Hot Topics in Multi-Family Valuation

The Southern California apartment market has undergone rapid change during the past five years. These changes impact landlords, investors, lenders, and the valuation of these assets. This presentation is intended to address and bring awareness to some of the current market trends that have arisen during this period such as the impact of California Proposition 10, current population sentiment toward landlords, changes in new development laws (i.e. Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) zones, and rent control on new projects, etc.), the emphasis on FF&E/common area amenities, emergence of different tiers of Class A product, and higher finish levels for unit renovations on repositioned assets. Whether you’re looking to learn about some of the latest apartment trends or are willing to share your own experiences in order to contribute to the collective knowledge.

About Our Speaker:

George Koiso, MAI, heads the Multi-Housing Valuation Practice for the CBRE Los Angeles office. His multifamily team is the fastest growing team at CBRE in Southern California and his clients include most local balance sheet banks, agency lenders, owners, attorneys, and various debt/equity funds across the country. Mr. Koiso was the recipient of CBRE Southern California’s 2015 Public Trust Award, given to 1 in 100+ Southern California valuation employees that demonstrate the best combination of delivering Quality Reports, On-time Delivery, and Client Communication.

Mr. Koiso specializes in multifamily residential properties and has extensive real estate appraisal experience throughout Southern California. He was previously invited to speak at the Northwestern Branch Breakfast Meeting in September 2017 on the Valuation of Small vs. Large Apartment Properties and is one of the region’s most active apartment appraisers. He has specialized in Class A institutional-quality assets, both existing and proposed, having worked on some of the highest-profile assets in Southern California and also specializes in Small Balance Loan (SBL) apartments, value-add/bridge loan assignments, affordable housing properties, and large portfolio assignments; and also serves as an expert witness for property tax appeal purposes, having been involved with over 100 tax appeal cases. In addition, he conducts external appraisal reviews for various financial institutions and was previously a Review Appraiser for JP Morgan Chase, where he achieved the highest internal employment rating.

Mr. Koiso brings a unique perspective to the industry, focusing on team building and continuous personal development within his staff while maintaining the industry’s highest standards. He has mentored individuals throughout his career and is currently a Candidate Advisor to six individuals seeking to earn their MAI designations. Outside of work, he is a dedicated husband of 10+ years and is the son of Japanese immigrants who instilled in him the virtue of a strong work ethic.
