As a reminder, the Real Estate Perspective newsletter includes three components; this introductory section, a brief
analysis of events and trends in a segment of the Denver real estate market and the past month's Real Estate Perspec-
tive database entries.
For our market analysis, each month we highlight a particular geographic area or market segment, focusing on the entire
metro area only on a quarterly basis. This month we focus on the pipeline of apartment development activity and it's
prospects in the future. If you wish to review an earlier month's analysis, just log on to the website and go to "Real Es-
tate Perspective Newsletters".
We also wanted to remind you about our `Market Maker' survey, which is now available in the subscriber area on the
products page. The survey, conducted in cooperation with Delta Associates, brings together the knowledge and insight
of over 70 of Denver's top professionals in the real estate industry.
Also available on the products page is our 2002 Apartment Expense report, a compilation of apartment expense data
from the entire metro area.
