U.S. Rents Change Little in January, Yardi Matrix Reports


Slight gain in average rent conforms with an expected seasonal pattern

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Feb. 01, 2018 – Multifamily rents in the U.S. were virtually unchanged in January, rising $1 to $1,362, according to a survey of 121 markets by Yardi® Matrix. The new monthly average represents a 2.8% year-over-year increase.

“Rent growth tends to be flat through the winter, so the next few months should provide a clue as to the type of growth we will see in 2018,” the report states. Warm-weather markets accounted for most of the rent growth leaders, while growth was flat in such high-supply markets as Austin, Texas, Nashville, Tenn., and San Antonio.

Year-over-year rent growth leaders in January were Sacramento, Calif., Las Vegas, Orlando and Tampa, Fla., and California’s Inland Empire.
