How powerful would it be for property owners to know what their residents are going to do before they actually do it? To predict how they would react to certain amenities, or to intervene just before a resident loses loyalty and switches properties?

Leading  indicators can give owners a sense of where the economy is headed in the future, paving the way for investment projects and strategies that will fit future market conditions.

ChargePoint, which has the largest electric vehicle (EV) charging station network in the U.S., released a list of the Top 10 metropolitan areas for EVs. After equating for population differences, ChargePoint scored the cities based on the number of EVs owned as well as the number of public charging stations available on the ChargePoint network.

The cities and the businesses in those communities that invest in EV infrastructure, not surprisingly, also see the largest sales in electric vehicles.We are no longer debating if EVs have a future, but instead are witnessing cities across America compete to be the most EV friendly.

  1.  San Francisco Bay Area, CA
  2. Seattle, WA
  3. San Diego, CA
  4. Austin, TX
  5. Honolulu, HI
  6. Los Angeles, CA
  7. Portland, OR
  8. Detroit, MI
  9. Washington, DC
  10. Boston, MA

With the exception of Honolulu, all of these cities have energy management and dsiclosure laws in Multifamily that require filing with the EPA’s Portfolio Manager. Coincidence or a hidden leading market indicator. We’ll let you decide.
