Multifamily housing asking rents remained the same for a second straight month in February 2023, at a national average rate of $1,702, according to the new National Multifamily Report from Yardi Matrix.

As the economy continues to adjust in the post-pandemic period, year-over-year growth continued its ongoing decline. It is now 4.8 percent nationally, down 70 basis points from the previous month and its lowest level in nearly two years.

Asking rent growth remains positive year-over-year in almost every major metro, but 23 of Matrix’s top 30 metros recorded negative growth over the last three months and 17 were negative in February.

“Multifamily rents are playing a waiting game, as rents have essentially leveled over the seasonal winter slowdown,” state Matrix analysts, noting that February has historically recorded minor rent growth gains. “The big question is whether demand and rents pick up as normal in the spring. Demand has come down from 2021 levels, though it remains positive in most markets.”

Average U.S. asking rents in the single-family rental market were also flat at $2,071. The year-over-year increase fell by 80 basis points to 3.4 percent, far below the 14.8 percent growth rate a year ago.

“Near-term performance will hinge not only on demand-supply dynamics at the local level but affordability and the economy,” the report states.
