How is Location Tier Calculated?

The APV United States Rental Property Location Ranking System assigns rankings to property locations by measuring market size, population density, propensity to rent, and household income. The system groups geographic areas into clusters and ranks them from 1 to 40. The most desirable locations, which have the highest readings for these metrics, fall into APV Location Tier 1.

As is the case for any commodity, price is a function of supply and demand. The methodology used to establish these rankings focuses on demand-side attributes only. Users should also make an independent investigation into the supply side of the equation by examining multi-family housing starts and occupancy rates.
