Michael H. Zaransky’s family has been in the real estate business for three generations. His grandfather began by buying apartment hotels in the Chicago area in the early 1900s. Over the years, his family has pivoted within the multifamily space from purchasing existing properties to developing new ones.
Today, Michael is the founder and managing principal at MZ Capital, which focuses on ground-up construction and apartment syndication. In this episode, he shares two reasons why he’s focusing on new construction suburban-style complexes, his perspective on the state of the economy and its impact on multifamily, and his predictions for the future in terms of rent growth and occupancy.
“I would never, ever bet against the growth and the vibrancy of the United States economy.”
