September 18, 2014

Eric Moselle: "Weidner owns and operates a large portfolio of apartment homes across the western US and Canada. Every year, I estimate values for each of our investments, and prepare economic and apartment market forecasts for each of our markets."

"There are two reasons why Dupre + Scott reports are so valuable to me. First, they survey a far broader cross section of the market than do research firms in my other markets. In addition, the integrity of their data is vastly superior to that of market reports in my other regions because they are so meticulous and disciplined about confirming operating, transaction and construction data."

"Because of this, I have the resources to conduct robust analysis, and can therefore have great confidence in my Puget Sound portfolio projections and value estimates. Since Weidner has better information in this market, we can make more informed decisions and be more profitable." (Eric is Chief Economist for Weidner Apartment Homes, an international investment and development company based in Kirkland.)
