US, leading the nation in population growth and job growth. Multifamily inventory in many markets across the state is struggling to keep up with demand, creating expanding opportunities for developers and investors from across the region and the nation. But while Texas is known for being comparatively low-cost, investors are faced with high real estate taxes, ever-increasing costs, and numerous competitors. Additionally, the country’s uncertain political climate has many industry leaders scrambling to get deals done before Q4.
