All REIT's have taken a hit over the past year. This was a result of the building and purchasing boom that was enabled by the creative financing that has caused the sub-prime lending collapse.

Now, the demand for well-located, high-end apartments has risen, as the children of the Baby Boomers are starting families and prefer living in downtown areas near their jobs vs. long commutes that cost in gas and family time. This, along with stiffer loan restrictions and increasing residential interest rates has pushed demand for rental housing, which is reflected in the form of increase in rentals and rental prices.

Through BRE's geographic presence, they should be able to take advantage of this growth. In a strategy to concentrate on high-growth market the company has exited from its non-core Utah market.

Factors like a supply-constrained market, an increase in metropolitan job growth, a recent influx of condo conversions and the company’s focus on a high profile metropolitan market fuels the prospects for BRE.
