Prospects for economic growth counter anticipated slowdown in rent growth
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2017 – The strong growth in U.S. rents and property values of the past few years should continue and propel the multifamily marketplace in 2017, according to Yardi® Matrix.
A new national market outlook report from Yardi Matrix, “Can the Good Times Keep Rolling?”, predicts that multifamily market fundamentals in most metros will remain positive even as the rate of rent increases slows. The prospect of new federal tax cuts, infrastructure spending and reduced business regulations could stimulate the economy, although potential tariffs and uncertainty surrounding the incoming administration’s policies could temper that growth. Overall, “2017 is shaping up to be the biggest year for new supply since the financial crisis,” the report says, while “demand for multifamily is poised to remain robust for years.”
