Overall, conditions are setting up for a solid recovery cycle for apartment leasing fundamental across the Sun Belt over the next three years or so as demand recovers and supply levels moderate a bit into 2022. I believe for several reasons that MAA is in particularly strong position as we head into the recovery part of the cycle. First, we expect that our Sun Belt markets will continue to capture job growth, migration trends, and demand for apartment housing that will be well ahead of national trends. While there were clearly favorable Sun Belt migration trends by both employers and households prior to COVID, this past year the trends accelerated. The primary reasons behind these favorable migration trends, including enhanced affordability, favorable business climates, and lower taxes, will still be with us well past the point we get the pressures associated with COVID behind us.
