Matrix Monthly reports cooling apartment rents in October


U.S. rents remain level for the first time all year.  Key metros continue double-digit growth.

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Oct. 30, 2015 – U.S. multifamily rents in October were $1,166, virtually the same figure as September, according to the newly released edition of Matrix Monthly, a survey of the 111 markets covered by Yardi® Matrix.  It was the first survey in 2015 that did not document a rise in rents month-over-month.

The October year-over-year increase of 6.7% was 10 basis points lower than September’s post-recession high-water level.  The survey found signs of a potential shift in rent patterns. Despite double-digit percentage rent growth year-over-year in Portland, Ore., San Francisco, Seattle and Denver, the rate of increases are showing signs of moderating.  Meanwhile, markets such as Atlanta, Orlando, Fla., Phoenix, Dallas and Tampa, Fla., are displaying later-stage strength.

Yardi Matrix serves as a business development tool for brokers, sponsors, banks and equity sources that underwrite multifamily investment transactions.
