SAN FRANCISCO–With a frothy market in place, multifamily developers, investors and brokers are watching carefully for signs of a downturn. This condition is due to sustained job growth, bringing about some of the highest rental rates in the country. And, the abundance of technology workers with healthy salaries continue to demand top-tier multifamily assets in key locations such as the Bay Area.
