Yardi Matrix Report Shows U.S. Rent Surge in April


$4 increase conforms with historical seasonal performance

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 09, 2018 – Multifamily rents in the U.S. performed strongly in April, rising $4 to $1,377, according to a survey of 121 markets by Yardi® Matrix. Rents have increased by $10 in the last two months, a year-over-year gain of 2.4% and the market’s best performance since last spring.

The gain conforms to the multifamily market’s historically strong springtime performance, allaying concerns that surging deliveries from summer 2017 to February 2018 would dampen growth.

“The healthy seasonal gains are a good sign that rent growth will remain resilient despite the headwinds faced by the market, particularly the peaking supply pipeline that has produced deceleration in some metros,” the report says.

Year-over-year rent growth leaders in April were Orlando, Fla., Sacramento, Calif., Las Vegas, Tampa, Fla., and Phoenix.
