    There's a whole lot of common sense truth to what's in this video. That said, none of us have a crystal ball and a forecast is still a forecast. But it's good to think about none the less.

    Thanks for the comments Brent! That is very true, the farther out you go in any forecast, the less accurate it will be. But if you base your model on calendar years, and use the actual contractual lease dates to model real rental patterns, the projections for the first two years should be closer to an accounting than the rough guesstimates that are in use in multifamily today.

    Keep the feedback coming, guys!
