Zell: Multifamily a Good Investment

Bloomberg reports Sam Zell, chairman of Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. (ELS), says multifamily is the only sector of the real estate market that is a smart investment, and says his real estate holdings are down to 30 percent, a record low for him. Noting stocks are overvalued (the S&P is up 14 percent this year), he says, “I think about the headwinds in the world today, and I look at S&P, and I do not know how you can be wildly optimistic.” But he says, “I think the multifamily market will continue to prosper regardless of what happens to the single-family market.” As MHProNews knows, ELS is the largest owner of manufactured home and recreational communities in North America with 380 properties comprised of over 141,000 home and RV sites.
