Property Management and the Apartment Boom in Central Ohio

According to Columbus apartment research and consulting firm, Vogt Strategic Insights, 6,800 apartments have been added in central Ohio in the past three years.

Three measurements were employed by Zillow to gather the rankings. Measurements include: the percentage of total apartments built since 2011 in a community; how quickly new apartments rented in the past year; and overall rent appreciation.
