Yardi Matrix Multifamily Forecast: Rent Growth to Remain High

Economic and demographic factors fuel apartment demand, although less strongly than in 2015

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 24, 2016 – A new national market outlook from Yardi® Matrix forecasts that jobs and population growth will spur rent growth of about 5% in 2016.

The report, “Multifamily Votes for ‘More of the Same,’” predicts that long-term demographic forces in population growth, employment and demographic trends bode well for continued rent growth. The report predicts growth in 2016 will trail the 6.3% rate recorded in 2015 due to such factors as stock market volatility, depressed oil prices and weak economic growth outside the U.S.

“This deeply researched report offers valuable insight for all participants in the U.S. multifamily housing sector,” said Jeff Adler, vice president of Yardi Matrix.
